I just love how a cupcake pick can make such a difference to a dessert. Suddenly something so simple is transformed into something much more personal. They can really help set a theme. These Easter cupcake toppers are so simple to make, and took me only about 15 minutes to do so. Granted, mine are actually sticking out of my coconut cookie cups, but the premise is the same.
They are also inexpensive to make, and you only need a few items - most of which I bet you already have around the house.
For these Easter cupcake toppers you'll need:
- Cricut Machine (I used my Cricut Air 2)
- cardstock in your color choice
- hot glue gun with glue sticks
- mini pom poms
- Silicone finger protectors : Optional, but great to save burning your fingers!
Seriously, that's it!
So let's get started. I made the most time consuming part easy peasy for you. I simply took some bunny images from the Cricut Design Space, edited them a bit, and scaled them. I've saved the entire file to create 12 picks right HERE:
If you have a Cricut access membership, these files should be free. I think the bunnies look adorable on the picks:
Once you've cut the files out, you start by glueing the toothpicks onto the bunnies. I positioned mine a bit differently on each one, and turned the bunnies different directions to add a bit of variety to the picks.
I placed a pick on one bunny each, but if you are worried that both sides will be seen, you can just add another identical bunny and squish the toothpick in between.
For the last step (see, I told you it was easy!!!!!!), I added a mini pom pom to where the bunny's tail would be. I think this really added to the cuteness factor!
Simply dab some hot glue where the tail is, and then press the pom pom onto it. Since they are mini pom pom's the silicon finger protectors come in very handy! Please don't burn those fingers. If you don't have the finger covers, you should use tweezers.
Once they've cooled, make sure to remove any leftover strings of glue.
In addition to the fun easter cupcake toppers, I took the time to cut out a script saying of "Happy Easter". I used colored straws and positioned it in 2 of the cookie cups. It took just a few more minutes. I think placing that in a cake and surrounding it with some bunnies would be adorable! What a way to save time on your easter brunch. You'd simply need to purchase a plain store bought cake, and make the bunnies in advance when you had a free moment.
What do you think? Have you make any cupcake toppers before?
