A few weeks ago I grabbed up these cute metal tulip shapes from my local Dollar Store and knew I needed to make something cute…what exactly? Well, a crafter never really knows but my heart ended up leading me to create the most adorable jumbo tulip porch decor!
- Metal tulip cutouts from Dollar Tree
- Scrapbook paper of choice
- wooden rulers
- planter box
- floral foam
- spanish moss and(or) trailing plant
I prepared the tulip cut outs by removing the strings that came attached and traced the outline on 3 different fun colors of scrapbook paper.
After that I attached the paper cutouts to the tulips using mod podge and added a few details with white paint for a little dimension.
Then, I added a few coats of matte clear varnish protect the paper from the elements. I wouldn’t necessarily recommend placing these tulips in the direct elements but I think styled on a covered porch would be just fine.
Once the varnish was dry I attached wooden rulers as stems and styled them in the cutest little weaved boxes from Roost and Restore Home. All it took to secure them in the box was a few chunks of floral foam covered with spanish moss and a faux trailing plant!
A great alternative to the scrap book paper would be to simply paint them and add your own fun designs or textures the jumbo tulips. I would definitely make sure to seal them, either way you decide to make your own.
I love how the few extra paint strokes added to the personality of these cute flowers. And can we just talk about how dang versatile this trailing greenery is? I adore how it looks styled with pretty much anything. Ithas become a staple piece of greenery in our home decor shoppe and I can certainly see why.
See this same greenery styled here in this rusty bird cage decor idea.
I love this little project because for one it is super cute and easy but also, it adds the perfect little pop of color to your porch or sunroom! I hope this project has inspired you for your own porch decor project! Be sure to check out our online home decor boutique linked below.
