It’s hard to believe that spring has sprung and tomorrow is May… but we’re not complaining! April showers bring May flowers, so today we’re sharing a super easy DIY to start to bring those flowers into your home. Bright, fun wreaths are a simple way to incorporate that color and give your home an extra, welcoming pop of color. Part of why we love this wreath is that you can leave it up throughout the spring and summer months, and we love a versatile piece of decor made on a budget! This whole project cost a grand total of $13, how can you say no to that? Make sure you check for coupons before you head to your craft store, they always have sales going on!

What You’ll Need:

  • 2 tulip bunches in your desired color(s)
  • 18 inch grapevine wreath
  • Garden scissors or wire cutters
  • Hot glue gun
  • Garden wire (optional)

How to Assemble:

  1. Deconstruct your tulip bunches so you have a bunch of individual stems. Make sure to cut decent length stems as we’ll be tucking them into the wreath.
  2. While your hot glue gun warms up, start placing your tulip stems around the outer half of your wreath to test out spacing and placement.
  3. Once you have decided where you want your stems to be, start securing them in place with hot glue. If you’re worried you’re going to change your mind on placement, instead wrap each stem with garden wire to secure. Or, use a combination for extra tight security.
  4. Once your stems are all secured and in place, hang your wreath and enjoy! How simple was that?!
