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.
Supplies you will need:

- *grapevine wreath
- *cupcake liners-I used 2 packages of Martha Stewart mini’s
- *bakers twine or lace
- craft glue and hot glue
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.
