Dress up your front door with a lovely tulip wreath. This floral wreath is really not hard to make, but does take a couple of hours from start to finish. This is my first tulip wreath diy, but won’t be my last. I love the vibrant all-red tulips wreath. Next time, I plan to try a mixture of pink and white tulips.
What You’ll Need:
- A grapevine wreath (any size)
- Several miniature tulip stems (The number of tulip stems you need depends on the size of your wreath. You will want to have enough tulips to completely cover the wreath. *Tip: Bring the wreath into the store and arrange the stems on top of it to get a better estimate of how many you need to buy.)
- Floral Wire
- Ribbon (for hanging)
How To Make It:
- My tulip stems had 3 “shoots” of tulips on every stem. I used scissors to cut each “shoot” from the main stem. Be sure to include the green leaves with the tulips and don’t throw away any extra greenery – you can add that to the wreath once you are finished.
- Cut about a 6 inch piece of floral wire and wrap it around the end of one of the tulip stems several times until secure. Be sure to leave 2-3 inches of floral wire at the bottom of the stem. If you want extra security, you can use floral tape to tape the wire to the stem – I skipped this step.
- Place the tulip stem on the wreath where you want to secure it. Thread the base of the tulip stem (along with the 2-3 inches of floral wire) into the grapevine and wrap the 2-3 inches of wire around and around the grapevine until it is secured.
- Place the next tulip stem on the wreath where it will be close to but not on top of the previous stem. You want to place the tulip stems close together so there aren’t any gaps in coverage as you continue to go around the wreath. You may need to place some stems side by side to achieve this effect.
- Continue placing and securing tulip stems onto the wreath until you have gone all the way around it. *Important: Make sure the tulip stems are all turned in the same direction.
- Take a look at your wreath and see if there are any gaps that need to be filled in with tulips or greenery from the stems. My tulip stems had sprigs of greenery that I wired and added in to the wreath.
- Weave a length of ribbon onto the back of your wreath for hanging.
Enjoy your beautiful tulip wreath! Tulips are a great choice for spring wreaths and summer wreaths.
