Spring Cupcake Liner Flower Garland
- Cupcake liners
- Hot glue gun/glue sticks
- Washi Tape(s)
Cutting the Flowers
- Flatten out 8-10 cupcake liners and staple in the middle.
- Fold the liners in half to make a half circle. Cut a slit in the two folded side edges just until you reach the edge of the cupcake liner bottom.
- Fold the liners in half again into a pie shape and cut the uncut edge to the liner bottom.
- Open the cupcake liner to the half circle. There should be cuts on the side and center of the liner. Next, evenly space out two more cuts between the side and center cuts. There should be seven cuts total.
Shaping the Flowers
- Open the liners up back to a circle.
- With the printed side facing up, take the top liner and scrunch/pinch it up to the center. Repeat this with each liner to form a flower. Make as many cupcake liner flowers as needed.
- Tip – Only pinch near the bottom or near the stapler. This will keep the flower edges nice and crisp.
Putting it Together
- Measure out the length of string needed to make your garland. Tie loops on the ends to hang the garland.
- Glue one cupcake liner flower to each end of the string and one in the center.
- Tip – I do this while the garland string is hanging in place. This gives me a better idea of where to place the flowers as rope tends to twist out of place when laying flat.
- Tip – Unless the flower backs are resting against something (wall or shelf), they will tip forward. So, if you are hanging in a place where there is no back support, make a complete cupcake ball by gluing the cupcake flowers back to back.
- For the center flower, make a separate string loop. Cut and glue onto the back of the cupcake flower.
- To fill in the space between each cupcake liner flower, fold strips of washi tape around the string. I made strips about 5 inches long, which left me with 2 1/2″ washi tape ‘flags’. The length of your garland will determine how many washi tape ‘flags’ to place evenly on the string.
- Cut a chevron shape at the end of each washi tape ‘flag’.
Super easy, right?! The spring cupcake liner flower garland is done and ready to hang!
I paired it with another craft stash item, a mini pom pom trim, to complete the look. My dining area vignette isn’t quite done yet, but I think it’s off to a good start.
I hope you enjoyed this super easy project. I love these cupcake liner flowers so much that I plan on doing more projects with them, so stay tuned!
