Easy cupcake decorating ideas – Step by step
First, cut the sheet of paper longitudinally into two halves (each 105 x 291 mm). Then fold one strip on the short side in a zigzag starting in similar as possible, about 4-5 mm wide strips.
When the strip is completely folded, cut into three approximately equal parts.
Now pierce the strip with a needle and thread at the one end. Take three to four folds, not all together.
Now on one of the outer folds attach a piece of double-sided adhesive tape.
After that stick together the two outer sides and tie the two ends of the threads to a knot. The wheel is ready.
Now glue with the hot glue gun colorful buttons and / or colored paper circles in the center of the wheel.
On the back you can now attach a toothpick into a paper folding with the hot glue gun. The cupcake decoration is finished!
By the way: These easy cupcake decorating ideas can not only decorate cupcakes, but the whole coffee table. Just glue a colorful paper wheel on a ribbon and tie it around the napkins. With a small, handwritten label they will even be suited for place cards.
