Love me a Cupcake {garland}

I LOVE cupcakes!  I also may have a problem with buying packages of cupcake liners just because they are cute.  When I was brainstorming what I was going to create for my Valentines mantle, I remembered seeing  garlands on Pinterest made out of Cupcake liners.  How perfect for my {SWEET} mantle theme!

Sweet Valentines Mantle

Naturally, I did not look up any of the garlands I had seen…Rather I just jumped right in (with the help of my 5-year old).  I use the term “help” loosely on this one.  Really, he just likes any opportunity to use my crafting supplies and tools.

It took me a couple tries to get it the way I like it, but the end result is pretty stinkin’ cute…If I do say so myself!

So Simple and Sweet Garlands

What you’ll need:

Cupcake liner garland- so easy!


{cupcake liners, thread, twine or hemp, decorative beads}

How I made mine:

1. Poke holes in a few cupcake liners.

2. Leaving a length of twine for hanging, tie a knot on the twine.

3. Thread a bead onto the twine.

4. Thread a cupcake liner on to the twine.

5. Approximately two inches past the liner, tie another knot.

6. Repeat the pattern: knot, bead, liner until you have the length of garland you need.

Note: Cupcake liners are from Michaels dollar bin, Beads are from JoAnns and twine is from Close To My Heart.  I had all on hand…great thing about this project!  Use what you have.
