Whimsical Cupcake Wreath

So I was inspired today by a DIY project on Tatertots and Jello's blog. She is on my bloglist so feel free to check her out! I know Valentines Day is creeping up but I couldn't resist trying this project because my front door was bare until today.

 I started with a Styrofoam circle from Michaels, and began by wrapping it with Costco's red ribbon

Here it is completely wrapped

I then used these cupcake liners from Sur La Table to decorate the front. 

I squeezed the liners in half and then began hot glueing in groups onto the ribbon, fluffing as I went.

 Cupcake liners done, only took 120. Haha next time I will find cheaper ones but I couldn't resist the polka dot pattern

I then added a felt xoxo sign that I found at Michaels and embellished with red and white polka dot ribbon. I made a white flower also out of cupcake liners and put a red button in the center.

Our new festive front door!
I had a blast doing this project and was happy with how it turned out! Thank you Jen for the inspiration. I think the fun projects have just begun!


  1. This is so cute... I love it! Great work Miss :) I saw another project using cupcake liners as well... it made cute table decorations. Same idea behind what you did but then you put the ball on a wide candle stand or something and it's like this fluffy cute ball. haha. you know what I mean. They attached their cupcake liners with pins... what did you use?

  2. I found what blog I saw it on.. they have lots of cute ideas and tutorials as well. The Party Dress.

    Just scroll down to find the Cupcake Liner Pomander :)

  3. Thanks Jaimie-Rose I love new blogs and new ideas! I used a hot glue gun to glue each oneon. It worked really well. Pins, I will have to check that out. Thanks for all your input!
