Summer Wreath Using Cupcake Liners

Hi everyone, it’s Courtney with Crafts by Courtney. Today I’m sharing a super easy wreath for summer!

I have a great spot over my entertainment center for my holiday wreaths. I’ve been kinda obsessed with making cupcake liners wreaths, so I thought I would make a fun beach inspired summer wreath.

The best part about this wreath, they are so easy to make. I love that!!


To make this gorgeous wreath, you’re going to need the following items:

  • Foam Wreath
  • Small Cupcake Liners
  • Push Pins
  • Hot Glue Gun
  • Ribbon
  • Starfish

Getting Started

These wreaths are great…my biggest problem was picking out my “mini” cupcake liners. SO MANY OPTIONS!

I ended up finding these cute ones at Wal-Mart for .75 cents a pack. Total bargain! While I was there, I also picked out some turquoise burlap ribbon to match and then headed home to put it all together ๐Ÿ™‚

Kids are napping, so time to get crafting!

Step 1 – Fold Cupcake Liners Over

Your going to need to fold your cupcake liners inside out first.

For this wreath, I used a total of 300 mini cupcake liners. Sounds like a lot, but they go fast. BUT, since I only paid .75 cents for a pack of 50, it was only $4.50 worth of liners. Not too bad right?!?

Step 2 – Add Cupcake Liners

Next, you’re going to add a push pin into the center of your cupcake liner. Then, gently place it into your foam wreath. I scrunched up my cupcake liners a little and placed them closer together.

Step 3 – Add Your Ribbon

Now we need to add our ribbon, so we can hang our wreath up. I just love this turquoise burlap ribbon I found. I will be using it for a few more summer projects for sure!

I placed a couple push pins in to help keep it in place.

Step 4 – Add Your Starfish

Time to add our starfish!!

I pulled out my basket of starfish and found my perfect sizes. Now, add a little hot glue to the back and firmly place on your ribbon.

Finishing Touches

To complete our beachy summer wreath, fill in any bare spots around the ribbon with more cupcake liners and VOILA! Now you’re ready to display!

I ALWAYS love how these wreaths turn out. They look perfect on the old window I have displayed on my made-over entertainment system.

  1. This inspired me so much – I just “inhereited” some turqoise beach style decor, and this will top it off!

  2. hello. You said you used small cupcake liners…as in for mini cupcakes?

    And how large was your foam wreath?

    1. Hi Pat! I checked with Linda and she’s had great success with mod podge and other decoupaging materials. Once it’s sealed and dry, she has had no issues with it outdoors. ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. This is so cute!! Please tell me more about how to fix the ribbon. It looks like its looped…how can you hang it up if its looped? (I’m new to crafting, so maybe I just don’t understand.) Thank You.

  4. Gorgeous! Why would anyone want to BUY a wreath when we can make such beautiful ones so easily? I’d rather make my own anyday. Thanks for sharing – perfect for a summer vignette!

  5. This wreath is so adorable! I love how you make it look summery with the colors and the sea shells but why couldn’t you change it up and make one for fall or Christmas? Where you put the shells you could put fall leaves (I have a ton of laminated real leaves) or snowflakes or holly or tiny christmas balls? If you used snowflakes, you could keep it up all winter not just for Christmas.
    I can’t wait to try it! Thank you for showing it to all of us!ย 

  6. Do you have to turn them inside out. ย  I am using some that are solid red. ย So am not sure if turning the. Inside out would work

    1. If the inside and outside are the same color you don’t need to turn them inside out. With these cupcake liners they needed to be turned inside out so you could see the pattern better. ๐Ÿ™‚

  7. 1) What size wreath?
    2) How long does this take?
    I’m trying to determine if I can do this project with a group, in a limited time period.
    ~Thank you!

  8. This was my very first time visiting your website/blog…and Iโ€™m so glad I did because this wreath is super easy! Iโ€™m going out today with my mother to a local craft store anyway, so Iโ€™ll pick up the items I donโ€™t already have and make two! One for me, and one for mom! Thanks so much for sharing!!!

  9. I live in a Senior community and some one came here a brought these wreaths with here. Some of the wreaths that the ladies made are beautiful and I am going to try and make one myself. I am not artistic but I think I can do one.
