It all started when I went shopping on Etsy for a fun gift for Madison’s teachers for Teacher Appreciation Week. I thought it would be neat to give her teachers a wreath for their classroom doors.
Well, I found one that was pretty perfect…everything except for the price tag! Each wreath was over $100!!??!? And my budget was way, way less than that.
So, I decided that I would make her teachers a wreath, just like the one I found on Etsy. I quickly discovered that not only are they super easy to make, they are also super budget friendly!
Supplies all purchased at Michael’s:
- 1 14″ grapevine wreath, $4.99
- 12 bunches of tulips (I chose 3 different colors: 6 dark pink, 5 light pink, 1 white), $1.99 each
- 2″ ribbon
- Glue gun and glue sticks
- Craft wire cutters
(And I used a 20% off coupon found on Michaels’ website.)
The first step is to fan out each bunch and push all of the leaves up toward the tulip. Using your wire cutters, cut each stem off leaving about 2 1/2 inches of stem on each flower.
I like to cut all of my flowers and separate them into groups by color.
Then the fun part begins! I start on one side of the wreath, placing in each flower stem and securing with hot glue. I keep in mind that I want to use more darker pink tulips and less white ones. I do this same method all the way around the wreath.
Before I have completely covered the wreath with flowers, I place the ribbon. I then add the final flowers and make sure not to glue any flowers down on the ribbon.
And that’s it! Now you can make a wreath for every season all you need to do is change the color of tulips!
