This wreath has become one of my favorite wreaths. I am looking forward to making several different versions of this spring tulip wreath.
Originally, this was the first time I had ever participated in the Pinterest Challenge. Currently the Pinterest Challenge is not active, but I have still updated this post to share again this year. This wreath is just so pretty when it is finished and is worth sharing again.
The dilemma for me was not finding a great Pinterest Pin project I wanted to recreate, but deciding on which one! There are so many projects and pins I have love to have time to recreate for my own home. So looking around my house, I noticed that the wreath I made for winter was looking a bit weather worn and I immediately knew which wreath pin I wanted to recreate! I decided to try to finally make one of favorite warm weather wreaths I have pinned several times of a Spring Tulip Wreath. #pinterestchallenge

In case you’re new to the challenge, the purpose of the Pinterest Challenge was to motivate all the participants (and you too) to not just pin, but to make it happen!
The inspiration for my project this month was this pin from Kylie @ The How To Mom.
I have probably re-pinned this same blogger’s tulip wreath pin several times just because I just love the fullest and beauty of all those tiny little tulips.
Luckily I shopped for this project right when Michael’s had their door buster sale going on for tulip bunch stems and I was able to score these beauties for only $1.99 each. I wasn’t THAT early to the sale so my selections were limited to the orange and yellows tulips, which are perfect for my house, but I certainly will be trying this beautiful wreath again in many other colors, I like it that much.
The instructions and video on this site made this wreath much easier to make than expected and she did a fabulous job with both the tutorials and details on how to recreate her version of wreath. In the end, the wreath took me about 30 minutes to put together and I love how it came out.
Following her steps, I first cut up each bundle of tulips stems to have multiple small little stems of tulips. Then I attached the end of the ribbon to the foam wreath form and started wrapping the ribbon around the inner edge of the wreath.
Since I am right handed I wrapped the ribbons towards the center and then to the left to create the folds needed to tuck the stems of tulips in. Every few wraps around the wreath form, I would add a drop of hot glue to secure the ribbon in place or the stems.
My version of the Spring Tulip Wreath in White, Yellow, and Orange!
I used 9 bunches of tulips but could have easily used about two more to make this wreath even fuller, but like I mentioned earlier my selections of colors and availability were a bit scarce that day.
And my finished project looks fabulous over my mantel. It will be the starting point for my future Spring mantel display.
