When I first thought up the idea for this project, I thought I was so innovative. A hanging orb made out of cupcake liners! Surely no one else has thought of that! Alas, when I typed in the description in Pinterest, I saw a lot of similar results as mine. Is there anything original left to create? Oh, well. While there might be similar projects out there, I thought it would be fun to share this project. It’s a cool decorative ball that you can hang or customize in whatever color you like. It would also look cute if you used solid colored cupcake liners and dipped the tips in paint to make a two-toned effect.
--Styrofoam ball from craft store in any size
--Cupcake liners in one color or complimentary patterns
--Pack of straight pins
Step 1: Take a cupcake liner and flip it inside out. Then just take a straight pin and stick it through the cupcake liner and the ball. Do this around the entire ball until you can’t see the Styrofoam anymore. That’s pretty much it. Easy, huh?
I’d love to make more of these in different sizes and hang from the ceiling. They add such a fun splash of color. This was a quick and easy project—my favorite kind to do while watching TV on a lazy afternoon!
