DIY Cupcake Banner

Well, Mother's Day has come and gone, but this banner is too cute not to share.  And, you can make it work for any celebration!

You will need:

  • Paper straw
  • Embroidery floss
  • Washi tape
  • Paper
  • Markers
  • Scissors
  • White glue

Cut your paper straw in half- this will be the stakes for your banner.  Then, unravel a length of embroidery floss.  Fold washi tape in half over the floss.  Use your scissors to cut a notch in the tape. You can repeat this process for the entire banner, or you can personalize it by cutting strip of paper the same length as the washi tape.  Fold the paper over the floss and write a letter or symbol on the paper.  Cut a notch in the paper, then use a dot of glue to secure.  Finish the banner off with two more washi flags.

Tie the ends of the embroidery floss  to the straws.  Then, simply place them in the tops of your cupcakes!  Such an easy way to add a custom touch to a celebration :)
