Spring Tulip Wreath

We had several unseasonably warm days this February (which coincidentally were promptly followed by a massive snow storm).  When Michael’s had a 40 percent off sale on bunches of tulips that particular weekend, I knew that I had to create a spring wreath to celebrate!

I started with a cheap grapevine wreath and wrapped a pipe stem cleaner around the top of it to serve as a hanger.

I then snipped all of the purple, white, and yellow tulips (along with their leaves) off of their stems, and began glue-gunning them to the wreath.

And continued this process around the wreath in the same direction, trying to make it appear as full as possible.
That’s it!  One day soon, I need to learn how to make bows.  This will work for now.
The first thing that my husband said when he saw it was, “It’s a LSU wreath.”  We’re not the biggest fans of the LSU Tigers.  I smacked him.

There you have it!  A simple tulip wreath, which is ready for spring.

  1. It's beautiful! Changing out the wreath on my front door is on my to-do list for today, and I was just going to plop the old forsythia thing I've had for years on there, but maybe a quick trip to Hobby Lobby is in order 🙂

  5. Hi Sarah! Tulips are one of my favorites, too, and when I saw them on sale, I knew I had to create something with them. And OF COURSE I'll check out your blog! Funnily enough, I was already a follower. 🙂 Thank you for stopping by!
