Tulip and Cross Evergreen Door Hanger Kit
Tulips are such a classic in floral design. They are beautiful on there own and come in so many different colors. When they are mixed into an arrangement, they are even more fabulous.
Tulips also give us all the spring feels. In the northern states, these beauties are some of the first flowers to pop up. They signal the end to a long winter and give the promise that warm weather is just around the corner.
No matter where you’re from, tulips give us the promises of new life and new beginnings. While they are perfect for spring decor that doesn’t mean you can’t use them for year round wreaths and door hanger designs.
This door hanger is the ideal for spring door decor but it will also be a great fit any day of the year. If you are loving the tulips and want to use more, check out our post on how to make a handmade tulip wreath!

Tulip and Cross Evergreen Door Hanger Kit
- Start by fluffing out your floral stems so that they are 3D instead of flat. Then use the wire cutters to trim the stem.
- Use zip ties to attach the floral spray to the side of the cross frame. Arrange the floral spray to go across the cross at a slight diagonal.
- Next, trim the greenery stem and then add it too the bottom of the floral spray going the opposite direction so the stems meet. Use another zip tie to attach it to the frame.
- Now it's time to make the bow. Start with one 1.5" ribbon and measure an 8" tail. Twist the ribbon and add it to the bowmaker. Then make one 6" loop, leave another tail and then trim the ribbon from the spool. Repeat this process with the other 2 1.5" ribbons. Then use a pipe cleaner to secure the center of the bow.
- Next, use the pipe cleaner to attach the bow to the cross frame at the spot where your greenery and floral stems meet.
- Fluff the bow and the floral spray and then dovetail the ends of your ribbons.
- Next, fluff out your spray of tiny white flowers and separate them into smaller sections. Add one section to the bottom of the arrangement, under the bow. Then add one to the top of the arrangement.
