Love floral arrangements to decorate your front door? With spring comes the beauty of all things floral. Tulips are one of the most popular in the springtime. Enjoy making a handmade tulip wreath to brighten your door!
Handmade tulip wreaths are super simple and easy to make. You just need a few items to make these spring wreaths to decorate your door. To demonstrate how to make this tulip wreath we asked our friend to share with y’all!
How to Make a Handmade Tulip Wreath
Today, we have a guest designer, Lauren Kilgore, owner of BeautifulMesh. A little about Lauren is that she’s an accountant by day and crafter by night. She has a successful Etsy shop and also teaches other creatives how to open their own Etsy shops and how to optimize it for more views and sales.
In this video tutorial, she’ll be teaching how to make a handmade tulip wreath. Tulip wreaths are really popular with customers in spring and summer! But she has sold them all year long in different color patterns. You can find many of the ones Lauren has made in her Etsy shop.
Just a note, you don’t have to use Styrofoam wreath bases. You can also use other bases such as straw or grapevine. Depending on the wreath base and on the size, you may need more or less tulips. For example, a grapevine wreath usually uses less tulips. Lauren likes the 12″ size, because then the hole in the middle is more filled in, but these wreaths look pretty at almost any size!
Dress up your front door with a lovely tulip wreath. This floral wreath is really not hard to make, but does take a couple of hours from start to finish. This is my first tulip wreath diy, but won’t be my last. I love the vibrant all-red tulips wreath. Next time, I plan to try a mixture of pink and white tulips.
What You’ll Need:
- A grapevine wreath (any size)
- Several miniature tulip stems (The number of tulip stems you need depends on the size of your wreath. You will want to have enough tulips to completely cover the wreath. *Tip: Bring the wreath into the store and arrange the stems on top of it to get a better estimate of how many you need to buy.)
- Floral Wire
- Ribbon (for hanging)
How To Make It:
- My tulip stems had 3 “shoots” of tulips on every stem. I used scissors to cut each “shoot” from the main stem. Be sure to include the green leaves with the tulips and don’t throw away any extra greenery – you can add that to the wreath once you are finished.
- Cut about a 6 inch piece of floral wire and wrap it around the end of one of the tulip stems several times until secure. Be sure to leave 2-3 inches of floral wire at the bottom of the stem. If you want extra security, you can use floral tape to tape the wire to the stem – I skipped this step.
- Place the tulip stem on the wreath where you want to secure it. Thread the base of the tulip stem (along with the 2-3 inches of floral wire) into the grapevine and wrap the 2-3 inches of wire around and around the grapevine until it is secured.
- Place the next tulip stem on the wreath where it will be close to but not on top of the previous stem. You want to place the tulip stems close together so there aren’t any gaps in coverage as you continue to go around the wreath. You may need to place some stems side by side to achieve this effect.
- Continue placing and securing tulip stems onto the wreath until you have gone all the way around it. *Important: Make sure the tulip stems are all turned in the same direction.
- Take a look at your wreath and see if there are any gaps that need to be filled in with tulips or greenery from the stems. My tulip stems had sprigs of greenery that I wired and added in to the wreath.
- Weave a length of ribbon onto the back of your wreath for hanging.
Enjoy your beautiful tulip wreath! Tulips are a great choice for spring wreaths and summer wreaths.
Please let me know if you have any questions about how to make a tulip wreath. Sometimes the directions make sense to me writing them, but not to the person reading them. I’m happy to help out if you leave a comment with your question below.
If you recall, last year I added a new paint color to the front door. It is the perfect color for Spring and Summer. Surprisingly this shade of blue also works well for Autumn and Winter. Since tulips are currently blooming in the bulb garden, it seems appropriate to hang a tulip wreath on the front door. Join me today to make a tulip wreath. To see the front door color post for details, click here.
Michael’s is having a great sale on faux flowers and I scored 4 bunches of pink tulips for less than $20.00. See here. Initially the goal is to make an all pale pink wreath.
The challenge with our front door is that it is 48″ wide. Standard-sized wreaths tend to look a little dinky. So when I do create a wreath, abundance is the key. Naturally I did this DIY project out of order. It would make the most sense to start with your wreath frame and then determine the quantity of flowers you need. However, I didn’t want to buy another wreath frame and did some digging in the garage to find this 26″ grapevine one…..after I purchased the pale pink tulips.
Supplies you need are simple: a wreath frame, flowers, glue gun and something to cut the flowers. For a nice selection of grapevine wreaths, click here.
Realizing that I may not have enough pink tulips to fill the wreath frame, I find some darker pink tulips that I had on hand from another project. With 4 bunches of light pink (14 stems each) and 2 bunches of dark pink (also 14 stems each), I have a total of 84 tulips. Before I start a project I want to make sure I do not run out of materials. Been there. Done that.
Having wire cutters makes this job a lot easier to get through the plastic covering and the wire underneath. These are super affordable and you can order them through Amazon here.
I start working on 1/4 of the wreath, knowing I can use 21 stems in that portion. This gives me a sense of what density of flowers will work. Most stems tuck easily and securely in between the grapevines.
Don’t discard the leaves as they can be added to the wreath for fullness or just another pop of color. I hot glue the leaves randomly. Personally, I really don’t like using a glue gun because I tend to burn myself far too much. On this wreath, I use minimal gluing.
As I am styling it, darker tulips are added for contrast. If you follow me on Instagram, I try to post a story daily and show these types of DIY projects in action.
Continuing to add tulips around the entire wreath, I leave a space for a ribbon. Using the leftover bow from Valentine’s Day, I find that I don’t like it. The pink in the ribbon looks a little flat to me.
Instead, I remove the bow and continue adding more tulips to fill in the gap. Much better!
So here is the finished tulip wreath! I think it looks so cheerful on the front door.
Since the wreath looks so nice, the rest of the porch looks a bit tired. Join me tomorrow to see how I spruced up the front porch to go with my new wreath!
Happy Tuesday! Spring has sprung and hopefully, everyone’s weather is improving. We are, of course, in the midst of our beautiful season so every day seems better than the one before.

How do you make a tulip wreath with a wire frame?
- Start by hot gluing your ribbon around your wire wreath.
- Cut the end of the ribbon off and hot glue it to the back of the wreath.
- Stick your tulips underneath the ribbon and hot glue under the bundle.
- Count every 3 or 4 ribbon wraps and stick another bundle of tulips.
How do you attach flowers to a wreath?
To start, just grab one flower stem and gently push it through the wreath. You’ll see the other end poke through the back. Wrap the end of the wire around the sticks of the wreath to secure in place. Repeat.
How do you make a tulip carrot wreath?
- Cut the faux tulips from the original stem.
- Gather three flowers and wrap them together with wire.
- Add three flowers next, one tier up and secure with wire.
- Keep adding 4-5 flowers per tier.
- Fan flowers out to create width that guides it to look more like a carrot.
- Next, add your carrot top!
How many tulips do I need to make a tulip wreath?
To cover an 18-inch wreath, you’ll need about 20 bunches of mini tulips ($16, Amazon). We purchased our faux tulips, which came in pre-bundled bunches, at a crafts store.
How do you attach a greenery to a wreath?
Start the wreath by taking a few different boughs of greenery and bunching them together at the base of the branch. Take the bundle, and place it against the wreath form. Use your floral wire to wrap around both the bundle and the form a few times, until it feels secure. Do NOT clip the wire when you are finished.

How to add a touch of spring to the front door with this easy tulip wreath DIY.
Spring has definitely sprung here at the cottage (inside anyway) and it all starts at the front door with this pretty DIY tulip wreath.
I usually hang a basket on the front door and add some flowers to it. This spring I wanted something different so I went with a big pink tulip wreath.
Yes. lots of pink. It’s not my usual color palette, that’s for sure, but there’s no denying that it screams spring.
I’m loving it on my new farmhouse style front door. It’s the perfect spring welcoming touch.

Cost is a factor in every project I do and this one was no different.
I knew that I would need a fair amount of tulips to make the wreath look full so I waited for a sale before I pulled the trigger.
It ended up taking 13 bunches and I was able to snag them for $2 a bunch. The burlap ribbon, that I found at the Dollar Store, was another steal at just $1 a piece.
For the wreath form I chose wrapped straw, thinking it would be the easiest to work with, and easiest to stick my flowers in.
How do you make a tulip wreath?
I knew what I wanted my finished wreath to look like but I had no clue if it was going to work.
The idea was to wrap the wreath form with the ribbon so I could stick the stems in the seams and have them stay in place.
No glue necessary!
Through a bit of trial and error, I learned that the ribbon should be wrapped on the loose side.
Not loose enough that it would move around, but loose enough so that you can stick the stems in the seams.
Next, I cut off each stem from the main one using my wire cutters.
I tried to keep each stem fairly long in the hopes that they would have a better chance of staying in place.
As far as placing the faux flowers, my plan was to use the dark pink and add the light pink in a few spots here and there. I ran out of dark pink flowers pretty quickly so I resorted to Plan B.
Yeah, not a real plan.
I just ended up eyeballing it and spread the light and dark around until it looked good.
Adding the stems was so simple.
I just worked my way around, pushing each stem into the seams of the ribbon. Some of the stems ended up going through the plastic wrapping of the wreath form, which was added security.
I didn’t worry about each one going all the way through, though. As long as each flower stem was all the way in the seam, they were good to go.
That’s it. easy peasy.
A little fluffing and she was ready to hang on our new front door.
I asked the hubs what he though about my spring tulip wreath.

- Start by wrapping the ribbon around the wreath form, covering every spot of the form. To secure the ribbon you can use floral pins at the beginning and the end of your ribbon or use a small amount of hot glue.
- Remove any tags from your tulips. Using your wire cutter, separate the tulips from their common plastic stem base so you will end up with smaller bunches/stems of tulips.
- Place a small bundle of tulip 3- 4 tulip stems sidewise on your wreath, so both the flowers and the stem are touching the wreath. Use a flower pin to secure it. Continue in the same direction, adding bundles next to each other until you have covered the entire wreath. You don’t need to cover the back of the wreath.
- If you find any gaps or unfilled areas, tuck in a few stems of tulips. You can secure them if necessary with floral pins.
- To make a hook for hanging you can use a pipe cleaner or a piece of ribbon that you tie into a loop and secure to the back of the wreath using a floral pin.

- If your tulips come in a bunch, snip into individual stems using wire snippers. Be sure to leave the stems nice and long. Push any of the greenery up towards the bloom of the tulip. We used these light pink tulips, and these cream and green tulips.
- Starting with one pink stem and one white stem, place them in a criss-cross manner onto your wreath form.
- Use ribbon or yarn to wrap around and secure the stems in place.
- Take the next pair of tulip stems and position them to cover over the first two stems you put in place. Make sure that they are generally pointing in the same direction and that there is an overhang on the outer edge of the wreath.
EXPERTTIPThe more the tulips hang past the outer edge, the larger the wreath will be in the end.
