Wreath Weak guest post -Lolly Jane

Hi Sassy Style readers!
We are twin sisters Kelli & Kristi from Lolly Jane.

Our little corner of blogland is filled with for home improvement tips, craft tutorials, holiday decor, recipes and a good before&after or two.  We love how small touches of decor can customize a space and instantly make it yours.


Today we'll be showing off our Halloween ruffle wreath.  This dainty little Halloween wreath came to us during a blooper craft attempt, actually.


We were trying to create a scrunchy, full wreath from cupcake liners for our Elmer's krazy glue challenge last month but quickly learned it didn't stick to the liners {d'oh!} so we busted out the Elmers fabric & paper glue instead and played around with them until we created this:

We had never seen a cupcake liners look like this type of ruffle so Kelli patted me on the back for creating this.  Thanks, Kell :)  Anyway it was super easy to make but somewhat time consuming... lots of cutting and well worth it, I think!


You can make this with just a few simple supplies:



  • 1 pk. Halloween cupcake liners
  • Flat wooden wreath form ($2 @ Michaels)
  • Sticky craft glue (we used Elmer's)
  • Scissors and a fun partner to keep you sane ;)


To make this you will need to cut the center of the liner out:



And then get to wrapping:

1. Glue the liner to the back of wreath.
2. Wrap the liner around the wreath...
3. Keep wrapping...
4. ...until you have a little liner tail.
5. Add a dab of glue to the liner tail.
6. Press until it's sturdy.


Then repeat, repeat, repeat until you have a pile of cut liners that go from this to that:

Now to bling it out Halloween style :)


Just add tulle, strips of festive ribbon, punched out numbers {download  here} and a cute tag {download here.}



Hang and enjoy!

Happy Halloween!!





We would love to see you on FB, Twitter or Pinterest :)
THANK YOU to cute Tausha for letting us join her party!
XOXO


Thanks so much Girlies!
If you haven't thought of cupcake liners for a wreath, we will be running to the store together!

Come back tomorrow to hang out with Desiree from 36th Avenue!
