I love this pretty tulip wreath. I saw it on Pinterest last year, and I've wanted to make it ever since. I never did get to it last spring, but I made it this year, and I love how bright and cheery it looks. Tulips are one of my favorite flowers, but they don't last very long, and if you cut them, they have an even shorter life span. Especially with my brown and dead (as opposed to green) thumb.
I got bunches of fake tulips at Michaels. I also used a grapevine wreath. I just stuck the flowers in. I was planning on gluing them, but they actually stay in pretty well with the trick I used (see below).
My wreath holder doesn't fit on my front door, or at least, it won't unless I cut a notch for it in the door frame. And I don't think that would be a good idea. So I brought it inside and it adds some spring cheerfulness to my entryway.
Since the tutorial is great, I won't redo it here.
A couple of things I didn't see mentioned in the original tutorial:
First, make sure to use wire cutters or pliers or something. The stems have wires in them and you'll destroy your scissors if you try to use them instead.
The greenery on the stem can get in the way so that you can't poke it into your wreath very well.
Slide it all the way to the top and you have a nice long stem to work with and also, the greenery helps fill in your wreath.
Also, I didn't have a coupon, so my cost was closer to $25, not the $12 mentioned in the tutorial.
