I have seen some gorgeous Easter and spring wreaths and I’ve always wanted to make one. Today I made this beautiful tulip carrot wreath and it added so much spring energy to our kitchen! It can be hung on a door or on the back of a chair.
Tulip Carrot Wreath
While I think this wreath would be gorgeous with real tulips, I used artificial tulips and greenery for this project. That way I can pack it away neatly and hang it again next year.
It’s super easy to make! Just scroll down for the DIY details and supplies.
First, I removed the leaves from the bunches of tulips. It’s really easy to do, just tug on the flower stems and they pull right away from the leaves. It’s ok to leave the wire out of the tulips.
Using floral wire, zip ties, or any other similar tie, wrap the flowers together starting at the tip of the carrot. Working upwards, add additional tulips to begin making a carrot shape. I secured the tulips together several times using wire as I built the shape of the carrot upwards.
It helps to lay the carrot tulip wreath on a flat table to create a good carrot shape. You can also pull, push, or tug on the tulips to get them in the right spot.
Next, I secured some draping and flowing greens to the top of the carrots. I just picked out whatever greenery reminded me of carrot tops. I absolutely love how the green falls around the shape of the carrot.
Using hot glue and burlap ribbon, I began wrapping the tulip wreath stems. I did this by placing a line of hot glue on one side of the ribbon and then tightly wrapping it around all of the stems. You really can’t do this part wrong, just glue and wrap around the wire to make sure the flowers stay in place.
Making a Tulip Door Hanger
Once I was done gluing and wrapping the tulip stems and greenery, I used the same burlap ribbon to create a special bow. I’ve been holding on to this burlap ribbon for so long. It’s so exciting to actually use it this spring! Don’t have burlap ribbon? I think green ribbon would look great too.

Finally, glue the bow onto the wrapped stems.
At this point you can hang the tulip carrot wreath on the door or, like I did, on the back of a chair! To hang it on a chair, use clear fishing line. Pull a long piece through the center of the tulip carrot shape and secure it to the top of a chair with a knot.
