Dollar Store Crafting-Baking Cup Bunting


Here's a simple, but cute bunting you can make with items purchased at the Dollar Store.  All you need are the following:

1 pkg. regular-sized baking cups
1 pkg. mini baking cups
glue stick
scissors
iron
sewing machine

Total cost:  $2.00
(with cupcake picks and 82 mini baking cups leftover for another project!)




Step #1 - Iron the baking cups flat.




Step #2 - Cut the baking cups in half.




Step #3 - Glue the mini baking cups to the center of the regular baking cups.




Step #4 - Stagger the baking cups as you stitch them down the center with the sewing machine.




Step #5 - Display!





Just a note...this bunting doesn't hang like your traditional bunting (with a gentle curve) so it's best laying on top of the mantle, or table, or attached across the front edge.  A couple of rows of these would look rather cute as a table runner for your Valentine's dinner!  Of course, with each holiday the Dollar Store has baking cups to match.  So these could be made for other holidays as well!

I like to link to these great parties!

  1. So thriftily adorable, Susan! The possibilities are truly endless! To me, almost looks like ric rac, too!

  3. I LOVE these! I have so many too big or too small cupcake cases (especially from those multipacks at Ikea!) that I can totally use for this! Thanks for the inspiration :-)
