Cupcake Liner Wreath

I got so accustomed to having a wreath on the front door during the holidays when it was time to take it down I immediately began thinking of how I could make one for Valentine's Day.  Watching HGTV one night I saw these pretty round lanterns made from cupcake liners.  It seemed to me if you could make lanterns with cupcake liners you should be able to make a wreath too.  I got in touch with one of my closest and dearest friends, google, and in no time flat I set to work on my wreath.  It was super easy and I am very pleased with the way it turned out.

Here's what I did if you want to make one yourself:

I used a Styrofoam wreath (14x2 - 1/2x2" Beveled) and some wide red ribbon.

I wrapped the Styrofoam wreath with the ribbon, securing it with hot glue.

Next, I folded my cupcake liners like little flowers.
Then I used my glue gun and lots of hot glue to attach them to the wreath.  I worked in little bunches and then went back and filled in.

I used ribbon to make a loop for hanging.

After I put the loop on I added more cupcake liners on top of it.
I hung it on the front door and I love it!
