Foam Wreath: $3.99
Box of Push Pins: $1.87
Cupcake Liners in Assorted Colors: $0.99 per pack (I bought 5 packs on clearance at Michael's but we didn't use them all)
Glue Gun: $0 (already had)
We set up an assembly line to make it go faster
First, push the pin in to the center of TWO liners. Don't push it all the way in, only about half way.
Holding on the the bottom half of the pin, fold or crinkle the liners however you wish.
(sorry for the not-so-good picture)
Put a dab of glue around the base of the liner and on the pin. Insert the pin into the foam wreath until the glue & liner hit the foam. Push the remaining part of the pin almost all the way into the foam from the inside of the liners. We learned that if you push the pin ALL the way in it is very likely to go all the way through the liners and they will fall off before the glue has a chance to dry. Be careful not to burn yourself! We started around the outside of the wreath and made our way to the inside, filling in any holes at the end.
Final product on the front door! It took us about an hour to complete with the two of us. We took turns folding the liners and doing the gluing. We used about 4 bags of liners with 75 in each bag.
Come On SPRING!
