DIY Wreath: Inspired by Starbucks and Disney

DIY Wreath

It’s finally time to deck the halls and trim the trees, and have we got a treat for you! My DIY Sirenbucks Ornament Wreath will help you celebrate with two of our favorite things; Disney and Starbucks!

While perusing the facebook one day, I came across a cute collection of Disney characters as Starbucks logos and have since wanted to find something crafty to make with them. And I’ve finally found the perfect fit! You see, I’d been collecting these little coffee cup stoppers for quite some time and had the idea to make some sort of wreath. I knew I wanted to incorporate candy canes (because naturally my favorite Starbucks drink is a peppermint mocha), but didn’t really have any clear direction until I saw that fb post. It was like a light bulb going off! I can make a Sirenbucks wreath!! “I’ll use an ornament to display the logo and fill it with real coffee beans,” I thought. And after finding the wired ribbon for 70% off at Michael’s I was ready to get this project going.

Directions

Step One: Start by tying a knot securing the wired ribbon to the wreath frame. Create loops with the ribbon by pushing the wired ribbon in-between the wreath frame. Continue creating loops to fluff out until the entire frame is covered. If you aren’t sure how this works, you can refer to this tutorial I found on pinterest.

Step Two: Use a glue gun to secure a coffee stopper to the bottom of each candy cane heart. You’ll be gluing and working from the back until the entire candycane/stopper “snowflake” is secured together. So, once you glue it, be sure to leave it facing down and try not to move them around too much for best results. Continue until you have 6 candy cane hearts.

Step Three: Lay the candy cane hearts together and position stoppers inside the top of the heart so that the ends of the stoppers point inward towards the center of the wreath. Glue and secure the stoppers to the candy canes and the points where the candy cane hearts touch one another. Once dry, you can also add washi tape around where the candy canes touch for a little more security and p’zazz.

Step Four: Find your favorite Disney/Starbucks mashup logo online and print out so that it’s the same diameter as the flat circle on the back of your ornament. Also, my ornament has a diameter of 2.5″.  I liked the Sirenbucks best because Ariel is my girl, but go with whatever is your fav! Then, cut out and glue or mod podge the logo to the back of your ornament. You could also coat the back with some glue from a glue stick and roll it slightly to insert it into the ornament.

Step Five: Add some real coffee beans into your ornament stopping just before the word “coffee” on your logo is covered. Remove the wire hook portion from the ornament top (it won’t be hanging so this is just in the way). With the hook gone, the cap won’t stay on by itself, so add some glue and secure it to the ornament. Add some coordinating washi tape around the top and a cute little bow atop and the ornament is done!

Step Six: Secure the ornament to the ends of the coffee stoppers centering the ornament the way you like it best. Then glue everything down to the ribbon-covered wreath frame. I glued all of the candy canes as well as the stoppers so I wouldn’t have to worry about anything falling off.

Step Seven (optional): Use a glue stick (NOT a hot glue gun!) to glue the Golden Mickeys to the inside of your hearts. Then string the wired lights through and around the wreath. There’s really no set way to do this. Just eyeball it! 🙂 I used the washi tape to secure the little battery pack to the wreath frame. And no one says you have to stop here either! If you’ve got other little knick-knacks that may relate to your design, then add them too! This one would look great with a few little dinglehoppers, a couple of thing-a-ma-bobs, and maybe even a snarfblat!
