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.
