Spring wildflowers are here! So why not use some free blooms to decorate a cupcake or six? I made these little treats for family, but they would be great for Mother’s Day, too. Don’t want to put your blooms right into your cupcake? I have a plan, friends. I made some mini vases out of straws for each of my flowers. Yes, straws. Practically free and easy! Read about how I did it below…
I washed the flowers first so that they were dirt and insect free, then inserted them into the straw vases we made. With larger blooms you need only one flower per cupcake.
My little man helps by inserting each flower into a straw that was cut and sealed at the bottom with hot glue. If desired add a little bit of water to your new straw mini vases to keep the flowers fresh. So easy a little silly man can help. As long as you wash him up first.
