I may not have changed out of the yoga pants I wore to bed last night, but I fed both girls (six times each), changed 2,483 cloth diapers, ate too many cookies, indulged in my daily cup ‘o joe and a coke, and made this:
While perusing the endless abyss you all know as Pinterest, I stumbled upon the prettiest tulip wreath from Etsy. Needless to say, as much as I wish I had 48 bucks to spend on a wreath, I knew I could do it myself. And so can you. It’s easy peasy. In case you’d like to, here’s what you’ll need:
I bought everything at Hobby Lobby yesterday because they were having a 50% all their floral. The sale ends this Saturday, fyi. (Michaels is having the same sale, however I really wanted magenta tulips and they only sell light pink and red in that color fam.)
Then, starting on the inside, place individual tulips around the entire wreath by sticking the ends amidst the branches. Make sure you don’t stick them all the way in; you want a few inches of the stem showing.
Once you’ve done the inside, stick some tulips around the outside of the wreath. They should stick out a few inches from the outer circumference of the wreath. Also, make sure that your stems point out at an angle, they don’t have to follow the direction of the wreath exactly. And don’t worry if the tulips aren’t evenly spaced or sticking out the exact same length, imperfection is pretty in this case. :)
And that’s it! You’ve got yourself a brand new wreath that will usher in spring faster than you can say “groundhog”!

(Side note: I wanted a big ‘ole wreath at 24 inches, but you can also get smaller sizes which means you won’t need as many tulips, which means less moolah, which means…well, you know.)
