Do you have a random stack of assorted cupcake liners in your cupboard? I find they’re sold like hamburger and hot dog buns – they never quite match up to how many hamburgers and hot dogs you’ve made. Here’s a cute and easy use for them – mini party hat cupcake toppers.

Materials needed: assorted cupcake liners, double-stick tape, glue, pom-poms.
Step 1: Flatten a cupcake liner in half. Then fold it in half again to find where the point should be.
Step 2: Gently twist the liner into a hat shape and secure it with a small piece of double-stick tape. Press firmly to seal.
Step 3: Add a dollop of glue to the tip of the hat and gently place a pom-pom on top. Let dry.
Step 4: Place the mini hats on your frosted cupcakes. Enjoy!
These are adaptable to any kind of party, depending on the colors or liners you have –a friend of mine did these in silver foil with a little gold star on top for her son’s wizard-themed party. And of course, they are the perfect size for toy animals and funny characters once the cupcakes have been eaten.
