DIY Cupcake Liner Wreath Tutorial

This was SO much fun, and really inexpensive!!!!

DIY Cupcake Liner Wreath Tutorial

 

Step 1.  Prep your wreath by wrapping it with the scrap fabric.   Use the hot glue to hold the ends down.DIY Cupcake Liner Wreath Tutorial

 

Step 2. Grab a liner and fold it in half.  Use pinking shears to cut slits about 1/2″ apart.  Only cut the ruffled sides-leave the bottom intact.DIY Cupcake Liner Wreath Tutorial

 

Step 3. Take a single prepared liner and start to roll it up.DIY Cupcake Liner Wreath Tutorial

 

Use a dab of hot glue to hold the end down.  Wrap a 2nd liner around the 1st, again using hot glue to hold the edges.DIY Cupcake Liner Wreath Tutorial

 

Add the 3rd liner.  Fluff out the petals with your fingers, and you have a flower!DIY Cupcake Liner Wreath Tutorial

 

Step 4.  Take a prepared flower and fold the end down.DIY Cupcake Liner Wreath Tutorial

BUT WAIT!    What if you have a hole?????   DIY Cupcake Liner Wreath Tutorial

 

Yup—I was short about 2 flowers.   And Michael’s is 30 minutes away. Sooo……I grabbed the mini’s that came with the big ones!DIY Cupcake Liner Wreath Tutorial

 

Step 5.  Fold them in half, then into quarters.  Be careful to not flatten them!  You need the bend.DIY Cupcake Liner Wreath Tutorial

 

Lay 3 of them out in a half circle and hot glue.   Lay another 3, and then attach the 2 halves.DIY Cupcake Liner Wreath Tutorial

 

(by the way, can I tell you about the love/hate relationship my fingers have with hotglue????)DIY Cupcake Liner Wreath Tutorial

 

Take 1 more mini and wrap it like you did for the first flower.  Bend the edge and glue it in.  DONE!DIY Cupcake Liner Wreath Tutorial

 

Attach to your wreath in those holes!!    I didn’t like how mine blended in…..DIY Cupcake Liner Wreath Tutorial

Add your fancy doodads and hot glue a length of fabric or ribbon to use as a hanger….DIY Cupcake Liner Wreath Tutorial

 

And you are done!!!DIY Cupcake Liner Wreath Tutorial

 

Just look how sweet!!   And the TEXTURE!!DIY Cupcake Liner Wreath Tutorial

 

Mom suggested using foil liners, so they’d sparkle……oh boy!   I need a MardiGras Wreath!!!

This project cost me under $10.   The 3 packs of liners and the butterfly were $1 each, the form was about $4, and I went through a small bag of hot glue sticks.   The fabric was dug from the scrap bag.  I’m sure a foil liner wreath will cost more, as will a bigger one (obviously)  Other options are to only partly cover the form with liners, and use something else.   Kind of like this Christmas wreath that I made in 2012.Christmas Rag Wreath

 

So many amazing ideas.   Ya’ll take this and run with it.   Email me a pic; post to my FB page; let me know what you think of the tutorial!!   Good Luck!!!
