Spring Tulip Wreath Tutorial

Happy New Year, friends! I hope 2016 is off to a great start. I can hardly believe how quickly February is zooooming by. Wasn't yesterday just Christmas?! Crazy talk.

This year I put up our Valentine's decor really early. Like before the New Year early. So of course I got tired of it quickly (crazy holiday lady over here) and I've already started pulling out the Easter decor. We are a month away so I think I can slide??

I decided to make a new Spring wreath for our front door and wanted to share. It is so easy, y'all. I purchased my supplies at Michael's. The tulip bunches were 40% off and I also used an additional 20% off any purchase coupon (grab it online) to bring my grand total for the wreath to a whopping $26 dollars. Praise hands.

Supplies you will need:
  • 1 green foam wreath form 11-13"
  • 1 package of floral pins (the same pins I had left from Jonah's birthday balloon wreath) this only takes about 10-15 pins max. You could also use wire, tape, pipe cleaners... you name it!
  • 11 bunches of tulips (I used a small tulip bunch at $3.99 each)
  • 1 clippers or strong scissors (I used garden clippers after my cute pink scissors weren't strong enough!)
Start by removing the price tags from each bunch of tulips and pushing the "leaves" of the tulip up towards the top of the tulip head. Clip the bottom of the tulip bunch off and pin the entire tulip bunch into your foam form.

Continue around the wreath pinning each bunch to the wreath form until you complete the circle. This was by far the EASIEST wreath I've ever made. And so pretty on the front door!
