Looking for a creative way to dress up cupcakes and mini treats for the holidays? These Sparkly Faux Berry Toppers are super easy & inexpensive… and you can always switch up the colors and finish of the berries to anything you like!
All I did was pull individual berries off of those wired “holiday picks” that you always see lining the aisles of Michaels & other craft/floral supplies this time of year. Each pick was under $1 when I purchased them on sale, but I think they run between $1.29 – $1.50 regularly. I also bought a plastic glittered holiday leaf pick from the same section & cut all of the silver leaves from that, but didn’t have a full pick leftover for this materials group shot, so you’ll have to use your imagination. ;)
To assemble, simply trim leaves off the leaf pick and pull berries off the berry pick. Hot glue 3 berries together to form a trio (or twist them together with their attached wires then trim the excess wire). Next, glue the berries to the leaf, then the leaf/berry cluster to a toothpick or bamboo skewer. DONE!
These look super cute in everything from the Starbucks Petite Whoopie Pies pictured here to mini pie tarts, cupcakes, cookie bars, etc.
