DIY Christmas Wreath

Tis the season for holiday shopping. I thought it was time to update my wreath on my door, so off to the mall I went. After the 4th store I went into and saw the really expensive door wreath I decided a) I can make this myself  and b) I can do this for way less than the ones I saw at the store. Plus lets be real I love a fun DIY project, this took me a few hours and I loved the way it turned out so much I made two. 

Materials Used:

  1. Wreath used is a 28”.
  2. Ribbon used is 35 ft. or ½ roll of Mesh Ribbon
  3.  I used apple picks but you can use any of our cute picks. 


  1. Wind 4” mesh ribbon around wreath connecting the ribbon on the wire branches every 6 Inches, while you loop the ribbon around the wreath.
  2. Place 12 apple picks or 12 of any other decoration you wish around the wreath and fluff until you are happy.

DIY Cupcake gifts

With the Holidays around the corner I am on the hunt for easy DIYs to give as gifts. I have been obsessed with Soda pop cupcakes (directions on the blog) I have made the cupcakes a TON lately and every time people have asked for my recipe.  So finally it clicked, what a perfect DIY that is less than a dollar and super cute. 


First the supplies needed:

Boxed cake mix

Cans of pop

Tags http://www.creativepackaging.ca/collections/accessories-specialty-items?page=5

Ribbon http://www.creativepackaging.ca/collections/ribbon

Cardboard bottom bags in 2 sizes I used 4x8 and 6x12 http://www.creativepackaging.ca/collections/confectionary-bags



   1.Measure 1/2 of the boxed cake mix into the smaller cardboard bottom bag.

 2. Tie it up 

 3. Put a can of soda and the cake mix in the larger cardboard bottom bag. 

 4. Add the directions on the tag (I just 1/2 the directions from our blog http://www.creativepackaging.ca/blogs/creative-crafts) tie with a ribbon and tada!!!


I used 1/2 the box so it goes twice as far, you can also add topping or filling for your cupcakes and get as fancy as you want. I wanted to keep it simple and keep my cost down. I hope you make and love the cupcakes as much as I do.
