Ah, it’s finally spring! And now that spring has arrived, it’s the perfect time to spruce up our front door with a new wreath.
I absolutely love to decorate for spring using tulips, so I decided to make this simple DIY tulip wreath to add a splash of spring color to our front porch.
This wreath is super easy to make, if you’re up for a little diy spring wreath project. There is very little mess involved — I didn’t even use a glue gun for this craft.
Materials for the DIY Spring Wreath:
- 2 grapevine wreaths
- bunches of tulips
- floral tape
- zip ties
- 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.)
Of course, if you’d rather skip the DIY and just purchase a pretty tulip wreath, I’m sharing some of my favorites below.

Are these real tulips? It looks sparkling but would they last long?
Hi Audrey! No, the wreath is made with faux tulips similar to the ones in the links. While I do love fresh tulips, you are correct that they would not last very long in the wreath.
