Hello to all you Momless Mom readers! I’m really excited and honored to be contributing to Vinma’s blog today! Vinma is a wonderful colleague in the blogging world. She’s one of the most dedicated bloggers that I have met and I am very thankful that she has given me the opportunity to contribute with a guest post. Thanks Vinma! I hope you enjoy this super fun little party project that you can use for this upcoming Halloween! These Halloween candy shaped cupcake toppers are very simple to elaborate and will add a super cute not-too spooky touch to your Halloween cupcakes!
Here’s what you will need to make your candy shaped cupcake toppers:
1 inch foam balls
• Halloween themed paper napkins
• White Glue
• Glue Sticks
• Curling Ribbon
• Tissue Paper (Optional: You can substitute the paper napkins with tissue paper.)
Cut your paper napkins into 4 strips, using the width of the napkins and cutting them about 4 inches apart.
You should end up with about 8 strips per napkin. Exact measurements are not required. The key is to cut your paper napkins in strips that will cover your 1 inch foam ball.
Use your glue stick to spread glue around the entire 1 inch foam ball, then lay it on your paper napkin.
Roll your paper napkin snuggly around your foam ball and then place a small piece of tape at the end of your wrap.
Take two pieces of your curling ribbon and tie the two ends of your napkins as close as you can to the foam ball. Proceed to cut off any excessive curling ribbon. Also, cut off any excessive napkin to create your candy shapes.
Dip a toothpick in your white glue and carefully insert it into your candy shaped foam ball. Wipe off excessive glue and set them aside to dry.
That’s it! You are now ready to style your yummy cupcakes with your cute candy shaped toppers!
I hope you enjoyed this DIY party craft as much as I enjoyed putting it together for you! If you like to party, I’m your best friend ! Visit me over at Seshalyn’s Party Ideas for more DIY Party Crafts, party recipes, party ideas and party fun! Hope to see you there! -Glenda
