Valentine’s Cupcake Wrapper Wreath

Happy Monday!

I recently made this little project after some inspiration from various other online examples. It was surprisingly easy to make, and only too me about 1 1/2 hours, and cost about $15. I would say that for that time and money, it’s way better than some cheesy heart-laden wreath, don’t you agree?

What you’ll need:

1 flower foam wreath thing (you know, those green rings you find in the fake flower section at Michael’s. I’m sure they have a real name but…this is all I’ve got).
Approximately 150 cupcake wrappers, depending on how full you want your wreath to be.
Wide ribbon to wrap the foam wreath (I bought red for this).
Hot glue (low heat)

What you do:

Wrap the foam with ribbon, hot gluing occasionally to hold it in place.

Start gluing sections of cupcake wrappers. I recommend folding each wrapper into 8ths, and gluing about 10 at a time. I only glued the tips, as close together as I could, and they formed into nice little pom-pom shapes. Let them cool before you try gluing any more in their space.

Once I got all the way around, I was liking how it looked so I only added a few more wrappers to each section. I didn’t feel like it needed to have every inch covered, so I stopped when I liked how it looked. Plus, I suck at hot glue and my fingers were starting to get mad at me…so I called it quits.

What do you think?
