Years ago I spotted this tulip wreath on Etsy.
It’s super cute but it was also $90 dollars and there was no way on earth that I was going to pay that so I set about creating my own for a fraction of the cost.
I have had this wreath for 3 years now and it is still holding up quite well.
Many people have asked me how I made it so I am sharing it with you today.
You will need:
1 Foam wreath
1 roll of white 2 inch ribbon (get it in the sale bin because no one will see it)
Several bunches of fake tulips in what ever colours you like
I have recently seen other tutorials on making a wreath like this and a lot of people seem to get their tulips at the dollar store. I got mine at Michaels when they were 60% off. The tulips at the dollar store were not very attractive.
Here is how you make it:
Wrap the ribbon around the wreath slightly over lapping. Don’t make it too tight or you won’t be able to tuck your flowers into it.
Hot glue the end of your ribbon to the wreath
Cut the ends off your tulips. I left 4 inches of stem
Begin tucking your flowers into the ribbon. Use one colour at a time and alternate their placement from left to right. Use the floral wire if needed to make sure that your tulips are tight to the wreath, or you can hot glue your flowers if you are happy with the placement.
Place your other tulips into the ribbon using the same alternating pattern.
Fill in any blank spots with the remaining tulips.
Wrap a few inches of floral wire around the top of your wreath. Careful not to cover the tops of the tulips. Make a small loop so you will be able to hang it off a hook or nail on your door or wall.
So pretty and so easy.
Total cost…$31.00. Much better than $90!
I have had many compliments on this wreath over the years. Most people can’t believe that it is home made.
You can use other flowers too. I think it would look amazing with hydrangeas, lavender or even roses.
