Tulip wreaths have been roaming around Pinterest for years. The very first time I saw one, I fell in love. For some reason, I was a little intimidated by them because I thought they would be expensive and take forever to make. I finally decided to try my hand at my own DIY spring tulip wreath…and found out I was wrong.

It wasn’t expensive and it took about an hour, from start to finish. I saw tulip wreaths online that ranged from $80 to $150. The total for this wreath came out at about $40 (the tulip bunches were 50% off) because I didn’t have to purchase a grapevine wreath and I had good wire cutters. Even if you had to purchase those two things, you could still come in for under $80 and save yourself some money!

Make it! DIY Spring Tulip Wreath Tutorial

Step 1:

Put your wreath on a flat surface. I usually work on the floor but it’s way easier to use a table if you have one available. I reused the wreath I made last fall so I just left the greenery on. The greenery is totally optional. I’m not sure it adds all that much.

 Step 2:

Roughly place your tulip bushes around the wreath to see what pattern you want to use. This will also give you an idea of how many bunches you need. I used 10 bunches for a 22-inch wreath.

Step 3:

With wire cutters, cut the tulip bushes apart. You really don’t have to measure…eyeball the stems so they are about 10 inches long.

Step 4:

Now for the fun part. Starting at the top of your wreath, (I already had a hanger attached) begin sticking the tulips into the grapevine. No glue or wire needed. You can stick the stems right in the grapevine. I did the left side first and made sure to place the stems so the blooms were pointing up and to the left. For the right side, point the blooms up and to the right. They will meet in the middle at the top of your wreath.

Step 5:

Place the wreath on your door and stand back to admire your new creation!

A few tips:

  • Try to pick tulips that contrast with the color of your door. If you do, your wreath will pop right off your door and add amazing curb appeal.
  • This 22-inch wreath is big. It’s on the verge of being too big. It would be perfectly fine to use an 18 or 20-inch wreath. You could use fewer tulips without losing any of the beauty. 
  • Have fun with your tulip color arrangement. Mix the colors up or use all one color. When you hit the tulip aisle at your craft store, just go crazy!

  1. Ann, your wreaths are always the most beautiful on the blogospshere and this one does not disappoint. I’ve made 4 of yours over the last couple of years and they have all turned out beautifully. I am anxious to get started on this tulip wreath, I’ve seen several other tulip wreaths while searching the web, but yours is the most natural looking I’ve seen. Thanks once again for helping me with my Spring decor!

  2. What a beautiful outcome! You certainly have an eye for color and design. I also love your writing style. It’s very organized and easy to read. I think I’ll be making my own tulip wreath soon!

  3. Love your wreath, makes me feel happy that spring will soon come.????

  4. I love it and I’m inspired to make one!

  5. Carolyn Urbaniak says:

    I LOVE this Tulip Wreath. One of my favorite flowers, and am going to make it!! Thank you for all of your beautiful ideas, musings, not to mention yummy recipes.
    I look forward to my email from “” every day!


  6. Kristi bryant says:

    OMG Ann,

    I love this tulip wreath! I’ve always loved tulip wreaths but never wanted to spend $100+ for one. You’ve inspired me to make my own wreath. I’ll let you know how it goes.

    Thanks Ann.

    Kristi B

  7. Ann Your tulip wreath is beautiful- makes you think Spring isn’t far away.I also love your door colour.

  8. Wendy Sherwood King says:

    Hi Ann, could you add me to your newsletter list? I love the wreath, but most of all, I love your door. Where did you find a navy metal door? My little rented house is light blue with mediteranean blue shutters and porch. I need your door to replace the one I have, which was kicked in at some point before I moved in. It is white (yuck) and has a few huge cracks down it thru which I can see light!! I have taped them over, but it looks so awful!. I have requested a new door from my landlord. If I could refer him to your door with a picture and source, I might be able to vastly improve the look of my porch and especially my safety. Many thanks!

    1. Ann Drake says:

      The door is metal but it’s painted navy blue. It was white when we had it installed. Are you permitted to paint your front door? Here is the link to sign up for my email list.

  10. Sheila Gunderson says:

    Beautiful Spring wreath Ann.

  11. I made one last Spring. Easu and very pretty. I like the 2 different color tulips. After all this snow the past few days and more predicted for the weekend it was nice to be reminded that Spring will eventually be here.


  12. Penny Meade says:

    Ann, This is beautiful, thank you for sharing ❤️????

  13. Love this wreath! And love your blog’s new look!

  14. As always, what you did with the wreath was simple and beautiful! As a gardener, the greenery does add value – more texture! Thanks for brightening our day!

  15. HI Ann,
    Just wondering when the valentine printable will be mailed. I wanted to decorate my dad’s room at the nursing home. Thought they would cheer him up.
    Thanks so much!

    1. Ann Drake says:

      Hi Marilyn,
      I included it in the monthly newsletter I sent on January 29th. If you didn’t get it please let me know!

  16. Love it! The greenery peeking out is what caught my eye first. I think it takes your wreath a step up from all the other ones out there!

  17. Sheila DelCharco says:

    I do not hang a wreath on my door because we have a door knocker. Do you have one? Do you just cover it up? Or should I try to place it so that the knocker is in the middle?

    1. Ann Drake says:

      Hi Sheila,
      I don’t have a door knocker…but if you could place the wreath so the door knocker is in the middle I think that would be perfect. Good luck!

      1. Sheila DelCharco says:

        Thanks for your tip! I’ll give it a try!

  18. This wreath looks so fresh and welcoming. I love the size. I think it makes a statement!

  19. We are in the midst of a blizzard. I loved your post and will definitely try my hand at creating this wreath. Thanks. I feel Spring is on it’s way despite the snow and cold.

  20. MARY-ANN (FROM CANADA!) says:

    Ann, your tulip wreath is just so beautiful! I am definitely going to make one for our door.

    Right now, we look out on snowbanks and a frozen lake! The only living things we have on our yard are the deer! There is a long needle pine wreath with pine cones which I made and hung on our door last November! It will be nice to replace this with one of the lovely tulip wreaths once the snow starts to melt!

    Thanks, Ann, for all your great craft ideas!


  21. Sandy Thornton says:

    This is so beautiful!!! I have everything already that I need to make it and I can’t wait to get started!!! Thank you so much for the great tutorial!!!

  22. I am loving this wreath project and can’t wait to try it.

  23. Thank you… Absolutely lovely!

  24. Rose Marie says:

    Just beautiful i am inspired to try it thanks

  25. Lovely. Are you sticking each stem into the wreath to hold them in place? no glue etc?

    1. No glue or wire needed if you use a grapevine wreath for the base. Just stick the stems in! Have fun!

  26. Hi Ann
    Love the Tulip wreath . Nice to see a bit of spring during these dull deary winter days. The colours are great on your blue door. If we could only DIY some sunshine .
    Looking forward to your next post.

  27. Karen Velez says:

    Lovely I just might try this

  28. STUNNING! I would like to have seen a pix somewhere in the middle of the project because I am having a little bit of difficulty picturing just how to stick in the small bunches to get that fullness.

    1. Ann Drake says:

      Actually you need to stick the tulip stems into the grapevine one at a time. That’s the only way you will get it to fill out. I hope this helps!

  29. I think I will try it! But for now, for me, I don’t want to rush these cozy, curl- up- in-a-chair, wintry days for reading and knitting and a little TV binge watching. Thanks for keeping ahead of the game, Ann!

  30. You state that you could make this wreath for $40, but the link you provided shows that 10 bunches of tulips would cost $80 alone before all the other supplies.

    1. The tulip bunches were 50% off. I should have said that. I’m sorry!

  31. Peggy Sanders says:

    I Love it Ann. So bright, cherry and welcoming.
    I am going to make one this weekend.
    Thanks for the inspiration and look forward to more from you. Love your site.
    Have a blessed week-end.

  32. Looks great!!! Can’t wait to try it this weekend.

  33. Sue Knight says:

    This is so pretty! I’m going to give it a try this weekend. I think the greenery adds a bit of a finished look to the wreath overall.

  34. Hi Ann, your tulip wreath is beautiful! Love, love your ideas.

  35. Elizabeth Bender says:

    WOW! Beautiful Ann … thank you …. can’t wait to try my hand at putting one together. However, not today for sure. We are experiencing a heavy duty snow storm up north, an hour out of Manhattan.

  36. Nancy McIntosh says:

    Beautiful! And it looks like it is easy enough for me to make – an added bonus! Thanks you for sharing this and all your wonderful crafts with us.

  37. How beautiful Ann, thanks for the smile this morning. Blessings ????????

  38. Marlene Stephenson says:

    Good way to have spring, even if its cold outside. Thanks Ann.

  39. June Estep says:

    I think it is lovely. In fact, I think I will paint a tulip wreath .

  40. So pretty and hopeful to look at while the predicted foot of snow starts to fall! Thank you.

  41. Beautiful,I love tulips and have been thinking of making one.

  42. Kimberly Ward says:

    Lovely :O) What a beautiful wreath – will definitely be watching for the tulips to go on sale. Ann, did you hot glue the tulips onto the grapevine wreath, or wrap each one successively with floral wire?

  43. Ann, this is a beautiful wreath; it shouts ‘”SPRING'”!!!! I really like the greenery, it’s subtle but a nice added touch. Tulips really are the most popular spring flower and when we see them it makes us realize ‘IT’S ALMOST HERE’ and that’s a great feeling. I’m enjoying your posts, so glad I signed up. Thank you.

  44. Love it!!! -31C with windchill here on the prairies of Canada!

    Brightened my day and made me remember the 50 daffodills I hid from the squirrels last fall.
    (Used chickenwire and irish spring soap!)

  45. Mary Warren says:

    Your tulip wreath is absolutely stunning. It inspires me to create one as well for a welcome to spring. It also made me think that you could probably also do this with crocuses to greet early spring.

  46. Debbie R. says:

    I am definitely going to make this wreath! Beautiful!

  47. I love this! Tulips do sing Spring!

  48. Sandi Brooks says:

    Your tulip wreath turned out beautifully. I love to make my own wreaths also as it is much less expensive than purchasing one already made. You also get to pick and choose what flowers to use, what colors, etc. and nothing feels better than standing back and admiring ‘your’ creation. I use lots of ‘spanish moss’ in my wreaths. They look beautiful and also, the birds love to pull pieces of the moss to add to their nests; I’m fine with that. :)

  49. Absolutely beautiful!!!!!!!!!!!!

  50. Diania Abernathy says:

    Ann…its absolutely lovely. I made one with peony blossoms for Valentines Day recently, but I do love the tulips. Have I missed the printable for Valentines Day? I’ve been waiting for the Be Mine banner. Can’t wait! Thank you….for inspiring me to create beauty for my life and home.

  51. Love your blog, it always inpires me!! Thanks for your creativity and sharing with others!

  52. Your wreath is beautiful. The first thing I noticed was the greenery; it adds just the right touch!

  53. Kristine Puzel says:

    This is a beautiful wreath – thank you for the clear and easy instructions !

  54. Hi Ann,

    I love this tulip wreath! I was at HL yesterday, but I’m going back today to buy some tulips! I’m so ready for spring & looking forward to your next post.


  55. Rebecca Silverstone says:

    Ooooh, it’s not too big, it’s PERFECT!

  56. Beautiful. I am going to make one. Like you I have admired them for a while. Thanks for the directions. I so enjoy your posts. Thank you for all the inspiration.

  57. Amy Chslmers says:

    I love this wreath in the two colors! I’m inspired to make my own,

  58. This is gorgeous! I have a blank grapevine wreath in the basement and now I need to go tulip shopping. Nice to start thinking about warmer days while there is snow on the ground. This would be a fun project to work on now to have ready to hang on the door come spring.

  59. Susan McCoy says:

    Love this quick but beautiful wreath. Thanks for the inspiration!

  60. Ann, Sitting here while a snowstorm rages outside, this DIY tulip project makes me smile! Can’t wait
    to see Spring flowers.

    1. Rebecca Silverstone says:

      Ha Ha, I’m in a snowstorm too, trying to contemplate if I an get to Michaels :)

  61. I love it! It is 13 degrees here this morning and there is snow on the ground…having been nearly 60 degrees 2 days ago! So I definitely need spring encouragement! Your photos are excellent and clearly instructive. I also appreciate your specific directions and reference to cost. I might make one as a Valentines gift! Thanks so much!

  62. Hi Anne,
    The tulip wreath is a knock-out! I love the colors you used, and I do think the greenery adds to it! Just a question. You said you used 10 bunches of tulips. They are $7.99 at Hobby Lobby. The coupon of 40% off is only good for 1 bunch. How did you do this for $40 when purchasing 10 bunches? Thanks! I want to make this, but I don’t want to spend that much money. $40 sounds reasonable to me.

    1. Ann Drake says:

      I bought the tulips when the flower bunches were 50% off. That’s the only way you could do it. Just watch the ad and if they aren’t on sale now, they will be soon. Enjoy!

  63. Marjorie Dineen says:

    Your wreath is just beautiful!

  64. Marcia benjamin says:

    Good morning Ann. I so enjoy reading your beautiful ideas for decorating. Love this tulip wreath and looking forward to making it for my Spring front porch decor. You’re the best.

  65. Love it. Nothing like Springtime.

  66. Shirley Glines says:

    Thank you, Ann. How nice to be thinking about making this pretty spring wreath on this day of a snowstorm! Like Gloria said, I have had a forsythia wreath for the last couple of years, but out it goes and I’ll be sure to be picking up some tulip stems as they go on sale at Michael’s or Jo-Ann Fabrics. Many thanks for sharing your wonderful ideas!

  67. Pam Sparrow says:

    Beautiful , beautiful tulip wreath. Wow , a breath of spring even while it is snowing like crazy
    in the Northeast !!
    Thanks for the info……….and the beauty boost !

  68. Paula Feasel says:

    I love it, love the two colors and makes you feel like spring is already here! Thanks for sharing!

  69. Gloria Loughheed says:

    Thank you, this is just the motivation I’ve been looking for. Your tulip wreath is a very refreshing look for Spring as I usually do a yellow forsythia version which I didn’t feel like doing this year. Freshly cut or potted tulips around my house are my favorite mid-Winter escape to get me through to Easter so making the tulip wreath is just the ticket! Thanks again.

    Gloria Loughheed

  70. Kathleen G says:

    A beautiful Tulip wreath to welcome Spring! Kathleen in Az

  71. Terri Herman says:

    Love, love, love! & pinned!

  72. Irene Kimball says:

    Good Morning, Ann,
    This spring tulip wreath was just what the doctor ordered to bring some cheer and hope for an early spring. We have overcast, gray skies and school closings as we await another winter storm. I love the simplicity of your wreath and, of course, its happy colors.

  73. Denise Harmon says:

    Thank you so much!!!
    After months of wet dreary weather, I am so ready for spring and this is a perfect project for me!

  74. Trisha Flaherty says:

    very pretty!

  75. BEAUTIFUL!!! Tulips are one of my FAVORITE springtime flowers. they way they droop and bend over the side of a round vase – oh it just is spectacular. I will for sure be trying this wreath – it just sings spring!
