Coach Mel is here today to demonstrate a beautiful tulip wreath design your customers will go crazy for! These grapevine tulip wreaths will add that needed cheery touch of spring to any front door.
Hey, y’all! Today we have an amazing spring wreath design to share that will help you get your spring inventory filled up and ready to sell out. And we are so lucky to have Coach Mel show us all the ins and outs of this fun project!
I have some good news and some bad news. Let’s get the bad news out of the way first. Spring is already starting to make its appearance in many (southern) parts of the country, so if you haven’t begun working on your spring inventory yet, you’re behind.
But, now for the good news. Today’s spring grapevine wreath design is quick and simple to make, so you can make a bunch of them quickly and have them ready to sell in an afternoon!
If you live up north where spring won’t appear for a couple more months, use our tested and true Craft Calendar to help you stay ahead of your customer’s purchasing trends. Our method helps us maximize our earning potential, and it can help you too!
This design is different from our first Tulip Wreath, and it’s much quicker too! Be sure to check out our “Cheater” Yellow And White Tulip Wreath, which is another quick spring tulip wreath that can help you fill your inventory and start selling quickly.
How To Make Pink And Yellow Tulip Wreaths
Are you ready to have a new spring wreath in about 20–25 minutes? Here’s everything you need to know to make this design yourself.
Here’s what you’ll need to make this beautiful and cheery wreath. I’ve included some helpful links to make finding items you may not have easier.
- 16” Grapevine base
- (2) Floral stems – white
- (3) Bushes of three different colors of tulip florals (we used light pink, pink with yellow, and dark pink)
- (1) 2.5” ribbon
- (1) 1.5” ribbon
- Pipe cleaner
- Bolt cutters
- EZ Bow Maker
Instructions For DIY Spring Tulip Wreaths
Follow this step-by-step tutorial to try this design yourself!
Start by inspecting your grapevine wreath base to make sure there isn’t anything poking out too far that may scratch your customer’s door. If you find any pieces, cut them off with bolt cutters.
Next, cut your white floral stems off the main bush with bolt cutters and add to the grapevine base by dipping each stem into the hot glue and inserting it into the wreath.
These small, pretty white flowers will hide much of your grapevine base while also creating a floral background that highlights your tulips.
Tip: Slide all the stems into the base from the same direction to provide a uniform-looking wreath.
Now, repeat the process with the first color of tulip bushes you want to use. Dip each stem into hot glue before inserting it into an open area on the grapevine. Work your way around the wreath.
Take your second color of tulips and follow the same process, using this color to fill in even more open space in your design.
Next, use your third color of tulips to fill in any remaining open gaps in your design. Repeat the gluing and inserting process as you work your way around the grapevine base.
Isn’t it looking gorgeous? A simple tulip wreath like this one at this point is ready in about 15 minutes, and customers love it (so you could stop here if you wanted to). But today, we’re going to add a bow to finish the design.
Note: Notice that the two ribbons Coach Mel uses here have the same pattern but are two different sizes.
Take your 2.5” ribbon and measure out a 7” tail. Pinch the ribbon there and make (2) 5” loops and another 7” tail.
Now grab the 1.5” ribbon – this layer will now have 5 loops total. Measure a 15” tail, then make a small 3” loop (which will be your center loop to cover the pipe cleaner). Pinch, twist, and make (2) 4” loops. Then pinch, twist, and make (2) 5” loops behind the previous loops and cut another 15” tail.
Fold a pipe cleaner around the center and twist it tightly in the back. Spread out your bow, first taking the two long tails down to the bottom and fanning out the remaining loops and tails.
Attach the bow to the wreath on the left side of the design with the pipe cleaner. Make sure all the tails are dovetailed, and the bow is fluffed out.
That’s it! Coach Mel has a genius for working with florals because she’s so good at mixing different colors of the same flowers to create a simple design with tons of depth.

Pink And Yellow Tulips Wreaths
- Inspect your grapevine wreath base and cut off any pieces that stick out with bolt cutters.
- Cut the white floral stems off with bolt cutters and dip each one into hot glue before inserting it into the grapevine base. Add them in all around the base, sliding the stems into the base from the same direction.
- Repeat the process with the first color of tulips you want to use. Dip each stem into the hot glue and insert it into an open area in the design. Continue all the way around the wreath.
- Follow the same process with the second color of tulips, filling in even more open space in the wreath.
- Finally, add the third color of tulips and fill in any remaining open gaps in your design and you work your way around the frame.
- It's time to make a simple bow.With your 2.5-inch ribbon, measure out a 7-inch tail, two 5-inch loops, and another 7-inch tail.Grab the 1.5-inch ribbon to make 5 loops, total, in this layer. Measure a 15-inch tail, then a small 3-inch loop. Now add two 4-inch loops behind that single loop. Finally, make two 5-inch loops behind the previous loops and cut another 15-inch tail.Wrap a pipe cleaner around the center and twist it tightly behind the bow. Spread out the layers of the bow, first taking the two long tails down to the bottom and fanning out the remaining loops and tails.Attach the bow to the wreath on the left side of the design with the pipe cleaner.
