Do you want to know how to make a quick and easy spring wreath? Even though it’s almost summer!
I can’t believe it’s almost summer and I’m just now writing about this pretty spring tulip wreath! Moving is always a busy project time but I need to dedicate more time to writing and sharing all these projects with you! Any suggestions for time management would be greatly appreciated!!!
This tulip wreath project was so easy to make and the techniques could be used for many different occasions. Just change out the flowers!
Get your supplies!
You will need:
- A grapevine wreath – I get mine from thrift stores.
- Wire cutters
This is how I make a bright and cheery spring wreath in just a few minutes! No bows necessary!
Lets get started!
Start by cutting your flowers apart to make them easier to evenly distribute the colors and eliminate clumps of the same colors. I use some basic wire cutters to do this.
Start with the greenery. I used the large greenery in one piece to make it easy and secured it with wire in several places. Just drape the greenery around the wreath attaching where necessary to hold it in place.
It helps to hold your wreath up occasionally to check for placement or better yet, hang it up to work on it. That will give you a more realistic idea of where you need to secure your greenery.
Start adding the flowers by pushing the ends of the stems into the grapevine wreath. I find that many don’t need any further attaching. If some flowers won’t stay where you want them, just secure with short pieces of wire and wrap around a few vines in the wreath.
I start at the top, layering the stems in and then switching direction after filling half of the area I plan to cover.
Make sure to have some stems around the outer and inner edges of the wreath to fill it out.
After you’ve arranged all your flowers.
Check for balance and empty spots. Look at the side of the wreath too! On this type of wreath I think it looks best to have a higher concentration of flowers in the center and then taper the number of blooms as you move up and down the wreath.
And finally, SHAKE HARD!
If nothing falls out you’re finished!
If you do have some stems move or come loose, add some wire so they are more secure.
I don’t use hot glue because in just a few weeks this spring wreath will be dismantled and change into something else. I find that the hot glue is stringy and makes changing out the flowers more difficult.
We found this cute little bird at Dollar Tree while my sister was visiting. I think it’s the perfect whimsical touch!
Plus, I can’t tell you how many times I ‘ve seen live birds come and say hello!
Adding an over the door hanger eliminates the need for nails in your front door and works with a glass storm door. Wow! I can see I need a new one!!
I love this spring wreath on my front door and it only took about 20 minutes to complete.
Until next time,
I shared this post with this Link Party! I hope you’ll visit the party for great inspiration and project ideas!
