How to Make a Tulip Wreath

I love adding a beautiful wreath to my front door. It’s a simple way to welcome guests to your home. And, it adds a touch of spring color to your yard.

Tulip wreaths make lovely front door decorations for springtime or Easter. The colorful tulips make the rainy spring weather just a little bit brighter!

Of course, you can vary the color based on your front door color. You can make an absolutely stunning wreath in almost any color.

How many tulips do you need to make a wreath?

To make this tulip wreath, you’ll need about 10-15 tulips. I used pink tulips. You could also use all one color or a mix of colors.

If you’re using real tulips, you’ll want to wait to add them to the wreath until they start to bloom. This way, they’ll last longer on the wreath.

If you’re using faux tulips, you can add them to the wreath as soon as you make it.

What kind of tulips should you use for a wreath?

For this tulip wreath DIY, I used pretty pink faux tulips. I just love the bright pink color. But, you could use dark pink tulips or light pink if you prefer.

Fake tulips will last much longer than real tulips in a wreath. So, if you want your gorgeous wreath to last all spring, I recommend using faux tulips.

If you’d prefer to use different colors, you can make a rainbow wreath. Add them to the wreath in order to make an actual rainbow. Or, just mix them together for a colorful mix.

Best greenery for a spring wreath

This tulip wreath has greenery from two different types of flowers (tulips and white flowers). And it has added eucalyptus greenery to fill in the empty spots.

You could also use ferms or any other bunches of greens you find at your craft store. A happy wreath is a great way to brighten up your front door.

What kind of ribbon should you use for a tulip wreath?

To keep with a farmhouse style, this spring tulip wreath has a burlap bow. But, you could use any type of ribbon you like. You could even use a pretty spring patterned ribbon.

Just make sure the ribbon is wide enough to make a big bow. I usually use 2 1/2″ – 3″ wide ribbon for my bows.

More flowers to use in a spring wreath

If you don’t want to use tulips, there are plenty of other flowers that would look just as pretty in a spring wreath. Try adding some daffodils, hyacinths, or even pansies. See what you can find at your local craft store.

You could also try using a mix of different flowers for a more colorful spring wreath. I really think that the bright pink of this tulip just screams spring.

Best wreath form

This tulip wreath was made with a grapevine wreath form. But, you could use a wire wreath form or even a straw wreath form. You may need to add more of your favorite flower depending on what type of wreath form you use.

Wreath making tips

When making a wreath, it’s important to start by adding larger pieces. This will help you fill in the gaps with the smaller pieces.

I also like to add a few flowers facing the opposite direction of the others. This gives your wreath more dimension and interest.

If you’re using a wire wreath form, be sure to cover the wire with ribbon or something else. This will help prevent your flowers from getting caught on the wire.

Finally, be sure to fluff your wreath before hanging it up. This will help the flowers look their best.

I hope these tips help you make a beautiful tulip wreath for your home!

Home decor decorating tips for wreaths

When it comes to decorating your home with wreaths, there are a few things you can do to take your wreath game up a notch.

First, try hanging your wreath on a mirror. This will help reflect light and make your wreath look even more beautiful.

Second, drape a strand of lights around your wreath. This will give it a lovely glow and make it stand out even more.

Finally, try adding some bows or other embellishments to your finished wreath. This will help give it a personal touch and make it truly unique.

Remember, wreath making isn’t an exact science. You can follow my step by step instructions if you want to. But, you can make many different types of spring wreaths. Just get creative with this wreath DIY and add your own personal touches.

With these tips, you’re sure to create beautiful, one-of-a-kind wreaths for your home. So, get creative and have fun!

When should you take down a spring wreath?

I like to keep my spring tulip wreath up until Memorial Day. After that, I switch it out for a summer wreath. But, you can keep your spring wreath up as long as you’d like.

How do you store a tulip wreath?

When it’s time to take your wreath down, be sure to store it properly. I like to wrap mine in a garbage bag and then put it in a box. This will help protect it from dust and other damage.

With proper care, your tulip wreath should last for many years. So, don’t be afraid to take it down and put it back up each year.

DIY tulip wreath directions

Using the wire cutters cut the stems of all of the flowers and half of the eucalyptus bunch. Leave about 3 inches of the stem.

Add some hot glue to each tulip stem before placing it in between the grapevines.

When adding the tulip stems, start with the top section of the wreath first. Add the tulips first. Just weave the stem in between the grapevine.

Next, add the eucalyptus pieces to give it some fullness and added green color. Then sporadically add the pieces with the white flowers with yellow centers.

The pre made bow had a tie in the back so I used that to tie the bow to the grapevine. After securing the bow add the flowers to the bottom section of the wreath underneath the bow.
