Dollar Store DIY Patriotic Cupcake Wreath

When it comes to patriotic holidays, I try and keep it simple and elegant. And as my love of wreaths is well known, I had to share this adorable Dollar Store DIY Patriotic Cupcake Cup Wreath! You can find everything at your local Dollar store generally, but if they’re out of stock or far away, you can just as easily find them in your local craft store or order them online. Utilizing burlap ribbon and cupcake liners, this wreath looks super cute on your front door or even over your mantle.

Start by adding hot glue to the end of the burlap ribbon. Press it to the inside of the wreath form and hold in place until dry and secure. Begin wrapping the burlap ribbon around the wreath form. Slightly overlap as you wrap and pull tightly to avoid any gapping or creases. Continue wrapping until the entire wreath is covered with the burlap. When you get to the end of the ribbon, add another line of glue and press the end to the inside of the wreath. This will give it a clean finish.

Beginning stages of Dollar Store DIY Patriotic Cupcake Wreath

Take your cupcake cups and turn them inside out so the coloring/design is more visible.

Open cupcake liners

Pinch the center of the cups (grabbing from the bottom) so the cupcake ups roushe up and create a flower or ruffle effect. Flatten the cupcake cups out before gluing in place. Add a dab of glue to the spots on the wreath where you wish for the cupcake cup flowers to go. Press one embellishment in place at a time.

Continue layering on the cupcake cups as shown. You can add as little or as many as you wish to get the desired effect. Allow to dry.
