Tulip Door Wreath

With all the door wreaths I have made in the past year you would think that I have one for every season.
And I do, well almost.
For some reason I never made a door wreath for spring.
I have no clue how that one slipped through but it did.
I have been wracking my brain on what to do for a spring door wreath.
I found a cool post by Jocie at One Project Closer: The Better Half on how to make a fabric flower.
I love her tutorial and think these would be super cute on a wreath and then I remembered that our front door is out in the open and any fabric flowers I might make wouldn’t last very long.
(whomp whomp whomp)

Thankfully my friend Virginia over at LiveLoveDIY posted the cutest tulip door wreath and I knew I had to make one for our house!

I made a quick trip to the dollar tree and picked up about 15 bundles of tulips in three different colors.
You will also need a foam wreath form and ribbon.

Take a neutral ribbon and wrap your wreath form.
You will want your ribbon to over lap so that you can slide the tulips in between the ribbon and the form.

Cut your tulip stems from the bundle using wire snips, and begin adding one color at a time into every other ribbon overlap.
Start on the outside and then move to the inside of the wreath.
You will end up with one tulip per overlap.

Next you will add the white tulips to your door wreath (or whatever color you chose that will compliment).
Continue with the same process as the pink tulips in every other ribbon over lap.
The only difference this time is you will want your white tulips towards the middle of the wreath.

If you want to add a third color like I did you will also add this to the middle.
I chose a smaller tulip for the final layer.
Once all of your tulips are in go back and check for any bare spots and fill in with any color you choose.

It’s that easy!
You can wire them in if you like but If your ribbon is wrapped tightly enough there is no need the tulips will stay in place perfectly.

Are you ready to it the dollar tree and make your own tulip wreath?

    I ADORE this!! I really hope there are enough tulips at my Dollar Tree to make this. I think it adds such a great burst of color, and tulips are one of my absolute favorites.

    Holy cow Jacque I love this! I am sort of obsessed with wreaths anyways…so this is right up my alley. I have never seen the ribbon trick either. Brilliant! I probably would have stuck the tulips in the form! Thanks for sharing. Pinning this one for sure. :)

      I’ve never seen the ribbon trick, either! I would have done the same thing you said – stuck the wire stems in the form. That is a superb idea that I’ll remember and use for other wreaths, as well!

    Tulips are my favorite flower and this is a gorgeous idea. I like how you slide the tulips in place instead of using a glue gun. Ingenious. I”m pinning it and trying it! Thanks for sharing!

    This wreath is absolutely beautiful, but I would think the tulips would begin to fall out if this wreath was hung outside due to the effects of wind and rain. How did it hold up outside for you?

      Funny you should ask, just yesterday I had the first tulip stem fall out. It was laying on the front porch and I was able to slip it right back in. If you wrap the ribbon somewhat tight they more stems you put in the tighter it gets. Our front porch is fully exposed to all elements … this has been the best money I have ever spent on a wreath ever!

    Thank you for this great tutorial. I just finished making this wreath (tomorrow is the first official day of spring, after such a long winter!). My wreath came out gorgeous! What a fantastic idea about the ribbon. I’m thinking I can easily remove the tulips and easily re-create wreaths for each season. Thanks again, I can’t wait to hang my wreath in the morning (too windy tonight) I’m hoping I don’t have to hot glue most of the tulips down due to high winds!

    About how many tulips are needed and size of wreath? Would like an idea so,don’t come home with too many or not enough. Many thanks.

    Awesome wreath!! Is the wire edged ribbon the key to making it work? Thanks so much for such a detailed tutorial with beautiful photos!
