Love Fest - DIY Cupcake Pom Poms

Pin It!

I could not wait to start decorating for Valentine's day.
Overnight it went from December to February in our house.
January who?

That being said I could not wait to link up with Hollie
for Love Fest.

I'm always looking for crafts that I can do with cupcake liners
because I have so many of them. 
So when I found this pinterest tutorial I knew I'd be making them in no time.

Cupcake Liner Pom Poms
You'll need: 
-Hot Glue Gun
-Cupcake Liners (at least 100)
-Sewing pins
-Styrofoam ball

1. Take two liners and place a pin through the center 2. Fold/scrunch around the pin 3. Place a tiny bit of hot glue on the tip 4. Push into the styrofoam ball 5. You can "fluff" them as you go (pull them open slightly) 6. I just stuck a pipe cleaner into the top and hung from our chandelier.
So it's super easy but each one took up more time than I had anticipated. I also made a pom pom flower to stick in one of our vases {which can be up in our house all year round and worth the time it took to make it.} 

I cannot wait to see what other Valentine's goodies my crafty friends come up with!

Those look ridiculously cute. And the good kind of homemade {ie lots of love added, but not horribly tacky.}
