Dollar Store DIY: Valentine’s Day Cupcake Lights

Who doesn’t love an easy and inexpensive craft? These simple Valentine’s Day cupcake lights are so easy to make, so sweet to display, and so easy on your wallet! With just a few dollar store supplies, you can make a set of your own and add some glow to your Valentine’s Day décor. Take a peek below and get inspired, as the season for sweethearts is almost here!

Dollar Store DIY: Valentine’s Day Cupcake Lights

Supplies needed:
Valentine’s Day themed cupcake cups/liners, large
White cupcake cups/liners, small
Strand of white twinkle lights

We were able to find all of these supplies at our local dollar store, making the final cost of this project just $3. Plus, we had tons of leftover cupcake cups perfect for using for our baking needs.

Directions:
1. Begin by turning your patterned cupcake cups inside out. You want for the decorated side to be on the inside of the cup, and the plain white to be on the outside.
2. Unravel your strand of twinkle lights. Use a pencil to poke a hole in the center of each cup. Place the large cup over each light bulb until it is snug in place. For extra ruffle, you can apply several cups if you wish. For our sample picture, we used two large cups per bulb.
3. Add an inner layer to the cup by poking a hole in the center of the smaller, plain cupcake cup. Add it to the center of the larger cup, sliding it over the bulb until it is also firmly in place.

Three steps and you are done! Now all you need to do is plug your strand in and watch it glow. These Valentine’s Day themed lights look lovely draped on a mantel, hanging over an entry way, or anywhere else you can use a pop of color and light. So head to your dollar store and give this simple craft a try! It is one sure to add some Valentine’s Day charm to your space!

Be sure to drop by the Living Frugal with Erika’s Deal Group! There is always something new and you can chat personally with me and others! Great place to show off your shopping trips, ask questions, and so much more!

  1. What a fabulous idea! And of course you could do this for any holiday just by changing the cupcake liners. I also think they would be a great addition to a little girls room – maybe around her bedroom door or headboard or mirror, etc. Thanks for sharing!

  2. Cute!!!

  3. This cute idea will give our mantle a dreamy/romantic glow. Thanks for the idea and for sharing at Making Monday. Have a great week.
