Add just a little bit of sparkle to your cupcakes with these simple gold mini-wreaths. Bonus – they are so easy they take about 10 minutes to make, and 7 minutes of that is waiting for the hot clue gun to heat up! You can alter the bows to match your party décor colors. Wouldn’t a bright red bow be so cute too?
Step 1: Wrap the gold trim three times, around four fingers. The wreath should be about 2 inches by 2 inches. Cut and twist the end to secure it.
Step 2: Cut a 5 inch x ½ inch piece of fabric. (You could also use ribbon for this). Tie it into a little bow.
Step 3: Attach the ribbon to the gold wreath with hot glue.
Step 4: Dab a bit of hot glue to the tip of a toothpick.
Step 5: Stick the toothpick to the underside of the wreath in back of the bow.
Step 6: Adjust the wreath, if needed, into a circle shape.
PS: After the cupcakes are eaten, clean the ends of the toothpicks with a damp cloth and pack them away for next year.
