I made this tulip wreath a couple of years ago after seeing the idea on etsy. I went to Michaels where the floral department was on sale for 50% and I had a coupon to make this Spring Tulip Wreath for only $14!
- 24″ Grapevine wreath
- 2 bushes of Tulips (I had bought 3 in case)
- Green Floral Wire
- Wire cutters
I started by taking apart the tulip bushes. The first bunch came apart really easily by just pulling the bottom of the stem from the connection. I did have a hard time taking apart the second bunch until I realized that there was glue where the blossom met the stem. You can see the wire in the picture below, if you don’t get that wire out of the middle of the stem than your tulip will be harder to work with when you’re putting them into the grapevine wreath.
After I separated the tulips I started to weave them in between the grapevine wreath. I chose to have them all go in one direction. While I attached each tulip if I felt that it wasn’t sturdy enough within the grapevine I used the green floral wire to secure it to the wreath.
Once I had the whole wreath covered I stood back and looked at the wreath to see where I wanted to add more tulips for fill.
And here is my finished wreath! I absolutely love how it came out! And the project was so easy!
The best part of this wreath is that you can use whatever flower you would like! What type of flower would you use?
