Spring Tulip Wreath diy  From the Family With Love

I finally got around to a project I’ve had pinned for years…a Spring Tulip Wreath diy! I’m so excited with how easy it was and honestly how quick it was to complete.  I friend of mine on Facebook recently completed her own wreath and that ended up being the final bit of inspiration I needed!

My total wreath ended up costing me $29.65. Not bad for a 22″ oval wreath! I actually found my grapevine wreath at my local Goodwill for $1.99…and it ended up being the color of the week so final cost was $1!

My $1 Goodwill wreath

 Was so worth yanking out some hidious colorful flowers to save some money on the part of my wreath that would never been seen.

After yanking out the flowers…looks good as new!

 I forgot to take a picture of all my bunches of tulips prior to cutting them up. I purchased the Ashland Spring Bushes from Michaels.  I chose a bright pink, medium pink and “white” (ends up being more ivory). But you should see the colors! Coral, lime, red, orange, yellow…possibilities are endless!

Pink tulips are still whole bunches, ivory tulips have been cut into smaller bunches with wire cutters

 I used wire cutters to cut up the bunches into smaller stems of 3 tulip bunches.  I got 7 mini bunches per large bunch I bought. Once I had everything cut up I was ready to assemble!

Lots and lots of bunches! This is only 3 of the 18 I purchased

 Now comes the fun part…tucking and gluing. I would tuck the stem of each little bunch into the grapevine wreath then apply a dab of hot glue to where I had tucked the stem. Literally continue to tuck and glue until you’ve covered the grapevine wreath.

 The wreath I purchased from Goodwill had a pipe cleaner attached to the back so I could hang it on my door.  I love this idea as it wasn’t sharp and won’t scratch up my door!

What a great little pipe cleaner trick for hanging your wreath!

 


Spring Tulip Wreath From the Family With Love

Supplies (for a 20″ oval wreath):

1 – 18″ Grapevine Wreath
(can use any shape!): $1 Goodwill

18 bunches of tulips (I purchased Ashland Spring Bushes from Michaels): $28.65 ($3.99/bunch with 50% off all flowers and an additional 20% off entire purchase)

Hot Glue Gun

Hot Glue Sticks (I used about 9 or 10)

wire cutters

pipe cleaner to hang

What I did:

Cut the bunches from the store into individual stems. Each stem still had 3 tulips on them…some also had a leaf or two.

Tuck one of your stems into your grapvine wreath and apply a dot of hot glue to where the stem touches the grapevine wreath.

Continue tucking and gluing making sure you you vary the colors.  I would take a step back every now and again to make sure I wasn’t create a stripe of a certain color or too big of a patch of a certain color. 

When complete take a look at your wreath and tweak where needed by adding remainder of bunches.

Turn it over and twist on a pipe cleaner to hang!

    Hi Jen! I just found your blog through Living Well, Spending Less. I saw the wreath and thought “wow, that looks exactly like Jen’s wreath” – lol. I love how it turned out. I’ve had that wreath pinned forever too, and now I think you’ve inspired me to finally do it! Can’t wait to see what else you’re up to!

    Jennifer, that is absolutely gorgeous! This might be just what was needed to motivate me to bring my hot glue gun out of retirement. And I love that pipe cleaner hanger — an idea I’m sure to put to use for many things.
