80 fresh spring-like ideas for tinkering and decorating tulips

Spring is here and with it the sunny mood, colorful color palette and of course the spring flowers are back. The incredible popularity and diverse color scheme of the tulips are absolutely unsurpassed. These flowers are the real heralds of spring. Tulip festivals are held annually in various places around the world at this time to celebrate their special characteristics. Tinker tulips or pick from the garden and give them as hearty gifts, all of which symbolize respect, care or affection. A major disadvantage of all cut flowers is, of course, that they only let their heads droop and wither after a few days. You always wish you had the opportunity to marvel at them for much longer.

Creative and fresh DIY projects for making tulips allow you to enjoy these beautiful flowers at any time of the year. They’re also easy to do, making them perfect for a craft weekend with the kids.

Make tulips out of colorful colored and crepe paper

Colored and crepe paper flowers look almost like natural tulips, but they last much longer and of course do not wither. You can also personalize these at will far better than the real ones. You alone determine the color, size and complexity of the flowers. If you want to be extra fun, you can make your own rainbow colored parrot tulips. This is precisely why they are so popular as decorative items. You can put the finished paper flowers in a beautiful vase, without water, of course, and make them into the centerpiece of the festive table decoration or tie them into a bouquet and give them as a gift to your loved ones.

After all, Mother’s Day and Easter are also just around the corner. If your paper tulips are intended as gifts, then in addition to their decorative value they can also fulfill the task of gift wrapping. What we mean by this is that you could hide little sweet surprises in it. Small, mouth-sized chocolates are the most popular choice. Those with a sweet tooth are especially happy about such flowers. If these goodies are also from you self made then the gift becomes something very special.

You will need the following materials for your own paper tulips:

  • Colored craft paper or crepe paper for the flowers and green for the leaves
  • Green floral tape for the stems
  • Wooden skewers
  • Small cellophane bags or leaves
  • chocolates
  • Paper glue or hot melt glue and scissors
  • Matching flower paper and bow to tie the bouquet

Making tulips out of colored and crepe paper can now proceed as follows:

  • First cut out large pieces of cellophane and wrap your chocolates with them.
  • Place a wooden skewer in the folds and wrap green floral tape tightly around it. In this way you form the stem of your first tulip.

  • Now cut out a few three-petaled petals and drill small holes in their centers. Also cut out three leaf-shaped pieces in green. None of these shapes have to be absolutely exact – there is no such thing as perfection in nature either.

  • Fold the flowers slightly towards the center and roll the sides inwards so that they resemble small cups.
  • Slide the first petal through the skewer to the praline and glue the edges so that they overlap.

  • Repeat the procedure with the second petal and glue each leaf onto the seam of the first flower.

  • Lightly fold the three elongated green pieces in half and wrap the tips outward to form the leaves. Now attach it to the skewer using the floral tape.

  • Once you’ve crafted some tulips, tie them loosely in a bunch. Wrap this like a real bouquet in flower paper and finish it with a bow. Alternatively, you can replace the bouquet with a flower pot. To do this, put a little floral foam in the container and pierce the wooden handles. Then hide the whole thing with a little Easter grass or tulle.

Bouquets not your thing? Use flower pots instead!
