Instructions:

1. Invite your little one to paint the paper plate ring green and set it aside to dry.

2. While waiting, fold your green cupcake liners in half to create leaves.

3. Take the remaining cupcake liners and turn them inside out so the colours are on the inside of the cups.  Cut along the tops of the cupcake liners with a wavy line so they look more like flowers.

4. Now you’re ready to assemble your wreath!  Start off by gluing your cupcake liner leaves around the paper ring so they stick over the outside edge.

5. Glue your cupcake flowers around the paper ring. If you'd like, add a second layer to each cupcake liner in order to create some depth.

6. Jazz up your flowers by adding a button or a couple of sequins in the middle of each.

7. Finish the project by attaching a small loop of ribbon onto the back of the paper ring.

8.  Allow your wreath to fully dry and then hang it on your door for all to enjoy!
