Before I finish blogging about my trip to the Netherlands, I thought I’d pop in here quickly with a bit of Spring “How to make a Tulip Wreath” Project.
Sadly I had to settle for fake tulips as real ones would not last more than a day, but it made for a quick and fun project.
This wreath is quite simple to make; all you need to do is glue some silk tulips to a grapevine wreath form. I added a bit of burlap ribbon to my wreath, but you can use any ribbon that you like if burlap is not your style!
Can this Wreath be Used Outdoors?
I have a covered porch, and my wreath has always been fine outdoors. However, if you do not have a covered porch, I would not recommend placing this wreath outside.
How to Make a Tulip Wreath
- Grapevine Wreath
- Approx 20 tulip stems- I found mine ½ off at a local craft store (Dee’s for those of you local) watch for sales they get marked down frequently.
- Wire cutters
- Burlap ribbon in 2 widths (3″ and 1″)
- Floral wire
- Hot glue
How to Make a Wreath Bow out of Burlap Ribbon
I think it’s easiest to begin by making the bow, attaching it, and arranging the flowers around it.
To make the bow, fold the ribbon over itself twice. You are then using floral wire pinch the middle to shape it. Repeat this step so that you have a ribbon with four loops.
Do the same thing for the 1″ wide ribbon. Attach the smaller bow to the top of the larger bow.
Place the completed bow onto the wreath using floral wire. Don’t glue it down yet.
How to add Tulips to the Grapevine Wreath
Using wire cutters, cut a few tulips stems down. Ju t cut a few at a time, place them on the wreath, then cut a few more. I ut mine all to varying lengths.
Attach a few of the tulips to the grapevine wreath using hot glue. Begin by clustering them around the bow. Tuc them under the bow and glue in place. Leave the leaves on a few of the tulip stems.
Move around the wreath gluing on tulips as you go.
After you’ve placed about eight tulips, start putting tulips on the other side of the bow and working in the opposite direction. Place bout eight more tulips.
With your remaining tulips, fill in the gaps in the wreath. Hot glue all of the tulips down again when you have the wreath looking like you want (the stems will be poking into the grapevine wreath and should glue down easily).
To complete the wreath, take some of your 1″ wide burlap ribbons and loosely wrap them around the wreath, tucking the ends into the bow.
