Spring is my favorite season and tulips are my favorite flower. So, when I found tulips on sale at Hobby Lobby, I knew they would make the perfect spring wreath for my front door.
I made the first spring wreath with yellow tulips and I was so impressed with how it turned out that I snapped this picture and posted it on Facebook.
My friends and family loved it! My mom called later that day to ask if I would make her one too.
This time I decided to take pictures of the process and post them here on the blog so that everyone could make one of these beautiful wreaths.
And the best part is that this spring project cost me less than $15!
How to Make a Spring Wreath
Step 1: Gather Your Supplies
- 2 tulip bushes
- a grapevine wreath form
- hot glue gun & glue sticks
- burlap ribbon
I bought these tulip bushes at Hobby Lobby. Normally, they are $7.99 each, but Hobby Lobby has a constantly rotating sale. Every other week flowers are 50% off. So, I bought both tulip bushes for $7.99.
I also bought the wreath form at Hobby Lobby for $4.99. Everything else I had on hand in my craft cabinet. In total, this wreath only cost me about $13.

Step 2: Remove the Tulip Blooms
The next step is to remove the tulip stems from the bush. This is super easy and there is no cutting necessary. Simply pull the tulip blooms and the stems come right off.
If you buy a different kind of tulip bush that requires cutting, make sure that you leave 3-4 inches of stem on each bloom.
Step 3: Glue Ribbon Around Your Wreath
Cut a piece of burlap ribbon and glue it around the middle of the grapevine wreath form. This marks the spot where you will place the bow once the wreath is finished.

Step 4: Place Tulips on the Wreath
Next, begin placing tulips at the base of the ribbon, but DON’T glue them just yet! Push the stems of the tulips into the wreath form to temporarily hold them in place. Once you have them all arranged the way you like, then you can hot glue them in.
Continue placing the tulips halfway around the wreath. Make sure you bunch the tulips close together without leaving any big gaps in between. Also, the tulips should be facing the same direction.
Step 5: Glue the Stems
Once you have the flowers arranged correctly, remove each stem individually and glue it into place. I put hot glue at the very tip and along the edge of each stem before pushing it into the grapevine wreath.
After you have glued all of the tulips into place, pick up the wreath and give it a little shake to make sure that you didn’t miss any.
Step 6: Add Leaves and a Bow
Once you are done gluing all of the tulip stems into place, fill in any gaps with some of the leaves from the tulip bushes. Like the blooms, the leaves should slide right off.
For my wreath, I filled in a few gaps and also added some leaves to the edge of the tulips for a little more color.
After the gaps are filled, it’s time for the finishing touch…a bow. I chose wired burlap ribbon to make my bow, but you could use any kind you want.
Admittedly, I am not the best bow-maker out there. However, this YouTube video helped me make the bow that you see here. It was super quick and easy – even I couldn’t mess it up!
