Things You’ll Need:

4 Bunches of Tulips

Wired Ribbon of your choice

Green Paddle Wire

Wire Cutters


Things to do:

  1. Start by cutting the tulips from the bush

3. Continue wrapping bunches of 3 tulips with floral wire and adding onto existing flowers. This will help to build up your carrot.

4. Once you get to your desired length, it’s time for greenery! Start by fluffing it out and then cutting the majority of the stem off.

5. Place the greenery over the stems of the tulips. Wire the greenery around the stems and then cut off any extra tulip stems.

6. Get desired wired ribbon cut and ready to make your bow. Use the ribbon to personalize your piece. Make this yours! Use the wired ribbon to make fun spirals with the ends of your ribbon, simple wrapping it around for a fun finished look.
