Happy Spring! 🌷

Happy spring everyone!

We’ve made it through the winter!

As much as I enjoy winter activities and of course the festivities, I’m ready for the spring season πŸ™‚

The sunlight lasts longer into the day and the spring rain melted away some of the snow. Small snow piles are left over leaving wet squishy grass and small puddles of mud all over…

If that’s not a good enough reason to break out the cute rain boots πŸ™‚

You most certainly can bet I have gardening plans ready for action! πŸ‘©β€πŸŒΎπŸ’

As far as spring flowers go I think of tulips 🌷 and daffodils.

What about you? Do you have any favorite spring time flowers?

I’m also wondering what are your favorite springtime activities besides puddle jumping? πŸ™ƒ

As I’ve been day dreaming about spring flowers, I came across a great spring craft! What better way to welcome the change of season then to decorate a home with a great wreath!

How adorable is this spring tulip wreath!

I’ve done a little research reading various sites on Pinterest! This is a popular spring time craft!

I’ve read comments from other crafters expressing that this was a pricy craft project.

Whether your a beginner or expert crafter you never go into a craft store without coupons!

That’s just madness if you do!

Not to mention the store apps, flyers, email sign ups and SALES

yesssss hooray for craft store sales! πŸ‘

All the supplies I purchased either were on sale or I used coupons! πŸ‘Œ

My supplies list

  • 1 boxed wired wreath size 12 inches
  • 14-15 yards of ribbon in your choice of color. I liked using double faced ribbon for this craft project.
  • 14 tulip bunches in your choice of color. I made mine with shades of pink.
  • Set aside 3 tulip bunches to cut apart and fill in where needed in the wreath.
  • Other supplies: scissors, hot glue gun, diagonal pliers.

Steps

  1. I trimmed the ends of the tulip bunches using the diagonal pliers to a suitable length.
  2. I found that wrapping the boxed wired wreath with ribbon all the way around leaving a gap of space (for hanging up the wreath) was a good method.
  3. Place the tulips using the hot glue gun and wrapping with ribbon one at a time.
  4. Cut up 3 of the tulip bunches and fill in any areas on the wreath.

Tips

  • This method gave the wreath a fuller and more dimentional effect. I found it was easier to make and handle the wreath this way. I was able to buy less tulips!
  • Keep in mind the width and length of the ribbon you have when your wrapping so you don’t use up your ribbon. Always good to have extra.
  • Compare stores for pricing before purchasing your craft supplies
  • Go over everything you’ll need for your craft project before shopping πŸ›’
  • Don’t leave home without your shopping list and coupons
  • Adjust your craft supplies to meet your needs for example instead of using a wired boxed wreath you can use a foam wreath instead.
  • Also keep in mind the size. The smaller the wreath size the less supplies you’ll need.
  • Please always be careful when handling tools and hot glue guns. Safety first!

And voila! You’ve got yourself a Spring Tulip Wreath! 🌷🌷🌷
