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.

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!
