One of our favorite party decorations are cupcake toppers. They make cupcakes or other food “instant-party ready”. Most of the parties we do, have a theme and the cupcake toppers are like the extra cherry on top…. Most of the time, we design the cupcake toppers and wrappers to go along with the theme. They just need to be cut out, glued together and they are ready to party….
Crafty Friday – DIY Confetti Cupcake Toppers – soooooooooooooo cute
Not all of our toppers are round, we like to use shapes, glitter and embellishments too. There are so many options. Some of my most favorite toppers we made are the ones for the French Chic Elegant wedding set. The way they sparkle, I love it….
Available in our etsy store:
Our next wedding set will be a pink rose set, which is already in the works. We have been busy creating and crafting things that go along with the theme…. One of the crafts, are coffee filter roses, which will also be featured in one of the next crafty Fridays. Because we had some dyed coffee filters leftovers in all hues of pink and some orang that we didn’t want to throw away, we came up with the confetti cupcake toppers. essentially it could be also done with tissue paper or any other kind of paper, but we wanted to use our leftovers.
– dyed and colored paper or dyed coffee filters
– construction paper
– stencils or circle punch
– embellishments like tulle, diamonds, crepe paper, lace, feathers etc.
This is a pretty fast craft, which is perfect for making with kids. It would be lovely to make some toppers for a birthday of someone special and to involve the kids this way.
We folded several layers (three) of coffee filters 3 times (as many times as you want to still be able to cut through) and fringed one end. The next step was to cut the fringes off to make small confetti pieces. The more shades of color, the prettier the confetti….
We started by adding glitter to the confetti to give it extra sparkle. Punch out circles with the circle punch or use a stencil and cut them out. Spread a thin layer of glue and dip the circle into the confetti. After the circles have dried, you might need to cut some extra confetti off. Glue the sticks on the back and let dry completely.
Voila, you just made a cupcake topper. They are pretty awesome like this, but we do like to embellish them even more and used crepe paper, diamonds, glitter, tulle and feathers to make them even more spectacular. We also wrapped the cupcakes in crepe paper for a quick and cute wrapper.
Do you like them, but don’t want to have the time or patience, we do sell these cupcake toppers here:
And what is better than a cupcake with a cupcake topper? A cupcake with THREE cupcake toppers. It was a joke, but it actually looks AWESOME. So now, let me have a cupcake….
