Tutorial: a wreath of tulips to hang

Do you like flowers but are looking for a more original idea than the traditional bouquet? Why not start making a homemade crown? With a few tulips and an armful of eucalyptus, create an astonishing ephemeral composition that will charm all your visitors.

Equipment

- A metal circle with a diameter of 20 or 25 cm - Florist's binding wire (covered with kraft paper / green plastic) - A few tulips - A few eucalyptus branches - A ribbon or cotton string of around 25 cm - A pair of scissors - Pruning shears or florist scissors

Steps

1. Tie the cord to form a closed loop. Pass it around the metal circle to be able to hang it.

Finally

When your work is done, cut the stems sticking out and the excess wire. Your wreath is ready to hang on the wall or on a door as a spring welcome sign! Did you like this tutorial? Send us photos of your achievements via our Facebook page, and find other ideas on our Pinterest!
