Learn How To Make this Beautiful Tulip Wreath!
This tulip wreath is one of my most popular online tutorials AND one of my most popular finished products. The beauty it brings to any front door decor makes it easy to see why.
When we’re coming off the Fall and Christmas seasons with their dark, rich colors and greenery, it seems everyone is ready for bright spring colors and flowers! And few things say spring more than tulips!
I saw Julie from Southern Charm Wreaths make one of these a few years ago and I was hooked! And today, I’m going to teach you how to make one of your own.
If you’re not quite ready to take this on yourself, you can purchase one from my Etsy shop here.
All of the supplies you’ll need are listed below. I also shared my best tips and tricks for where to find these supplies – and how to save money on them!
- 12″ x 2″ Styrofoam form with the FLAT sides
- You can buy wholesale from Darice HERE. I like using the ones with the 2″ flat sides so it’s easier to attach the tulips on the edges.
- 1.75″ Floral pins (also called Greening pins)
- You can find these at Walmart and most craft stores or larger bulk quantities often for less on Amazon like this HERE. If you’ve been following my Facebook page for a while you may have seen that I actually bought a 5lb box of these pins last year. (P.S. That’s a LOT of pins lol but it was a really good price!)
- Unwired floral ribbon
- I buy this ribbon at Michael’s. It’s $9.99 for 75 yds but it lasts a long time! Use a coupon to save.
- 12-13 Mini Tulip Bushes
- I buy these from Michael’s but only when they go on sale. They’re originally $3.99 but often go on sale for $1.99 and if you have a total purchase coupon the price is even better!
- Remember you’re looking for the MINI tulips – not the larger ones that sell for $9.99 a bunch.
- Pro Tip: the white usually sells out first so grab it when you can.
- Hot glue
- I only use these Gorilla Glue Stick
Now that you have all of your supplies, it’s time to make a tulip wreath of your own.
I know people learn differently. No matter how you learn best, I’ve got you covered. You can follow along with my step by step instructions or watch either the long or short video below. If you’d like, you can even do both!
Let’s get started!
- Wrap Styrofoam form with the ribbon, securing the beginning and end with floral pins
- Push up greenery on each tulip stem and trim the ends of the stem, leaving about 1″ below each “bundle” of tulips
- Grab 3 bundles and secure to the form with a pin and then add hot glue on top
- Go all the way around the wreath, adding each bundle next to the one before it, all in the same direction
- Then grab 2 bundles and do the same around the sides/edges of the form
- Fill in any holes or sparse areas when you’re finished with any leftover pieces you have
- Take a piece of your unwired ribbon (or any ribbon you like), make a loop and a knot. Place pins above and below the knot into the form and secure with hot glue
- Hang and admire your beautiful new tulip wreath!
