- 14″ grapevine wreath
- St Patrick’s Day sign
- Ficus leave stems
- Green mini tulip bush
- Cream mini tulip bush
- Short bladed grass bush
- 2 1/2″ wired burlap ribbon
- 1 1/2″ green plaid or shamrock ribbon (I found several ribbon options here)
- 1 1/2″ lime green ribbon
- 1 1/2″ green polka dot ribbon
- 1 1/2″ burlap ribbon (optional)
- Pipe cleaners, hot glue, scissors, floral picks +/- floral tape, wire cutters
- First, decide where you want your sign to hang and attach to the grapevine wreath. To attach, you will need to staple pipe cleaners to at least three areas. Need more help on attaching signs to a wreath? You will find this blog post to be helpful.
- Next, place the ficus leaves for a backdrop to your florals. The greenery should project from the wreath to establish the outline for the tulips. If your are not comfortable gluing as you go, you can put the stems in the grapevine then go back to glue once happy with the placement.
- Now, make and place the bow. I usually wait to cut the tails to length until I am a ways into the design. You can curl and get out of your way if needed. I have several blog posts if you need help with bow making. This is my most popular here.
- Start placing the tulips. I like to start at the bow and work outward, adding one to each side of the bow at a time to make evenly placed. Add the green tulips first, then the cream to help see areas that needed the green broken up.
- I then come back and add the other greenery, filling in holes as I go.
- If you haven’t trimmed the bow tails yet, now is the time. Next, show off your finished design!!
