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!
