Easy DIY Spring Tulip Wreath

Tulip Wreath Tutorial- From My Front Porch To Yours
After the holidays have come and gone I always find myself in a decorating slump and one of the areas that suffers is our porch/front door. Our current wreath is the same wreath I have had up since Christmas but it is an ice skate and well it is still technically winter so I just left it there to Mr. Front Porch's dismay!;) I finally was inspired after viewing some beautiful spring wreaths online. You can view some of my inspirations over on my Wreath Loving Board on Pinterest.

 Here are the supplies you will need to make a Spring Tulip Wreath:
6-7 tulip bundles
3 ft of ribbon
1 grapevine wreath
florist wire
hot glue gun
pliers- slip joint or needle nose will work

I purchased 7 bushels of faux tulips from Michaels. They are normally $3.99 each but were 40% off.

I already owned the grapevine wreath but you can easily find one like this at any local craft store.

This burlap ribbon came from HobbyLobby. It is rather pricey at at $14.99 for 3 yards but when I purchased it it was 50% off. The script fabric is already sewn on. If you do not have a HobbyLobby near by and must have this ribbon you can order it online here.

The only tools you will need for this project are a pair of pliers and a hot glue gun.

The pliers are used to cut each individual stem off the base of the bushel.

You will end up with a bunch of stems.

Next just start shoving the stems in the wreath base where they will fit. I would alternate between the white tulips stems and the pink tulip stems.

Next up I made a bow with the burlap script ribbon. I used a video tutorial by Restore Interiors. Kelli makes it look super easy and guess what it is! Click Here to go to her tutorial. This is where the glue gun comes into play. For the center I just used a small piece of ribbon folded in half and then hot glued it on the back of the bow for a more finished look.

I trimmed the tails of the bow and attached it to the top of my wreath with florist wire.

I then changed my mind and moved it to the side!;)

 This wreath is a quick & simple way to dress up your front door for Spring. It took me less than 20 minutes to make. Now I just need to sand and re-stain our front door so I can hang it up.
