- Pink Honeycomb Picks
- Green Crepe Paper Streamers
- Hot Glue Gun
- Green Paper
- Pen to Write Message
Begin by cutting the toothpick end of the honeycomb picks in half. Then cut a 6″ long piece of green streamer.
Place the pick on the green streamer at a slight angle and glue into place. Then roll the streamer around the pick to create a long cherry stem. Leave the last 1″ of streamer unrolled and glue the streamer end onto the stem to secure the crepe paper. Then cut the end piece of the streamer into a leaf shape.
Repeat with another pick to create a second cherry, then glue the cherries together to create a pair of cherries. Next, use a dab of glue to glue the toothpick ends that you cut off in the beginning into the bottom of the honeycomb cherries. This will create a pick that you can put into the cupcake frosting to hold the cherries in place.
Repeat to make as many cherries as you need, then cut pieces of green cardstock into leaf shapes and add your Valentine’s message. I went with “I Pick You”. Cute and on theme! Then just hot glue the leaf to the cherries and add to store bought or homemade cupcakes.
