A few years ago I made myself a garland from cupcake cases (here) and this weekend I thought I would resurrect this simple and ever-so-quick idea to pretty up a corner of the playroom. This garland works best with the type of cupcake cases that have firm sides and fairly substantial bases. You simply cut down the sides of the case at roughly even intervals (the cases I used had a scalloped edge so spacing was easy) and flatten the cases. I added some little heart stickers, but spelling out a message also works well. I have just ordered myself some pretty red and white striped cupcake cases to make a more Christmas version too (I purchased mine from Lark). They are a bit addictive!
