1: Trim Stems + Start Ribbon

First, use wire cutters to snip off the tulip bouquet stems to shorten for use (Image 1). Tip: Snip several bouquets at the same time to speed up the process. Next, use a low-temp hot glue gun to add a dot of glue to the edge piece of the 2-inch ribbon spool. Press the ribbon edge firmly onto the back of the foam wreath form. Once secure, wrap the ribbon around the foam form four times. Leave the ribbon attached to the spool.

2: Add Bouquets

Note: To make an ombre pattern with tulips, start by using the darkest color first, the medium color second and the lightest color last. Use a low-temp hot glue gun to add a few dots of glue to the stems of the hot pink tulip bouquets, then press them firmly onto the foam wreath form. Next, wrap the spool of ribbon around the stems twice and add a dot of hot glue to the wrapped ribbon; wrap the ribbon once more over the dot of hot glue to secure (Image 1). Continue the steps above to add more bouquets to the form (Image 2). Once you return to the starting point, tuck the stems from the last bouquet into the wrapped ribbon of the first secured bouquet. Then wrap the stems with ribbon several times and secure with a dab of hot glue (Image 3). Trim the ribbon from the spool and glue the end piece to the back of the wreath.

3: Twine Loop

Create a loop at the top of the wreath by using a 15-inch piece of jute twine. Wrap one end of the twine around the top of the foam form and tie a knot to secure. Leave about 4 inches of twine in the middle to make a loop, then wrap the other end around the foam form and secure with a knot (Image 1). Then display this fresh, festive wreath on the front door to celebrate springtime (Image 2).
