  • 12″ Styrofoam Wreath Form, I like the ones that are flat on either side.
  • Several Bushes of Mini Tulips, color(s) of choice. I use mini tulips from Micheals and I usually need 12 bushes
  • 2 1/2″ Wide Satin Non-wired Ribbon in coordinating color. This is about the only time I use non-wired ribbon.
  • Floral pins
  • Hot Glue
  • Scissors
  • Pipe Cleaner, coordinating color
  • Small Piece of Felt or Ribbon
  • Wire Cutter or equivalent to cut tulip stems from bush.


  1. Wrap styrofoam wreath form with ribbon. Secure starting edge of ribbon to wreath with floral pin. Overlap ribbon just at the edges and not too thick so floral pins can easily poke through. 
  2. Cut tulip sections from bush with wire cutters. 
  3. Begin securing tulips to wreath form with floral pins. Place small amount hot glue on the floral pin. Move around the wreath form, adding more tulips, flower heads facing the same direction. Overlap the tulip heads over the green stems of the flower placed before. I usually do the flat side of the form first then move to the inner portion of wreath. I save the outer ring for last, so I don’t smash the tulips. Leave one of the flat sides of the wreath empty so that the wreath will lie nicely on the door.  Be sure to keep the tulips facing the same direction as you move around the wreath. Don’t worry too much about holes you might see. You can fill them in at the end. 
  4. Once you have covered the wreath form with tulips, fill any gaps where the ribbon is visible with remaining tulips. 
  5. Now make the wreath hanger. Shape the pipe cleaner into a horseshoe shape. Secure to the back of the wreath with floral pins, folding the ends of the pipe cleaner up so they don’t slip out of the pins. Place hot glue over floral pin.(See photo below)
  6. Once the glue has cooled over the wreath hanger, trim a piece of felt or ribbon to cover the floral pins. 
  7. Now hang your beautiful Spring tulip wreath on your front door and enjoy!
