Original and fun cupcake toppers are all the rage at the moment! We love to use our bright tiny balloons as cupcake toppers as they are fun, jolly and can be co-ordinated with any party. These little decorations pack a punch at a party for a tiny price!
To make these little balloon cake toppers all you will need is:
- 5" balloons
- Toothpicks or wooden skewers
- Ribbon if you choose to add it
Step 1: Snip the ends off your wooden toothpicks
Step 2: Blow up your balloon. Do not inflate fully as this will be too big, inflate to the size you want and knot the balloon as close to the inflate part as possible to give it a nice shape, leaving a large end bit.
Step 3: Insert the sharp end of your stick downwards in and through the balloons knot
Step 4: Push the stick through the knot but not all the way! Leave the un-sharp end sitting snugly at the base of the inflated balloon.
Step 5: This should now be fine to use as a topper but if it is a little wobbly or does not stand up then tie it tightly with a piece of ribbon or add a touch of washi tape.
