Nothing says a party like cupcakes, amirite?! But did you know that you can also bedeck your entire shindig with those leftover cupcake liners? Suddenly those red velvet delights are looking doubly sweet to this MacGyver. Check out these cute cupcake liner crafts and decor I scouted on Pinterest.

cupcake liner garland

This cupcake garland on Crafted By Lindy instantly makes the room feel more festive — and since it only takes a few hours to make, you can whip it up the morning of the celebration. (Hey, procrastinators need to party, too.)

cupcake liner bow

If you’re heading to someone else’s party as a guest, you can still find a clever way to use colorful cupcake liners. For example, peep this gift bow on Family Chic by Camilla Fabbri. Perks up a plain white box, doesn’t it?

cupcake liner balls

Pom-poms aren’t just the domain of tissue paper anymore. This ingenious twist from Heidi on Sew.Craft.Create uses Styrofoam balls, cupcake liners and a hot glue gun. They’re sturdier than traditional pom-poms and take less than an hour to make, which is definitely something to cheer about. Hang them from trees for some outdoor party ambiance.

cupcake liner flowers

Cupcake liner flowers make darling centerpieces at baby showers or kids’ birthday parties. These pink blooms, from Rebecca and our friends at Project Nursery, are so simple and cheery. Prefer live petals to prettify the table? Affix pins to the backs of the cupcake liner flowers and hand them out to wear or take home as favors.

cupcake liner number wreath

If you think wreaths are only for the holidays, think again. This birthday wreath from Creative Jewish Mom would make anyone’s special day a little brighter. This craft was brought to you by the number 9…and also a bunch of cupcake liners and paper plates.

Well, I’m definitely more impressed by the utility of cupcake liners now, and also craving some cream cheese frosting. Which craft do you think is the most appealing? And do you have any materials you want to see this MacGyver tackle? Leave your suggestions in the comments below!

    I guess getting creative with cupcakes doesn't stop after you eat them. I honestly never thought to use the liners like this before.

    I guess us girls can be as innovative as any guy out there. As an added bonus this is a whole lot cuter than anything MacGyver could ever cook up.
