It was a very chilly, rainy day here in Melbourne, perfect for settling down with a cup of tea and browsing my latest time-waster, Pinterest. If you haven't discovered this website of virtual pin-boards, with everything from interiors to hairstyles, crafts to recipes, then hop right over there after reading this post! Today I stumbled across a decoration made from cupcake wrappers and had to experiment with it straight away. Do I need one right now? No! But it was an enjoyable way to spend an hour and it would be a great way to pretty up a table for a cocktail party, wedding or other special occasion.
It was very simple to make. You just need a styrofoam ball, lots of cupcake wrappers and pins - luckily all of which were hiding in my cupboards.
Stick a pin through the centre of a cupcake wrapper and scrunch it up a bit. Then simply push the pin into the ball. Add another, and another, until they are all beautifully squashed together and you can no longer see the styrofoam.
