Independence Day is quickly sneaking up on us and if cupcakes will be making an appearance at your festivities, I’ve got some adorable and simple toppers that will elevate your cupcakes to extraordinary. These were created with items available in the craft aisle of any store and are so simple, even the youngest patriots can lend a hand!
1. “Banging” Toppers: These simple toppers are made from lollipop sticks and sparkly pipe cleaners. This look was created by twisting together the pipe cleaners and then attaching them to the lollipop stick. Super simple!
2.”Sparkly Stars”: When I stumbled across a package of sparkly foam stickers in star shapes, this topper immediately came to mind. I love using the different sizes. By using a bamboo skewer, the stars almost appear to be floating. If you have younger ones creating these, you may want to snip off the sharp end of the skewer to avoid any accidents…safety first!
3. Patriotic Poms: These toppers are super simple and lend a whimsical, almost Seuss-like look to your holiday party, making it a fun choice for kids. Since the poms are most easily pierced by using the sharp side of a bamboo skewer, we recommend adult supervision if little ones want to help create these adorably fun decorations.
