Spring is on the horizon! And, very soon, the clocks will go forward and the days will start to lengthen and warm up. But, for now, to bring a little bit of much needed colour to our lives, I wanted to share this very simple tutorial. How to make a spring tulip wreath.
- Using wire cutters, cut single stems of faux tulips.
- Poke the 'flowers' through the wreath, to form your design. Work around the wreath, poking the the wire end of the 'tulip' through, from front to back. Make sure the flowers are all facing the same direction.
- At the back of the wreath, simply tuck the wire ends over; back into the wreath, to secure each stem. If the flowers don't feel secure, just add blob of hot glue (either to the front or back — whichever you think will work best) to keep the stem or flower in place.
- Add a length of ribbon to hang the wreath. 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.
I used 6 bunches of faux tulips but 3 would have been fine.

How To Attach Your DIY Spring Wreaths to your Front Door
I originally shared this post back in 2022 on Instagram. And had lots of requests from people, asking how I’d attached the wreath to our front door.
So many people have composite doors (or really smart wooden ones) these days. You certainly wouldn’t want to bang a nail in the front, with the thought that it might ruin the finish!
As we have a grade 2 listed building, I didn’t want to put a nail on the front door. So to hang my spring tulip wreath I secured a small hook* to the back of the front door.
* If you weren’t happy to bang in a nail, you could use Command Hooks.
Then I cut a good, long amount of ribbon (enough to hang from the hook at the back of the door, over to where I’d like the top of the wreath at the front). Then add a little extra, just for good measure!
I fold the ribbon double, then pass the ends through the loop to tie it around the wreath.
Then hang the wreath over the door and attach the ribbon to the hook at the back with a bow.
