Cupcake flowers

You will need 5 things:

  1. Patty tins (different colours or patterns are great)
  2. Pipecleaners
  3. Cotton wool balls
  4. Scissors
  5. Tape/Glue

First, cut into the sides of the patty tins, like so:

Then, grab your glue and a paddle pop stick or paintbrush (or even stickytape), and glue a pipecleaner to the back of a patty tin and a cotton ball to the front.

Add some glue to the top of the cotton ball, ready for decorating with glitter.

Add glitter or a piece of feather or anything else interesting.

Make some more so you can create a whole arrangement to put in a vase.

Rolled ‘roses’

You can also make rolled rose-like cupcake flowers, like this:

Stack a few patty tins together. Different colours:

Fold in half and roll gently. Then tape the edges together:

Once you have a few rolled ‘roses’, you can put a paddle pop stick or pipecleaner through the middle and out the small hole at the bottom point of the flower.
(We ran out of pipecleaners, can you believe it?!)

Here’s a top view of what they will look like all bunched together in a little teapot vase:

    I saw a picture of a cupcake bouquet, but can’t remember the site. It
    was a mixture of cupcakes and flowers in a pot. The cupcakes where on a
    plastic stick with a “basket” on the top
    for the cupcake to sit. Can’t really think of what to call them and
    can’t find them online. Need help to figure out what they are called
    and where I can buy them.
