Spring is closer than you probably realize. I’ve started placing some spring decor around my home and it feels so good to change things up. Are you yearning for a unique and affordable way to welcome the season? Well look no further, because I have the perfect DIY tulip wreath that’s blooming with color! With my easy-to-follow guide I’ll have you creating your own masterpiece in no time!

Simple Elegance: A No-Glue DIY Tulip Wreath for Spring

I change my wreath’s out seasonally. How about you? I have three exterior doors that I adorn with wreaths, so it can get expensive keeping my doors decorated, each season. That’s why it is important for me to be wise with the purchases I make and creating my own DIY wreath helps saves me money.

Supply Gathering: What You’ll Need to Get Blooming

Like I said earlier, creating DIY wreaths help save money from season to season. Repurposing some of my old wreaths, gives new life to them and allows me to reuse the same frames for new inspired wreaths. If I can avoid using hot glue I will. It makes my job easier when dissembling my wreaths.


”Tulips are the smile of the garden.” — Ralph Waldo Emerson

For this wreath, I used a large grapevine wreath that I previously used for Christmas. So a frame was not required. Below is a list of the other supplies I used for this wreath.

  • Floral wire
  • Wire cutters
  • Faux tulips (2 bunches)
  • Wide roll of pink wired edged ribbon
  • One roll of plaid pink and white ribbon
  • Large grape vine wreath

Tulip Time: Selecting and Preparing Your Flowers

While I adore the springtime charm of pink hues, feel free to use any tulip color that inspires you for this DIY project. I realize everyone has a personal preference. Faux tulips are readily available at both craft stores and, sometimes, even dollar stores.

I disassembled two bundles of flowers. I utilized Big Al’s wire cutters to take them apart, leaving some of the greenery on a few of the stems.

Putting it All Together: Step-by-Step Assembly

No glue was used for this project. Instead I chose to weave the flowers into the wreath. Weaving faux flowers into a grapevine wreath without glue requires a bit of creativity and patience. Start by choosing flowers with flexible stems. Gently bend the stem at an angle and carefully insert it into the gaps and crevices of the grapevine. Try to tuck the stem as deep as possible to secure it. Continue weaving the flowers in this way, working your way up each side of the wreath.

This technique creates a beautiful and reusable wreath without the mess or permanence of hot glue.

Double the Delight: Creating a Stunning Two-Ribbon Bow

Whether I am wrapping a gift, making bows for the holidays, or creating a beautiful bow for a DIY project, it is always one of my favorite things to make. There are so many amazing choices when it comes to ribbons. Because they can be pricey, I try to buy mine on sale or sometimes I find them at the dollar store. Ribbons are a wonderful addition to so many projects. Therefore, it’s my opinion, you can never have too many spools of ribbon on hand!

I gathered my large ribbon first and began to loop and fold until I got the right size. I tied the center off with a longer piece of the bright pink ribbon. Then I created my smaller ribbon, adding it to the center.

I attached the ribbon to the bottom center of the grapevine wreath. I did so by slipping floral wire through the backside of the ribbon knot. Once the ribbon is in place your DIY spring tulip wreath is complete!
