How to make mermaid cupcake toppers
What you need
- Free printable mermaid tails
- Iridescent cellophane gift wrap
- Paper straws
- Pritt stick
What to do
Start by printing our free printable mermaid tails and before you start cutting anything out, cover each tail with glue.
Then cut out an A4 sized piece of iridescent cellophane gift wrap and stick it on top. Don’t worry if it’s not stuck on perfectly neat – a bit of texture is good!
Next, cut out each mermaid tail (as many as you need for all your cakes).
Put a line of glue down the back of the mermaid tail and stick it to a paper straw.
If it makes it easier, you can use a bit of cellotape at the this stage to hold the straw in place.
Cut the straw to size so that there’s only about an inch poking out from under the tail.
Last but not least, pop a mermaid cupcake topper in each cupcake!
And voilà!! Your mermaid cupcakes are finished! Check out our iridescent party supplies for dozens of cute party decorations to match.
