A Faux Tulip Wreath DIY For Spring

It’s been a long old winter hasn’t it? Just when we think that the temperatures are rising and the flowers are starting to bloom, the cold takes hold once more and we’re reaching for our woolies! I thought I’d speed things up a bit, and bring a bit of much needed spring colour to our home, by making a faux tulip wreath.

Wreath DIY

Wreath DIY is such a rewarding pastime; really relaxing and — best of all — you have a lovely product at the end of it! I’ve made quite a few wreaths over the years; quite a few silk flower wreaths — you can read the tutorial here.

And I made an Anthropologie inspired pom pom wreath a couple of Christmasses ago too; super simple but looks a million dollars.

But back to today’s make; I’ve seen lots of faux tulip wreaths on Instagram and with Easter just around the corner, I thought I’d make one of my own.

Super Simple

Although this tulip wreath looks pretty spectacular, I genuinely think it’s the easiest DIY wreath I’ve ever made.

Usually I use the plain polystyrene wreath rings but Hobbycraft didn’t have any and the ones on Amazon were £££.

So I bought a pre-made faux foliage wreath.

Slightly more than I’d usually spend on the base but I figured, as the foliage was already in place, I’d spend less on the flowers!

All the tools you’ll need to make a faux tulip DIY wreath — I bought all mine from Hobbycraft
  1. A plain faux foliage wreath

The method here couldn’t be simpler.

Take the wire cutters and cut the single stems of faux tulips from the bunch.

Then poke the flowers through the wreath, to form your design.

I left some of the foliage on the stems, as I like the interest of the different colours and shapes.

Work around the wreath, poking the the wire end of the ‘flower’ through, from front to back. And make sure the flowers are all facing the same direction.

Then the back of the wreath, simply tuck the wire ends over; back into the wreath, to secure each stem.

Occasionally, if the flower didn’t feel secure, I added a blob of hot glue; sometimes to the front, sometimes to the back, to keep the stem or flower in place

It really was that simple

Finishing Touches

To secure it to the door, I added a length of ribbon.

I fold the ribbon double, and pass the ends through the loop to tie it around the wreath.

If you pop a hook on the back of the door, this is a great way to secure your wreath, without the need for hammering nails or hooks to the front of the door.

But — best of all — it will last a lifetime.

    • This was definitely the easiest wreath I’ve ever made!! Kind of wondering why I’ve always made them with polystyrene wreaths in the past!!! It’s so easy with a faux foliage wreath :) Can’t wait to see what you do Kirsty! XX
