Do you love tulips as much as I do? I’m sharing an easy DIY spring wreath for your front door made with beautiful pink tulips.
On this very cold, last weekend of February, I’ve decided to remove all traces of winter from my home and move head-long into spring — even if the weather outside isn’t quite cooperating!
After Christmas, I keep some greenery and pine cones out around the house, and in pots on my front porch, but they have worn out their welcome, and it’s time for some cheerful spring color!
The winter greenery in my front porch pots is getting tossed and I’m replacing my winter wreath with a pretty spring tulip wreath! Nothing says spring quite like tulips!!

This wreath is super easy to make, if you’re up for a little diy spring wreath project. I didn’t even use a glue gun for this one.
Materials for the DIY Spring Wreath:
2 grapevine wreaths
bunches of tulips
burlap ribbon or bow
I started by zip-tying two grapevine wreaths together. This is not a necessary step. You can use only one, if you prefer, but some grapevine wreaths can be a little skimpy, and I find that combining two grapevine wreaths together just makes a more substantial wreath. (I have to credit Yvonne from StoneGable blog for this tip I discovered a few years ago!)
First, gather your tulips into bunches. I made bunches of 8 – 10 tulips and wrapped the stems in floral tape. I positioned the bunches along the wreath and then used the zip ties to secure them to the grapevine wreath.
My wreath is asymmetric, so I placed a few tulip bunches in one direction, and then some in the opposite direction along one side of the wreath, wrapping around to cover about 2/3’s of the wreath.
I made a large burlap bow with some burlap ribbon I had on hand and placed it in the center of the tulip bunches. Use the zip ties to secure the bow to the wreath. You can also use floral wire to attach the bow. After attaching the bow, I added a few more tulips sporadically to fill in some gaps.
TIP: I have a metal door hanger, but it is shorter than I would like, so the wreath hangs too close to the top of the door. To remedy this, I made an “extender” with a large loop of floral wire and attached it to the top of the grapevine wreath. I used this wire extender loop to hang the wreath on the door hanger so that the wreath is positioned on the door where I like it. I then ran a long ribbon of burlap up and over the door to hide the floral wire “extender” and the metal door hanger as well.
My door is definitely in a spring mood now! (Apparently, so is Rosie! Or maybe that’s a “Hey, Mom, please take me for a walk instead of taking pictures” mood.)
Supplies for this easy spring tulip wreath:
For a variation on this assymetric wreath design, you could create enough tulip bunches to cover the entire grapevine wreath in tulips like the pretty tulip wreath from Wayfair below.
I hope you’re feeling inspired to bring on spring by adding a touch of spring to your front door with this easy spring wreath DIY!
