EASY, inexpensive and beautiful DIY spring wreath!

These are my favorite kinds of projects/posts my friends! Quick DIYs that are easy to replicate and aren't going to break the bank. This one is especially easy! 

I found this tulip wreath and fell. in. LOVE with it:

But the price? Seventy dollars?? 😳 It's gorgeous but I knew I could make my own. 

I gathered my supplies -- this grapevine wreath I had already. I recommend grabbing one when they're on sale (I believe this one was $5 after half off). I love these because they're SO easy to stuff with seasonal items:

Then I went to Hobby Lobby because their fake flowers were half off. I grabbed way more than I needed just in case (they're usually half off every other week so I wanted to make sure I had enough):

So pretty! 

I used my wire cutting pliers and started cutting the stems off the bunches:

Then you just stuff them in! It really is so easy. Just place them where you want. 

I thought it looked pretty with just a couple bunches on there:

But I wanted a fuller look so I went with six bunches total:

LOVE it! Mine was $24 and is even bigger than the one online. Score! 

I used six bunches at $4 each. I had the wreath, but as I mentioned, you would easily come in under $30 for a very full and large wreath. If you go with a slightly smaller grapevine wreath you'd be able to make due with fewer flowers too. 

I use a Command hook to hang my wreaths on the glass door. This is what I use and it's made for wet locations. We don't get any of the elements on the door, but I used it just in case. It's stayed up for years and held HEAVY wreaths:

It's hard to get a photo of the glass door without me in it. ;) You don't want to see me in my comfy pants so here you go:

SO pretty! I just love it! Mine measures about 24 inches across, bigger in some spots. You can make it bigger or smaller with your placement of the tulips. 

Of course you can use any fake flower or greenery for a wreath like this! I love that I can take them out, keep them for next spring and reuse the wreath for summer. It takes maybe ten minutes to add the flowers in once you've got them cut. 

If you don't want to DIY this wreath these are some BEAUTIFUL options. I'm so ready for spring!:

  5. I made TWO tulip wreaths last weekend - we have two front doors - using the grapevine wreath like you showed - and smaller tulips from Michael's - I used a combination of ivory, peachy-blush and pale pink. I purchased ribbon with the intent of making a bow for each but it seemed too much because I really filled the wreaths with the tulips. One tip is to push the leaves up the stem and as close to the flower as you can and then use your wire cutters.

    1. Not sure how I ended up as "Cincinatus"? - I don't have a blog - do I need one to post? Anyway, there is a similar wreath, in pink, in the new Grandin Road catalog - for $139!!

  6. Wow, so easy and not too expensive since can be redone time after time. Your wreath is so very pretty, great job. Is there anything you can't do well? Am always so amazed at all you tackle in your home, phew, what a gal.
    Been seeing tulip wreaths but thought would be too expensive. Like idea of buying tulips in a bunch, more for the money. Will have to wait til we get paid again (3/22) to make one, buy all needed, but looking forward to hanging tulip wreath on our front door. Will keep close eye on HL's ads for sales on their faux tulips and go scrounging for a wreath in stash. Do have a square grapevine wreath, maybe that would work? Got some pretty light blue gingham ribbon for $1 today at Michaels. Now to decide what color tulips to get. Enjoy rest of week
    Love idea of Cincinatus for pushing leaves up close to flowers for extra fill in and filler.
    Sure glad you shared your gorgeous wreath, needed a good cheer-up.
    Finally have internet again, was without most of Feb., finally changed providers.
