DIY Cupcake Liner Wreath

Did you know that cupcake liners aren’t just for cooking? Oh yes! They can be used to create the most beautiful cupcake liner wreaths! And guess what? I am ready to give you the scoop to this DIY project.

This cupcake liner wreath project was a huge hit with my 7 year old daughter. She is very much into baking right now; creations of all kinds are mixed up in our kitchen and all without following a recipe. Some turn out fabulous and others are chalked up to a learning experience. But, I love that she is so interested in creating in the kitchen with her apron and cooking hat.

For this project, if you want to wear a stylish apron go ahead, but it’s definitely not required.

Remove the bottom of the cupcake liners with a scissors by cutting through the side of the liner and then around the entire bottom.

Now it is time to sit in front of the TV during your favorite show and roll the sides as shown above. These will form into small florets. Glue the end closed on each one.

Start designing your flowers. There were various patterns and shades of liners in the packages. This made it simple to create unique individual flowers.

Choose your middle floret and then hot glue 6 others around the middle floret.

Once you have enough flowers to fill the perimeter of the grapevine wreath, select where each flower will be placed on the wreath.

Hot glue the flowers on the top of the wreath.

Add your choice of lace or bakers twine for hanging. You now have a sweet little wreath for decorating. The great part of this project is that it is very kid-friendly. Kiddos can cut the liners and then roll the florets. I would recommend that an adult do the hot gluing. I have burned my fingers many a times and it is not fun.

    • Jenny, thank you so much. I really can’t wait to make more. There are so many cool patterns in cupcake liners, so coordinating it with your home decor should be pretty easy.

    • Thank you so much Brittany! I appreciate that you love it and are willing to pin the project. Have a great week.

  1. What a fantastic idea:-)
    Love it, but I bet it was a hell of a work to make this wreath:-)
    Greetings from Poland:-)

    • Anita, wow…Poland! Thanks for taking time to visit me here. I will not lie, it did take some time to roll the wreath florets, but when you have a few little helpers and a good TV show, it goes relatively quick. Have a great week.

  2. This is so cute! And it would look so perfect on my interior kitchen door! Question: was this a full-size grapevine wreath or a smaller one? Thanks for the tutorial, it’s easy to follow ~


    • Mary, it was a smaller one….maybe around 8″ or so. It was not a full size wreath. I hope that helps.

  3. I am absolutely in love with this wreath project! How very creative! Thanks so much for sharing at my Creative Ways Link Party! I hope you’ll be back to share this week!

    • Kathy, yes, you have to try them out. Get some little helpers to roll the florets for you. Thanks so much for sharing.

  4. This is such an amazing idea! Thanks for sharing it. I’m Anita visiting from Link Party Palooza.

    • Kelli, you can definitely create this wreath! It is overall pretty simple. That wreath hook is calling for some attention….fall is right around the corner, find some fun liners with a fall theme/color. Good luck!

  5. Such a sweet wreath! Love the colors for a baby shower or girly garden party. Shared it on my Sweet & Stylish Baby Shower / Birthday board on Pinterest 🙂

  6. So cute! I love the designs you picked of the cupcake liners! I was just thinking of making a new wreath and I will be pinning this for inspiration!

  10. Wow, this is a fantastic idea. I would have never thought of using cupcake liners to make a wreath but this is gorgeous. Thank you for sharing your beautiful project.

  11. This is so stinking cute. I’d never guess that it’s made with cupcake liners. So creative. Thanks for sharing!

  12. I have a couple of questions for you. I can’t believe how cute this is and that its cupcake liners. They definitely don’t look like cupcake liners. I know I could make this.
    Here are my questions. Do you have to use a glue gun? Can’t you just use Aileen’s glue in a bottle? I ask because like you I have burned my fingers on a glue gun and I’d like to eliminate that problem. Also, glue guns leave a lot of strings that look sloppy and you have to get rid of. I don’t want to do that.
    Do you have to use a grapevine wreath? I think a styrofoam wreath is nice and it’s cheaper, plus I can get a small one like I did for another wreath project. I don’t want a big one as I would like to hang it in our living room. We have a wall it would look good on.
    Thank you for showing us this and I can’t wait to make one!

    • Gail, I would think that you could definitely use Aileen’s glue. I used a glue gun because I wanted the pieces to dry quickly. Yes, I did have strings of glue that I needed to pull off. No, you do not need to use a grapevine wreath. I just liked the contrast. I am sure a styrofoam wreath would work just fine. I do know that the dollar store does have grapevine wreaths, so can be done very inexpensively. Let me know how it works out for you.
