DIY Cupcake Toppers and Feather Party Food Picks

I have a super easy and cute DIY for you today, just in time for all your fall entertaining!  Can I tell you a little styling secret?  Sometimes I have food around my house that I use in shoots for a LONG time.  I work with SO much party food that I can’t possibly let my kids eat it all, so instead, I keep it and try to use it a few times so I don’t waste it.  I had these cupcakes sitting on top of the fridge and I knew I wanted to make something for Thanksgiving with them, but I couldn’t quite figure out what.  Well, I went to Hobby Lobby yesterday and found these die cut feathers in the scrapbook section, so I grabbed them and came home to make something fun.  In a matter of about 5 minutes and with the help of a glue gun and some toothpicks, I made these DIY cupcake toppers and feather party food picks that I think look SO cute and would be darling for any Thanksgiving table, fall party, or how about a cute tribal themed birthday party or baby shower?

Hot glue a toothpick to the back of each feather…that’s it!  Aren’t those cute and easy DIY cupcake toppers?  You can use them as appetizer picks too.
