Birthday Wreath!

It is that time of year!! The time when I am both elated and annoyed that my daughter is going to be another year older!

Avery’s birthday is next week which means we have a birthday party coming up- and you know that is going to be an affair! I want to meet people at the door with the theme and colors and what better way to do that than a wreath?!

Avery is going with a Jake and the Neverland Pirates theme this year and since I don’t have the characters, that is a rather difficult thing to translate into a wreath. Instead, I thought that I would go with the colors and make a quick and easy cupcake liner wreath. I love making wreaths, like it is up there with one of my favorite forms of crafting- so fun!

This one is simple but I am really happy with the way it came out! I gathered up the supplies which included cupcake liners in two colors (Wilton has a ton to choose from), I chose black polka dot and white, and a wreath form. These straw forms are great and affordable, just remember not to take the plastic off!

To start the wreath, I fold the liners in half, run a line of hot glue down the flat end and then glue it on the form. I do two of each color next to each other to make sure the form is covered and then I did the next color. I continued until it was done, the end is always a little awkward with the overlap- but that is where you add the ribbon or tulle to hang it so it covers all that up.

Next, I added a yo-yo with a number 4 in the middle because my baby is going to be 4 years old! Yo-yo’s are easy, you just take two pieces of paper and fold them accordion style (you know, like how we used to make fans back in the day), glue them together and then fold and glue those ends together. I added a black circle in the middle and then a 4 on top- done!

This is just the start of many posts to distract me from the fact that I have a 4 year old!
