Shabby Faux Cupcake
Ohhhh don't we all just love a little sweetie treat! I am craving something right now, but I am trying to keep the pounds off for that summer swimsuit!~GIGGLE!~
Well, I have one for you that has zippity zero calories! My Shabby Faux Cupcake is easy breezy to make and makes a darling decoration or giveaway at parties!

This delightful treat is easy! I used a vintage styrofoam ornament but you can use a styrofoam ball and cover it with your favorite shabby fabric. Plop it in a real cupcake container and hot glue a little around inside edges. Fluffy up the top with lot of pretty pink tulle, roses, ribbons and baubles. Add LOTS of glitter and wha la, you have a darling faux decorative cupcake!
 
These are so pretty to use at special events to Shabby up a table and then give for favors! 
( BONUS: They are  fairly cheap and unique!)
Also, if you add a pretty ribbon or loop a strand of pearls at the top they can hang from a Shabby white tree.
They pair up so nicely with my favorite Pink Paper Crushed Roses!
Well, I hope you are inspired by this little delight
Please check in for my June giveaway, I promise it will be something fun!
A heartfelt hug goes out to Cindy hosting Show and Tell Friday  http://romantichome.blogspot.com/

Love these Parties!
Wish me luck Treasure Hunting this weekend~
Hugs,
Olivia
