Cupcake Liner Pom~ DIY

I love cupcakes and one of my favorite things about them {other than eating them} is the decorating options ~ including all of the pretty liners you can choose from.  I saw this idea on pinterest and knew I had to try it.  It is in keeping with my “30 Minutes or Less to Fabulous” and cost less than $3.00 to make.  

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.

  12. This is, perhaps, my most slow-pokey week yet. My apologies for taking so long to get over here from “A Little Birdie Told Me..” to enjoy your post. It’s important to me to visit and really give my full attention to all the links, but as the party grows it’s taking more and more time. Thank you so much for bearing with me, and for continuing to share your talent at Rook No. 17!
