One of my most popular online tutorials AND most popular finished products is for a tulip wreath!
Maybe it’s because we’re just coming off of Fall and Christmas with a different color scheme and not a lot of florals……everyone is ready for bright spring colors and new flowers!
I saw Julie from Southern Charm Wreaths make one of these a few years ago and I was hooked! Here’s how I make it:
- 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 75yds for $9.99 – use a coupon to save but it lasts a long time!
- 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! (pro tip: the white usually sells out first so grab it when you can.) Remember you’re looking for the MINI tulips – not the larger ones that sell for $9.99 a bunch.
- Hot glue – I only use these Gorilla Glue Sticks
Here’s How I Make It:
- 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 you’re beautiful new tulip wreath!
