DIY Tulip Wreath {Welcome Spring!}

Last week the cold snap that has consumed Northeast Ohio finally snapped! Temperatures were in the forties and on Friday the thermometer even jumped above 50 for a few hours! It is amazing. The birds are singing their joy, the snow is melting into a million little puddles and the sun is shining in all of her beautiful Springtime glory. So, to celebrate the end of this eternal winter, I decided a new wreath for the front door was in order!
 

I have seen tulip wreaths popping up all over Etsy, so that's what I decided to make. This wreath was SO easy to create. Seriously, it took me about half an hour.
 
To get started you'll need:
A grapevine wreath (mine was 18 inches)
Bunches of mini tulips (found mine at Michaels)
Hot Glue Gun
Burlap Ribbon (optional)
 

I chose a variety of colors for my tulips: 2 yellow bunches, 1 white bunch, 1 purple bunch and 2 different colored pink bunches. I love how customizable this wreath is! You can make it any color you'd like. :)

 
Start by cutting the tulips off of the bunches, leaving the stems long. Then simply start placing them around the wreath, spacing them out as needed so that there's a bit of a flow to the design. Next, simply tuck your tulips into the wreath. Feel free to add a big of hot glue to the stems to ensure they stay snugly in place. Then just keep adding tulip stems until the wreath is full. I left a blank spot so that I could add a burlap ribbon to my wreath, but that's not necessary. (Also, grapevine wreaths are MESSY, so I advise doing this project at a larger table, so that you don't make a mess on the floor.)

 
Hang your lovely creation on the door and welcome in Spring! Can you see the snow in this picture? It's not even fazing me.. because I know it's FINALLY going away! Huzzah!
 

Happy Spring, my friends!
