DIY: Candy Cupcake Toppers
by Chakrika Ratra
Now that spring is almost here, what’s a better way to prepare for it than to make cupcakes? Well, no cupcake is complete without a zest of designing that truly shows the meaning of spring. This easy and short DIY will show you how to transform drab cupcakes into complete fab. Let’s get started!!!
Step 1: Gather all your materials:
Small styrofoam balls 1″ in size or smaller.
Cut a piece of crepe paper; make sure it’s long enough to go around the styrofoam ball and wide enough to make the “wrapping ends”.
Glue the middle of the styrofoam ball.
Roll the paper around the ball, by placing the styrofoam ball in the middle of the crepe paper. After doing so, set aside, and let it dry a while.
Tie the ends with sewing thread and cut off excess thread.
If the ends are too long, cut off to desired length and “fluff” the ends.
Dip a cocktail stick in the craft glue, and insert it inside the styrofoam ball. Make sure to wait a couple of minutes before proceeding to doing anything, so that the glue has time to dry.
