Cupcake Liner Party Decoration D.I.Y.

   
September is a busy month for us with back-to-school, my husband's birthday, our anniversary and my oldest daughter's birthday all in a two week span.  I love everything handcrafted for parties including the decorations, cake and invitations but it can seem like a never-ending birthday month!

That's why I was ecstatic to find this last minute do-it-yourself number decoration.  It's resourceful and cheap.  The original instructions on Pinterest used coffee filters and foam for supplies.  I had neither of these things and didn't have time (or desire sorry) to dye the filters. Instead I used a package of fancy cupcake liners turned-inside-out, a cardboard box, and a few glue sticks for a project total of $2.80. 

Before

I ran out of cupcake liners on the number "0" and definitely had no time to run to the store so I filled in the spaces with some beautiful paper flowers.  You can find the instructions on how to make these incredibly easy coiled flowers here.
