Cupcake Liner Wreath- Quick Tutorial

This is hands down my most favorite wreath I have ever made. I feel like it makes a really great statement on the door and I am always happy to see it when I open the door or pull into the driveway. I know that this is nothing new in the blogesphere, but here is what I did.

First, this is the type of wreath I bought- the one that looks like it was put together from a hay bale, because it is half the price of the foam one. The key here is to NOT remove the plastic covering around it, that holds it all together. On second look, because I have a glass door I probably should have wrapped ribbon around it at this stage but oh well, you don’t really notice it. 
 
I used jumbo cupcake liners for mine because I had a bunch around the house- I have read that most others use about 150, I don’t know what I did buy I used much closer to 300. I really though I would use less than that because they were jumbo! Oh well, looks great in the end. 
 
I gathered the liner together and flattened it on the table and then added hot glue to that flat surface. 
 
Then glued it on. 
 
Then I kept going… for what seemed like forever lol. I did four little clumps of them and then joined them together, maybe just to break up the monotony. 
 
 
When I got to the last little section, I hot glued a piece of a ribbon around the wreath and then continued adding liners over it.
Then added a knot at the top of the ribbon and I was done!! SOOO much impact on your front door!
 You could do this a thousand different ways with colored liners that matched a multitude of different holidays. Also, you could do this with coffee filters, paper bags, tissue paper or anything else you can think about.

    I’m doing this. I mean it. I’m doing it and I’m going to LOVE it! I’m the only girl in my house so the only room just for me is my bedroom. It’s my girly sanctuary (sorry DH). I have an 8 yr old boy, 3 yr old twin boys, and my big boy who is also my sweet hubby. I was even the only girl with three brothers growing up.

    This is going to be great. I’m going to make three of these and hang them over my headboard. Awesomeness, here I come!
