Cupcake Liner Centerpiece

Cupcake Liner Centerpiece

I love cupcake liners.  There are so many colors to choose from and they make them to match any and every holiday.  I think they are overlooked for their paper crafting  versatility (I’m a bit passionate about cupcakes!).  I saw this idea on pinterest and knew I had to try it.  It cost less than $3.00 to make and took less than 30 minutes.

I went to the Dollar Tree and purchased a 4″ styrofoam ball and a package of 24 cupcake liners with 24 picks.  I wasn’t sure if I was going to use the picks or not but these were the only cupcake liners they had…so that’s what I bought.

I had an urn that I white washed with a pink tint a few years ago and used that as the base for my bouquet.  I placed the styrofoam ball in the urn and used a Sharpie to mark the area that needed to be covered.  

I separated my liners and started.  

I folded each liner in half, and then in half again several times until I had a tight ‘v’.  

I then flared the liner open and placed my finger inside moving it to the bottom.  I placed some hot glue on the bottom and started placing the ‘flowers’ on to the ball.  The original tutorial I saw recommended using pins to hold the flowers in place and I did this with the first few but then tried it without and it worked just as well for me.  

After covering the ball approximately halfway, my bouquet was finished.

I added some of the heart picks to mine and will remove these once Valentine’s Day is over and just leave this as a nice spring centerpiece.  And there you have it!
