A tulip wreath is a perfect addition to your front door this spring. Plus this one is easy to make. So, you may want to make one for you as well as one for a friend. One of these spring wreaths would also look great above the mantle with our Easter jars.

Supplies to make a tulip wreath:
- 12 unfinished wood tulips (you can find the ones I used here)
- Craft paint in green, yellow, pink, aqua, and purple (or the colors of your choice)
- Beacon Powertac Adhesive
How to make a spring wreath with tulips:
Gather your supplies then follow along with our instructions for making a tulip wreath below. This should come together in less than 30 minutes, not including dry time for your paint. So, make the entire project in one afternoon then add to your front door.
Tulip Wreath Instructions
- You will need to paint the unfinished wood tulips first. Start with the green at the bottom. Paint both the leaves as well as the stem in green. You will want to be sure to paint the edges. Also, note that this may require two coats of paint for complete coverage. Paint one coat, allow to dry, then add a second coat.
- Then paint the top of each of your tulips. I used three colors so I paint four in each color. Again be sure to paint the sides as well for a finished look. You may need two coats of paint once again for complete coverage.
- Once the paint on your tulips is completely dry, you can start assembling your wreath. Be sure to dry-fit the entire thing together before using any glue. The bottom layer should be alternating with two of the colors as shown.
- Add drops of glue where the top layer will touch the bottom layer.
- Then you just add the other two colors of tulips on the top, alternating colors in the same manner as the bottom layer. Be sure that each of the top tulips is on the dots of glue.
- Then just let the glue dry completely before hanging on your door. You may need to add a loop of ribbon to the back for hanging as well.
So, will you make a tulip wreath for your front door this spring? This wreath is so simple yet it is simply stunning. It makes a great addition to your spring decor. TIP: If you are going to hang this wreath outdoors, you may want to use a good quality outdoor paint or spray over the top with a good quality sealer before hanging.
Also, I found that the Beacon Powertac works best for this project. If you are going to use another glue, be sure it is rated for outdoor use and that it dries clear. Otherwise, enjoy this simple tulip wreath around your home this season. If you don’t have a spring wreath yet, what are you waiting for?
