Create a field of shamrocks with these super-easy and fast toppers. Once you have your supplies ready, they literally take seconds to make. Using different shades of green pom poms – as well as different sizes – adds variety and interest to these simple toppers. Erin Go Braugh!
Step 1: Select three matching pom poms. Apply a dab of glue to the right side of a pom pom. Immediately stick a toothpick to the glue, then place another pom pom around the toothpick.
Step 2: Apply a dab of glue to the top of the two pom poms, and place a third pom pom on top.
Step 3: Cut out a small sliver of green “stem” and using the tiniest bit of hot glue, attach to the toothpick directly under the pom poms.
Step 4: Pull away any strands of dried hot glue. Insert into cupcakes and enjoy!
