Reflecting Spring’s Beautiful Colors
It’s time to decorate the front porch! We’ve had a lot of rainy weather which has dampened my ability to decorate the front porch. I spent some time cleaning a couple weeks back, now it’s time to decorate – with the front door by making a Spring Tulip Wreath.
Spring Tulip Wreath Tutorial
The Supplies You Will Need
1 Green Styrofoam Wreath
12 Bouquets Silk Flowers – colors of your choice
Make the ‘bunches’ of tulips by combining two each of the colors – a total of eight tulips per bunch. Gather these bunches together with the floral wire cut in four to six inch length. The key is to randomly place the tulips by color so as to not have the same arrangement for each bunch of tulips. Wind the floral wire round the bunches securing the bouquet firmly. Set aside. You will end up with eighteen bunches of tulips.
You will need to place the bunches on the wreath form, securing them with the wire floral pins – more than one per bunch. Each bunch will be placed alternating side to side and spaced just below the other. Avoid the temptation to bunch too closely. You will have nine bunches per side of the wreath form.
Your Tulip Wreath
Once you’ve completed your wreath make sure each bunch is secure by tugging gently. Set it up to also make sure you are pleased with the arrangement. I’ve left a small spot on the left – see picture – for the placement of the bow.
