I am starting to get geared for Easter. It’s a couple weeks away and I love the fresh start this season brings. The newness. A restored hope. It just couldn’t come sooner for me!
This past week has been a roller coaster of emotions. When I get stressed or start to think too much about things I have no control over, I find some quiet time while the kids nap and do a little craft. It helps get my mind off of my crazy life and focus on a task. It just so happens to be fun! I decided to make a very simple DIY: a cupcake liner easter bouquet!
What you will need
Cupcake liners (I got these cute easter ones at Target)
Stems (real or fake – I used some LED light branches I picked up a while back from Michael’s)
This is such an easy project! Take a cupcake liner and pierce a small hole in the center with a pen or the top of your branch. Carefully begin to fold your liner in half a couple times until you start to form the shape of a flower. My cupcake liners came with large scalloped edges, which gave my flowers the illusion of petals. If your liners are straight edged, you can simply use scissors to scallop the edges yourself! Once you have the shape you are looking for, you can use tape to secure the bottoms of the liners to the branch to make sure it doesn’t come unravelled.
I love this colorful paper bouquet! The patterns are great and add a little something extra to the overall look. Since my branches have LED lights, it creates a fun look in the evening as well. I added a touch of baby’s breath to my faux bouquet to give it more texture and I am happy with how it turned out!
What do you think about this simple cupcake liner easter bouquet? Would you sport something like this on your dining room table during the holidays?
