DIY Mini Tulip Wreath

Well....After waking up to this...
Snowy Day
I knew I had to do something "springy" around here. I still can't believe that it snowed! I mean really... It's March 25th!

We're supposed to be seeing crocus and daffodils. My favorite are tulips.

So, once the roads cleared, I headed into town to one of my favorite places...Dollar Tree! :)

I've been pinning some really pretty tulip wreaths on Pinterest. I thought I'd give one a whirl.

I purchased 7 bunches of tulips and a flimsy grapevine wreath.

The grapevine wasn't going to show, so I didn't really care. I bought it because it was the right size. So, after spending a whopping $8 and I was on my way home.

Pretty, huh!

Next, I snipped the flowers off the main stems.

Honestly, this was one of the easiest crafts I've done.
Next, I plugged in my glue gun and just laid the tulips out to get an idea of how I wanted them. Super easy!!!

So, I dumped them off and just started gluing them on. I weaved a bit of the stem into the wreath. I couldn't believe how quick it went.

Then I wove a ribbon through the back and hung it above the mantle. There you have it!

I finally worked on my spring mantle, but it definitely needs some tweaking. 

Hopefully, soon we will have some true spring like weather!
