Hi everyone! Welcome back to our third month of 12 Months of Wreaths! I have been seeing a lot of tulip wreaths lately and I wanted to try my hand at making one myself. Wow, this wreath looks complicated, but it has been one of my quicker wreaths that I have made. I kept it simple, with a burlap bow on one side with tulip buds cascading out on both sides. I also added a script monogram 'A' to the other side. The tulip buds are already starting to pop up in my yard, so this wreath couldn't have been made at a more perfect time!

Tulip Wreath Detail Shots
I made this wreath for our front door... EXCEPT... it smooshes against our storm door when I close the door. SUCH a bummer... SO, I am really going to need to stick to 'skinny/thin' wreaths for the front door and this tulip wreath will go on the inside of our garage door instead!
I have really been in love with neutrals mixed with gold accents. I thought about spray painting the monogram 'A' gold, but decided to make it white. This wreath looks perfect with this white door.
I made the burlap bow with burlap ribbon that has wire edges. The wire edges really are a must, if you want to shape your bow. I used my bowdabra to help me make this bow, it is such a valuable tool!
Another gorgeous detail shot of the bow, but this one shows more of the tulip buds cascading around it.
I had to go to FOUR stores to find the perfect tulips for this wreath. Hobby Lobby had the full size tulip buds, but I finally found baby tulip buds at Michaels. I loved mixing the sizes of full and baby flowers on this grapevine wreath!
How to Make a Tulip Wreath
The supplies for this project were pretty simple:
Tulips (I did full size AND baby blooms)
First, you'll want to make your burlap bow and hot glue it to the wreath. Then, cut your tulip buds off the stem bunch and leave about 3", so you can tuck that piece into the grapevine wreath. I also cut off some of the greens to tuck into the grapevine wreath as well.
Tuck your tulip blooms into the grapevine wreath above and below the bow. Then, spray paint your wooden initial letter the color you want and hot glue it to the wreath. That's it! It is SO easy... I really don't think it took me more than a couple of hours!
Thanks again for joining us! We will be sharing a new wreath once a month in 2017! Be sure to stop by all of the hosts and our co-host, Mary at Real Girls Realm to see what wreath we came up with for the month!
