4th of July Cupcake Liner Wreath

Jun 28, 2012

This craft can almost be completed 100% by a 4 year old. This a good thing because it allowed The Princess to have control and she really did feel like she had created something beautiful.

The bad thing?

A 4 year old had complete control.

What started as a plan for a red, white, and blue 4th of July wreath turned into a wreath for her bedroom painted in her favorite colors. It is of course pink, purple, and blue. I have no idea why I even have other paint colors in my house. Unless of course I use them to make pink, purple, and blue in the event that we run out. So, use your imagination and try to picture the wreath in traditional 4th of July colors. Or let your children make it in their favorite colors and call it a firework wreath. Whatever works.

I saw this wreath last year in a parent ing magazine as a spring wreath and knew The Princess would love it. I have no idea what the original directions were so I made them up as we went and tried to create something similar.

You will need:
Cupcake liners
Mini cupcake liners
Paper plate

Paint cupcake holders desired color. The end result is better if you don't flatten then completely while painting. Allow to dry.

Cut center out of paper plate, leaving you with a ring (this is the only step I helped with because she couldn't cut the center out without going through the sides). Glue larger cupcake liners around rim of plate. 

Next, glue mini liners inside large.
