I have been on a paper crafting kick lately so when I spotted these cupcake wrappers and picks at the Dollar Tree I knew I would use them for crafting and not backing!
I still need to whitewash the mirror that goes with this dresser. It looks so awful in photos:(
I made the coffee filter wreath to go with it all to help keep it toned down. The best part is all the 4th of July stuff on the wreath is temporary so I can use it year round! Love, Love!
I cut the wrappers into squares and than cut slits into the middle without going all the way to the middle. You will than fold in one corner at a time into the middle until you create a pinwheel.
Put a pin in the middle to hold it all together and I reused the picks I cut off of the flag picks to pin into the wreath with stick tack. Worked like a charm, I can just pull them out when the 4th of July is over.
I even cut down the liners and added them to doilies for another banner.
Love the blue mason jar mugs from Target...scored those for a $1.48 each:)
Reused the little pieces of wrappers to go around a painted can.
I even used up the little pieces triangle from cutting the flag picks down for more mini pinwheels. I don't think I put anything into the trash on this one.
If you accordion fold the liners and glue two of them together you'll get that cute flower shaped paper wheel.
Crazy how many different things I was able to make out of half a package of cupcake wrappers and picks for $1!!
