The World's Easiest and Foofiest Easter WreathCategory: Cupcake liners, Easter, Handmade Flowers, Recycle Crafts, Tutorial, wreath
Now check out my Easter wreath. Yes, it's a bit foofy, even for me, but sometimes a little foof is a good thing! And it was ridiculously easy. All you need is a few dozen cucake liners, coffee filters, and a stapler.
Start by trimming coffee filters into a flower shapes, then layer on three or four cupcake liners. Staple twice in the middle.
PS: Of the many, many time I have made stuff out of cupckae liners, this is is the first time I have implemented a stapler. But now, after seeing Camilla do it, I feel so stupid I never tried it before. Far easier than anything I ever did with glue or pipe cleaners. Camilla, you're a genius! Y'all have to check out her Easter wreath --I have a box of cocktail umbrellas waiting to go :)
Attach the them to the wreath with pearl-head pins, that way you can pull them out and reuse the wreath base and flowers another time. I think these flowers might end up on a post-Easter lampshade or something. It's too pretty to stuff in a closet with the eggs. Why can't we have Easter year round?
