Add some bright colors to your front door when you use flowers to make a Spring Tulip Wreath!
This Spring I’ve decided I really want to bring all the colors of the season into the home. Living in an apartment we can’t paint and the only way we can add color is through furniture and other types of decor, so I’ve challenged myself to add it one room at a time. And while the front door isn’t technically a room, it’s the first thing people see when they get to your house. So the Spring Tulip Wreath was the first colorful craft to get made!
The one thing I really love about our apartment is that the front doors are this beautiful dark blue color. I adore it because it gives me the opportunity to put a lot of color on the door, and the brighter the color the more it pops against the blue. That’s one of the reasons I always go for something bright and fun!
Lately I haven’t been that into making wreaths. I don’t think I’ve had one on our door since last Fall and I can’t say that I was really bothered to make one for it. Which seems crazy since wreaths are one of my favorite things to make. They’re so simple but they make a huge impact if done right. And really, I don’t think you can mess up a wreath!
The one thing I wanted more than anything for a Spring wreath was an orange or pink color for the flowers. When I walked into Michaels I made a beeline for the flowers and began to look for anything pink and orange. I was so happy to find the perfect tulips in the perfect bright shade for the door. And luckily, I got there in time to grab the very last bouquet.
When it comes to making wreaths I have three things I tend to use: a grapevine base, flowers, and a large bow. Sometimes I mix things up or add in new items, but every wreath of mine ends up looking very similar. I’m okay with that, really! I just figure it’s my own signature look.
How to make your own Spring Tulip Wreath
- String (I like jute)
- Wooden pennant banner (found at Michaels)
- Chevron Ribbon
- Blue and White acrylic paint
This Spring Tulip Wreath was really so simple to make, you can do it in four steps (or less if you don’t decide not to do the banner!)
+ Arrange your flowers and tie them to the wreath. I made mine cascade down the side and then cut off the extra stem so it wouldn’t stick out underneath the ribbon.
+ Wrap a piece of ribbon around the wreath and over the stems of the flowers, secure it with hot glue. Then place your ribbon on top of it and hot glue the two pieces together.
+ Paint your wooden pieces and set them aside to let them dry.
+ You can use a stencil for the letters on your wood pieces or freehand it (I used a stencil). Once they’re dry hang them on your wreath with jute string.
Really easy right? I absolutely love this spring tulip wreath and can’t help but smile every time I walk through our front door. It’s so bright and cheery and really pops against that blue. Even Chris commented on it, and he’s usually not overly enthusiastic about pink.
