This tulip wreath is actually really easy to make and it will look great in your spring decor. For me, tulips scream all things spring! When I first see them coming up in gardens, I know that warmer weather is here to stay. Why not take that spring symbol and making something gorgeous for the front door? A wood tulip wreath is definitely the answer! Follow along for this fun and colorful tulip tutorial.
- Unfinished Darice Wood Tulips (12 of them)
- Darice Craft Paint (in green, yellow, pink, aqua, and purple – or colors of your choice)
Start by painting your tulips. I painted the bottoms green first and allowed to dry. Paint the edges as well as the top for a finished look. This may require two coats of paint to get complete coverage.
Then paint three of each tulip the same color. I am using purple, pink, aqua, and yellow. You can use any colors that you would like here. Again, be sure to paint the edges as well as the front. It may require two coats per tulip to get complete coverage. Allow everything to dry completely before continuing.
Now we are going to assemble our tulip wreath. You may want to dry fit everything together before adding glue. We will add two colors on the bottom layer in an alternating arrangement as shown below.
Then add drops of glue where the top layer of tulips will touch the bottom layer.
Place the other two colors of tulips on top of the first layer as shown below. Again, you will want to alternate colors. This time you will want to be sure that each tulip touches the dots of glue you added in the previous step.
Set your tulip wreath aside and allow it to dry completely. Once dry, it is ready to hang on your front door! If needed, you can add a loop of ribbon to the back with hot glue for hanging.
I hope you enjoyed this tulip tutorial. Will you make a cute tulip wreath for your front door this spring? This bright and colorful wreath will welcome visitors all the way through Easter and beyond!
