Supplies for this project

You’ll need: 

  • Desert foam
  • Decorative moss
  • Glass pot 
  • Hot glue gun 
  • Pink tulips 
  • Calla lilies
  • Artificial hosta plant
  • Blue silk flowers
  • Yellow silk flowers
  • Pink ranunculus flowers
  • Greenery
    • Variegated boxwood
    • Yellow-green clippings
    • Ivy

How to make a spring tulip arrangement: Step-by-step tutorial 

1. Prep your base

First, grab your container of choice and fill it with a cutting of desert foam. You don’t need to secure it with glue; simply duct tape it to the bottom. This way, you can reuse the container for future arrangements!

Apply a layer of decorative moss over the foam, hot gluing to secure it. 

Then, take your hosta plant and insert it at an angle into one side of your desert foam. 

2. Add silk flowers

Next, the florals!

Add blue silk flowers at various heights, evenly distributing them throughout the arrangement for depth and visual appeal. 

Include some pink tulips, trimming and adding one at a time for a realistic touch. Make sure to vary the heights and bend the stems for more realism. Focus your tulips on one-quarter of the arrangement opposite your hosta plant. 

Use any additional tulip leaves to fill in gaps for the perfect tulip flower arrangement. 

Next, trim and add your calla lilies, adding them in two separate quarters opposite each other (between the tulips and hosta.)

Finally, insert faux forsythia pieces for a touch of elegance and whimsy. Distribute throughout for an even smattering of yellow and some added height. 

3. Insert greenery

Add yellow-green greenery to the mix, adding small sprigs to the base of the arrangement. Then, include variegated boxwood greenery for more depth. 

4. Add in pink ranunculus 

When it comes to spring, a little extra pink doesn’t hurt! Include pink ranunculus opposite your tulips. The different shades of pink, as well as the different sizes, will add great visual interest.   

5. Finishing touches

Fill in any remaining spots with greenery. Add some ivy to drape down over your container, along with any other scraps of greenery that you have left over. 

Fluff everything to perfection, and your first, of many spring tulip arrangements is complete!
