How to make a diy tulip wreath
Do you love tulips? I sure do and this DIY Tulip Wreath makes me quite happy.
Tulips are one of my all time favorite flowers. I love them. They remind me of spring/early summer and all the family times on the front porch. Sipping sweet tea and watching our kiddos run around bare foot. I had been wanting to make a DIY Tulip Wreath for the front door for quite some time, but I wasn’t really sure how.
Pinterest shows Tulip Wreaths all the time, but how did they make them?
I really wanted one though, so I figured I’d take a chance when I stumbled across all of the supplies to make this DIY Tulip Wreath at the dollar store. The entire wreath was less then $12. And you won’t believe how EASY it was to make a DIY Tulip Wreath.

How to Make a DIY Tulip Wreath
Gather your supplies and get ready to start creating your perfect DIY Tulip Wreath.
Start with your foam circle wreath
Take your foam circle wreath and wrap it in ribbon of choice. Be sure to wrap evenly as this will space out your tulips in the arrangement.
Add a very small amount of glue at the beginning and end of the ribbon to attach to the foam wreath.
Note you will need space between the ribbon to slide in your tulip stems. See next picture below.
Arrange tulips in ribbon on wreath
Note how the ribbon is evenly and semi-tightly wrapped around the wreath.
Cut the faux tulips free from the bundles and slide them under the ribbon into place.
Work all the way around the wreath one section at a time. Make sure to continue to run the tulips in the same direction.
If you would like you can add a dab of hot glue to the end of the tulip stem before sliding them into place under the ribbon for extra attachment and durability.
Continue to fill with wreath all the way around with tulips
Just keep going. Adding more faux tulips all the way around until the entire wreath is full. Try to keep them going the same direction and evenly spaced for a full look.
Add a ribbon loop
Find a spot between the tulips and add a loop of ribbon.
The tulip wreath is fairly light so I added hot glue to attach the ribbon loop.
If it was heavier I may have considered sewing or stitching the ribbon together. Just a thought.
I also added a small loop of twine with hot glue on the back of the ribbon loop so that the ribbon loop looks beautiful, but the twine is there and hooks on whatever (I use a command hook) to hold the tulip wreath on the door correctly while not being visible.
