Materials Needed: Striped paper straws, scissors, 1/8” ribbon in 6 different colors, ruler, scotch tape, hot glue gun, 1/2” gumball
Step 1: Cut the paper straw to 3” long.
Step 2: Grab one of each strand of ribbon and cut to 5” lengths. You’ll want two of each color for each cupcake (12 strands total).
Step 3: Adhere the end of each strand to a single piece of scotch tape. Tightly roll the scotch tape until you have a little tassel. Snip the end for get a nice, clean edge.
Step 4: Apply a tiny bit of hot glue on the taped end of the tassel and stick into the 3” paper straw. This will keep it from wiggling out of place.
Step 5: Holding the straw upright (tassels up), apply a dab of hot glue in the center of the parted tassels. Place a gumball, and hold until glue has cooled. You can use the scissor technique used for curling ribbon to give the ribbon a little direction.
Step 6: Prop the mini maypole in the center of your cupcakes — serve, and enjoy!
