One of my favorite ways to welcome each season is with a new wreath on the front door.

A wreath is such a simple addition that instantly brings a fresh perspective to the front of any home, without much effort.

It’s one of the first things your guests see and an easy way to speak volumes and express your style, without even saying a word.

As we begin to refresh our homes for the upcoming season, Michaels challenged the Michaels Makers team to incorporate some beautiful spring florals into our home decor.

Naturally, I started with the entrance to our home – our front door.

Tulips scream ‘spring’ like no other flower – so, of course, they were my first pick from Michael’s new Floral Market.

One of my favorite type of grapevine wreaths was used as the base to create this
simple spring tulip wreath.

The wispy grapevine adds a natural touch to the mini faux florals, which will stay fresh and cheery,
all season long.

This wreath requires no special crafting skills, or floral arranging experience, and can be completed fairly quickly following the easy steps below.

For reference, I used 20 bunches of mini tulips to completely fill the 24 inch wreath.

Step One: Trim the end of the floral stems with wire cutters.

For a fuller look, slide the greenery to the top of the stems.

Step Two: Slightly bend the stem to conform to the shape of the wreath.

Loop a piece of floral wire around the stem and grapevine.  Tightly twist the ends of the wire towards the back of the wreath, as shown below, to hold the stem in the place.

The excess wire can be trimmed at this point or at the end, once all the stems are attached.

I like using floral wire when putting my wreaths together – so they can be easily taken apart at the turn of a new season – and the grapevine base can be re-used.

As mentioned above, these grapevine wreaths are my favorite and they do quite well out in the elements.

Step Three: Continue to layer and attach the stems until the wreath is complete.

Each bunch of tulips is placed right on top of the prior bunch.

For a fuller and lush wreath, layer the bunches close together leaving little to no room between the stems.

As you work your way around the wreath, you will see that when you attach each new stem – you will be securing the prior stem, a second time, as well.

This will help keep the stems in place and can be seen in the photo above.

Once you have worked your way back around to the starting point, the last couple of stems will need to be tucked into place to create a seamless design.

To do this, simply lift ‘the starting bunch’ so the wire can be attached and secured underneath then fluff the blooms back into place.
