A Cheerful Wreath from Cupcake Liners


My 2nd oldest turned four this weekend and her party was loosely cupcake themed.  The night before, I whipped up a cute wreath using colourful paper cupcake liners.

I started with a foam wreath form, a lot of pretty cupcake liners, and some pins.


I turned the liners inside out so that the print was facing in, and then crumpled the bottom into soft folds to make a ruffle-y flowery shape.


And then pinned them to the wreath form.




After covering the wreath form in the scrunched liners, I filled in any bare spots with a mini cupcake liner pinned straight into the bare spot.



Voila!


Although this one was for a birthday party, I think it would  be cute as party of a spring or Easter vignette too!

  4. That's awesome and actually something I think I might be able to do!!!! Just one question - how did you tie the ribbon? around the wreath? or did you staple to the back? Thanks for sharing!!!

    1. Hi! I attached the ribbon to the back with a greening pin. A staple would work just as well :)

    1. I bought mine at the craft store Michaels. I'm sure Hobby Lobby would be another good place to look.

    2. Michael's has the cutest cupcake liners for $1 and sometimes on clearance for 50 cents!!! Best place to buy them if you can.

    1. I think I used about 150 liners. Although I didn't keep track, so it's hard to say for sure!

  40. What sized wreath did you use? I'm afraid regular cupcake liners would be overwhelming if I used too small a wreath.
