Valentine DIY: Easy Cupcake Liner Wreath


Happy Friday everyone! My mom told me about these cupcake liner wreaths last year and I finally got around to making one. I love that it is an inexpensive and easy way to add a pop of color during the Valentine's season!




The materials you need are listed above. Ilined wreath with fabric first in case I decide to hang it on a mirror above the fireplace later. Next, I took a cupcake liner and folded it together to make a little flower. Then using my glue gun I added them all over the top flat side of the wreath in clusters to give the glue time to cool before adding into tight places. From there I filled in the clusters, the inside rim and the top of the wreath.

I love the way it turned out but will say that in the future I will stay away from liners with black in them. It made the inside of the wreath look too dark in my living room so now its happy home is my French door that gets more sunlight. Another tip is to stay away from lining the wreath with felt. I had a ton leftover from another project and started off with it on the wreath but the glue sticks so much better to cotton fabric.

I hope you'll try this easy Valentine's DIY and post a link when you are finished!


Isla says Happy Valentine's everyone! This is my first and I am so looking forward to February!
