Check it Out! I have no Valentine's Day decorations. I'm not kidding, not one! So when thinking of what I could craft for this week I decided it was time to make myself something with a Valentine's theme. I don't have a lot to work with in this area but I found these great cupcake liners marked down to $1.00 and I loved the patterns so I made a wreath using them a few other materials.
My materials for this craft included:
- 1 pack of cupcake liners
- 1 styrofoam round wreath
- 3 heart picks
- 1 button
- Hot Glue
- Sequin pins
- 1 XXL Glue Dot
To create this wreath I folded my liners in half and flattened them. I had 2 patterns of liners so I decided that I would alternate them.
Since I wasn't sure exactly how I was gonna pull the covering of the wreath off, I used sequin pins. I did this for 2 reasons, so I could move the liners if needed and so the styrofoam wreath didn't become distorted from the heat of hot glue.
I laid the liners across the wreath and then layered them to cover the wreath. Using the sequin pins to hold the liners on the bottom, one on each corner.
To create the back border I glued the flattened liners along the edge of the wreath. I again alternated the patterns. I used my glue gun on low temp and had to add a bead of glue to keep the liners closed.
I spaced the liners so that my pattern looked like a scalloped edge. It looked really plain so I grabbed some lace that I had lying around to use on the inside.
To add the lace I used the sequins that were already holding my liners in place. I simply pulled out the pin, added the lace and repinned. I did this all the way around the inside of the wreath.
To create the flower I took one liner, flattened it. I applied my XXL Glue Dot to the center and added 5 folded liners with the points to the center. I fluffed it up a bit and added a button to the center. I also added some ribbon and my heart picks to finish it off.
