DIY Doily Cupcake Wrappers

Did you notice the elegant cupcake wrappers on the Love Birds table yesterday? So pretty, you can make them for an engagement party, shower, winter-themed party or other special occasion. And they are so simple to make! All you need is:
  • 10" paper doilies (silver doilies will give you a nice vintage look)
  • scissors
  • transparent tape (not magic tape)
All you do is cut along the inside circle of the doily. The circle gives you the natural shape to create the wrappers. My finished size was about 8.5" between the widest tips. I was able to get two wrappers from each doily. Then, just close the wrapper with a small piece of tape and plop in your cupcake!

Wrappers are an easy way to dress up a homemade cupcake, and a smart way to cover burned bottoms!

  1. love it !!! Will do it the next time I make cupcakes for a friend!!

  2. I was looking at a package of doilies the other day thinking that there must be some other use for those things...what a great idea!

  3. Love this for a vintage inspired celebration.
