Valentines' Cupcake Liner Wreath

Here is a little Cupcake Liner Wreath Tutorial!  I wanted to do something for Valentine's coming up and saw this floating around somewhere in blog land and knew I could tackle that!  Love how it turned out!





Here is what you need:
Valentine's cupcake liners ( I used 3 different colors)
Scrapbooking flower stickers (Michaels)
small Styrofoam round wreath
Ribbon
Hot glue gun


1. Fold the liner in half


2. Fold again, and then fold the very tip (look at pic)


Here is another angle of  step 2


3. Put a dot of hot glue on the folded tip and start lining the wreath.  If you notice in the above picture, I line them up in random rows of 3.


4. To make the "flower" just take a liner and flatten out. I hot glued this directly to the wreath.  I tried to place it on top of the liners but it just never looked right.



Here is a close up of the "flower" I also folded a different color liner in half and place it directly under the flat liner.  I use 2 folded white liners to create a sort of border.


Then I took the scrapbooking flowers and placed them directly in the center of the "flower".



I took some polka dot red ribbon and used florist pins to attach it to the back of the wreath.  Then just used a command strip on the back of the door to secure it.


Voila!!  I placed all the white in one section, all the pink together, and then all the red.  You can only tell if you get right up on it.  But, I'm very happy with it.  I think it is sweet!



I don't have much Valentine's decor, but I love what I have.  Hope you enjoy these few pictures!



Do you see that ratty kitty kat doll holding the heart?  She is 20 years old and was my very FIRST Valentine's gift from my Man!  I've kept her all these years and I always set her out.  He brought me that and a box of chocolates.  He was so cute!  Aw, to be 16 and just falling in love again.  I love that memory, but I love right now too!



I got this little LOVE glittered sign in the $1 section of Michael's last year.  Score!



I love the colors and the painted flower on this vintage chocolate box. 


 Old cards and postcards are little works of art to me.  This is one of my favorite Valentine cards I found.  It is from 1942!



So, there you have it!  Hope you go out and make you a Cupcake Wreath, because it was super duper easy!  Have a great weekend!

  3. Very cute wreath and a fun time making it.

    On Valentine's Day when I was a child I remember so fondly my Daddy buying my mother a large red heart shaped box of candy and my sister and I the smaller size version of the same red heart box. I wish I had that box now!

    I also remember our elementary teachers making beautiful boxes from hat boxes and decorating them for the class to put their valentine cards in.

    Thank you for taking me down memory lane with your darling wreath.
    I must get out some decorations myself.
