This tutorial makes a super easy and festive way to jazz up your cupcakes and although especially fun for the 4th of July, my Easy Pom-Pom Firecracker Cupcake Toppers would be great for any celebration by changing the pom-pom colors to coordinate with your theme and colors! So happy cupcake decorating for you all!
To make the pom-poms, I used the Clover brand pom-pom makers that you can buy at your local Jo-Anns store. You can always check out the video I made HERE if you need help with your pom-pom makers. They are pretty easy to work although I totally get that sometimes the first time using them can be tricky!
You will also need a pair of scissors, some fun yarn colors, and toothpicks!
1. Open up the Pom-Pom maker and wrap the yarn around both “rainbow” sections.
2. Close up the Pom-Pom maker so it is back to it’s original look except now you will have yarn wrapped around the outer circle.
