How to Make Sparkly Cupcake Toppers

These cupcake toppers are all kinds of adorable. In fact, you can use them for more than just cupcakes. They’d look super cute situated around the top perimeter of a cake as well. 
The toppers are easy to make. All you need is a hot glue gun and a glue stick, Christmas Tree tinsel and toothpicks.

I told you it was easy to make. 

First dab a bead of hot glue onto the tip of the toothpick and press the end of the tinsel to the glue.

Now start wrapping the tinsel around the toothpick until your sparkly topper reached your desired fullness. You may have to add another bead or two of glue as you wrap.
Next, clip the end of the tinsel and glue it to the toothpick. You’ll probably want to fluff your topper to give it a full look. Here’s what mine look like.

These turned out so cute for the cupcake I made for our New Year’s Eve dessert table
This is such an easy way to add some sparkle to desserts.
