A little front porch with nothing on it and a plain white door doesn’t scream welcome to my home. How can you look at tulips and not think of Spring and all the beauty of the season? This Monogram Tulip Wreath is a great way to welcome guests to your home all Spring and even into Summer. The bonus is that it takes less than 30 minutes to make.
Monogram Tulip Wreath supplies:
2 Tulip bunches (Michael’s)
Burlap ribbon (Michael’s)
Hot glue gun
Gather your supplies then let’s get started.
The shape and size of this monogram was exactly what I was looking for but it was a little too close to the color of the wreath. It was easy to fix that by painting around the top of the monogram to help it stand out. You could also paint the whole monogram if you like. I choose white to match the tulips and I like the contrast against the wood.
You don’t even have to tape it off before you paint. What a difference a little paint makes.
These tulips were easy to just pull out of the bunch. If I need to cut them I usually use small wire cutters. There are 14 large tulips in each bunch so 2 bunches are plenty for this wreath. I was also going to use some of the leaves, but decided not to once I had the tulips in place. It just depends on the look you want.
Start a couple inches past center and slide the tulips into gaps in the grapevine wreath. Play around with the placement until you get the look you like. You want the bow to be at about 9 0’clock so keep that in mind as you’re placing the tulips. I didn’t use any adhesive or wire to hold the tulips in place. I like how they’re not perfect but if you want them to be a little more uniform use wire to hold them in place by wrapping it around the tulip and a section of the grapevine.
The Spring wind did move the tulips around a bit so it might be a good idea to secure them.
Now place the tulips in the same way around the bottom of the wreath. I have 15 tulips in the top area and 13 in the bottom area. Trim any stems that are too long. I had to trim 3-4 in the bottom area, you might be able to notice in the photo below.
Wrap a strip of burlap ribbon around the wreath a few times to hide the stems. No need to glue it in place because the next step will take care of that.
Tie more burlap ribbon around the wrapped part and form a bow. This will hold the burlap in place and help hold the center tulips in place.
Hot glue the monogram to the bottom right side of the wreath. You could also wire it in place.
What a perfect wreath for Spring! You could purchase a tulip wreath but unless you find it on sale it’s going to cost a lot more.
