This mothers day wreath was so easy to make. Just buy a bunch of cupcake liners and the best place to buy bulk is online. I grabbed these ones at the dollar store and I bought 8 packages which was more than enough for a 16″ wreath form. The reason I like these ones is because they are not a true white, they are more of an antique finish and almost have a wax paper consistency.
To begin, take one of your liners and grab the bottom and pull up so that it creates a longer, skinnier liner. Place some glue on your wreath form and quickly add the liners. Repeat this as much as you like. I chose a lot of liners because I want a full wreath but you go for it however full you want it. I also suggest you use the low temperature on your glue gun or else you’ll end up with a lot of burns…just talking about a friend of mine.
You’ll leave a space blank and add your flowers. I grabbed my faux poppies from Michaels and removed them from the stem. I placed quite a bit of glue on the back of the flower and pressed. I began with my flowers and added my leaves as I went to fill in the spaces. Once your flowers are arranged how you like it, add in more liners to complete the look.
Next take some ribbon, I love this muslin ribbon and it matches the antique look I’m going for. You can take long strands and tie them together in the middle so you have a sort of tail looking ribbon or you can take extra tong strands and tie them in a bow. I like the look of flowy ribbons so I did the first option. I think that with this muslin ribbon it looks better the longer it is. Cut the ends on a diagonal and then attach it to your wreath. You can also do this a number of ways by just gluing the knotted part of the ribbon to the underside of the form, you could also tie your ribbon on beforehand and then glue all the liners to the form. Again, this is your project so do it how you like.
Once it’s dry and complete, give it to your mama. I know my mom will love her Mothers Day wreath and its something that looks great all year round. Happy Mothers Day!
