- Boxwood wreath frame
- 4 bunches of yellow tulip florals (2 of these bundles have a mix of light and dark yellow tulips)
- 2 bunches of white tulip florals
- (2) 2.5” ribbons
- (3) 1.5” ribbons
- (1) 4” ribbon
- Pipe cleaners
- Zip ties
- Wire cutters
Cheater Tulip Wreath Instructions
Follow along as Coach Jordan guides you through the process step-by-step of making this beautiful spring tulip wreath with a boxwood base!
Note: This design uses a half bow, a technique Coach Jordan has been using in many of his projects lately.
Fun fact: this is a no-glue-needed project!
Begin by taking one bunch of each tulip color and using the wire cutters to cut the smaller tulip stem bunches off the main floral stem.
Next, take one small stem of each tulip color and bunch them together into a bundle. Insert the bundle into the boxwood base and attach it using a zip tie.
Pull the boxwood greenery through into the flower bunch so that the flowers appear to be an integrated part of the wreath.
Continue adding yellow and white tulip bundles all the way around the wreath frame, spacing each bundle (and adjusting the florals) so that it looks like a continuous design rather than separate bunches of florals.
Take your first 1.5” ribbon and make 12” tails with one 5” loop. Hold this ribbon in your non-dominant hand and stack the remaining layers of this bow behind it.
Next, grab the second 1.5” ribbon and make 12” tails with one 5” loop.
Now take the third 1.5” ribbon and make 12” tails with one 5” loop.
Take the 2.5” ribbon and make 12” tails with a 5” loop.
Use the last 2.5” ribbon and repeat the process one last time.
Finally, take the 4” ribbon and make one long tail so that it pops out at the top and bottom of this half bow.
Place a pipe cleaner behind the 4” ribbon, then wrap a zip tie around the center of this bow. Pull it tightly.
Use the pipe cleaner on the back of the bow to attach the bow to the frame of the wreath. Dovetail the ribbon ends.
That’s it – this “cheater” yellow and white tulip wreath is complete! Wasn’t it easy?
As Coach Jordan says, “minimal tulips, major impact.” If you want to add a little extra bit of pizazz, sprinkle a few lemons and/or limes into the design.
