DIY Spring Tulip Wreath

CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT DIY Spring Tulip Wreath2I am really excited to share my project today because it's one that I have been mulling over for a DIY Spring Tulip Wreath! I have actually seen several versions of it in blogland and on Etsy, but have always waited too late to give it a try. So when I saw it was beginning to appear in stores such as Pier 1, I knew the time had come to make my own!

CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT DIY Tulip Wreath SuppliesThere are actually versions using grapevine wreaths in both circular and more whispy forms as well as Styrofoam as the wreath base, but I decided that I liked this one from The Frugal Homemaker the best. So with the help of my co-host Baby Kitty,  I set about gathering up my supplies!

Here's what you will need:
  • 15 tulip bunches in 3 colors...5 of each. I chose white, pink and dark pink. (Mine came from Michaels at 40% off with a 20% off total purchase coupon as well...or just under $2.00 per bunch.)
  • Grapevine wreath (I spent $3.00 at Hobby Lobby with a coupon. Mine was about 16 inches wide.)
  • Wire snips
  • Jute twine to hang
I spent a total of just under $35 for the supplies...a little more than I usually like to spend...but I love this one so much that I know I will use it year after year!

    Separate the tulip bunches into single stems. These made 8 stems, although that would depend on where you purchase your tulips. Slide the leaves up the stem until they are directly under the flowers.

    CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT DIY Spring Tulip Wreath tutorial 2Insert the stems into the wreath at a side angle, making sure that they all face the same direction as you go. They seemed to be secure and did not need to be hot glued as long as they were pushed well into the wreath. The teacher in me started out trying to follow a pattern for the colors but soon discovered that it was best just to trust my eyes.

    CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT DIY Spring Tulip WreathAs a final touch, smooth the tulips, tucking them in as you go, so that they flow more to the side rather than sticking up. Add a loop with a length of jute twine to the back and it's ready to hang! I love mine and wish I had done it long ago!

    And just in case you are looking for more ideas for your front door this spring, here’s my POTTERY BARN INSPIRED BUNNY BANNER…a fun alternative to a wreath!

    And I have to admit neighbors may think I'm crazy, but it's already on my front door! :-)
    How about you? Are signs of spring starting to show up at your house?

    Remember to pin it!

    1. This is gorgeous, but I would hang it inside!! I my just have to gather the supplies to make this.
      hugs to you and the staff,

    2. Absolutely beautiful, Debbie! I like that it's nice and full with a mixture of lovely colors of tulips!

    3. The tulip wreath is just lovely! I love the 3 shades of pink and together they make a beautiful presentation. I think I would find a spot to hang this in the house somewhere, at my house my front door wreath seems to be a favorite spot for birds to nest! Love the bunny banner as well. I seem to always love what I find in the Pottery Barn catalog, its always fun to make a look alike for less.

    4. How lovely! The pink is perfect for this time of year.

    5. It's so pretty, Debbie. I just may need to make one or two in purple!

    6. This is lovely and i am so ready for Spring, i need this for my front door. Thanks Debbie.

    7. I LOVE your wreath! I almost made one myself this year but got so overwhelmed by the enormous amount of choices at our local store, At Home, that I left with only a fabulous French country vase! Maybe next year?

    8. SPECTACULAR! I've seen these too and was putting off trying it under the assumption that it would cost a fortune to make. Love the tutorial, love your blog and am so grateful for the inspiration! Found you through BNOTP.

    9. Oh my goodness, this wreath is SO pretty! It's making me go and buy a whole bunch of tulips. So pretty and SO EASY! Love it!

    10. What a beautiful Spring Wreath! Love the colors and that you kept the leaves on the tulips, unlike others I've seen. Pinning to share.

    11. I tried your link for the Pottery Barn inspired bunny banner but it kept saying error. Any suggestions. Love the tulip wreath.

      1. Thanks so much for letting me know! I have fixed it now! :-)

    12. What size wreath did you use?

    13. Hi, Debbie, I had to comment on this post...That is the most beautiful tulip wreath I have ever seen!! I have been wanting one for some time, but figured I could make one. You have given me the inspiration to finally go for it. Thanks so much for sharing(if mine turns out half as good as yours I will be thrilled!! Thanks again😀
