Cupcake Liners: 10 Creative Uses You Might Not Know
Kids can make a huge mess with Popsicle. Keep that mess contained be slipping the stick through a cupcake liner before serving to catch those drips.
Decorate for Halloween in a jiffy! Flip over white cupcake liners and stick on googly eyes. Instant ghosts! String them up with some fishing line for a spooky good time.
Use up those broken crayons and re-purpose them! Fill foil liners about two-thirds full with unwrapped crayon stubs in assorted colors, place in a muffin tin, and heat in the oven at 275 F until melted together. Remove from oven and cool to use. The kids love this!
For a soft glow, poke the bulbs on a strand of miniature lights through the flat bottoms of liners. Great for Backyard BBQs, or even during the holidays.
Are those flies ruining your backyard party? To avoid these small undesirable guests on your drinks you can cover them using cupcake liners! Make a small hole to put a straw and enjoy it.
Decorative Mason Jar Lids
Decorate those mason jars before you give them as gifts. Use a cupcake liner over the top of those mason jars to decorate the jar. Cover the lid with the liner and screw the band over the top, or tie it with a piece of ribbon. So cute!
Divide and Conquer
Use baking cups to divide the kid's snacks into manageable portions. They are even great for those craft projects that require sequins, or googly eyes. You can place all of them into separate baking cups to keep your projects organized.
DIY Gift Topper
Wrapping a present last minute and you don't have a bow? Flatten out and stack 10 cupcake liners – staple them together at the center. I used two different colored liners and alternated front and back. Fold in half. Make evenly spaced apart cuts into liners to fray the edges. Pull apart liners and shape into a semi-circle. VOILA! Instant decorative gift topper
Make a Garland
With your skewer, poke a hole in the center of each cupcake liner. String white yarn through each cupcake liner, alternating colors, patterns, and which way the liners face. The yarn keeps the liners from sliding so much and will help keep them in place. Continue adding the liners until you reach the length of garland you like. Display your garland by tying each end wherever you like.
Use foil cupcake liners to hold tea lights: No cleaning up the dripped wax. Simply toss the liner when the wick is snuffed.
In case you were wondering, I purchase my cupcake liners from Sweets and Treats! They have the best selection of greaseproof liners around!
