Gumdrop cupcake-tini is a fun way to serve cupcakes for New Year’s Eve or any celebration.  These cupcakes are made entirely with supplies from the Dollar Tree making this not only cute, but affordable.

I had never heard of a cupcake-tini until just a few weeks when the Dollar Tree asked me to check out the Dollar Tree Value Seekers Club. The club is full of crafts, recipes, décor, tips, contests, insider information, frugal fun ideas, and more! Membership is Free and the content changes each month.  Plus, the project sheets can be saved or printed – perfect for taking to the store as a shopping list.  When I saw these New Year’s Eve Cupcaketinis I had to make them! They are adorable.   You can check out the Dollar Tree version, with instructions here.

cupcakes

Supplies:

  • Martini glasses – mine had a greenish hue on the cup part
  • Glitter nail polish
  • Candy – I used gumdrops, but be creative!
  • Cake mix and required ingredients
  • Frosting

I bought all of the supplies at the Dollar Tree!

 

cupcakes

This is the coolest thing about this project – you use nail polish to pretty up your glasses! It totally worked and is just really fun.  The Dollar Tree directions called for clear nail polish and craft glitter, but I figured I’d skip a step and just got glitter nail polish.
cupcakes

On the first glass, I painted the stem solid with the nail polish.  It took 5-6 coats to get a solid glitter look.  I waited for each coat to dry, but it only took a few minutes to dry completely.  I added a little star burst to the base of the glass.

cupcakes

On the second glass, I went with polka dots on the base and up the stem of the glass.  Just be careful not to load too much nail polish on the brush so it doesn’t drip or glop.   If you want to give these to guests to take home, a name or initials would be fun.

cupcakes

I used a confetti cupcake mix I found at the Dollar Tree because it seemed fitting for a New Year’s Eve celebration.

Gumdrops

The Dollar Tree cupcaketinis used Sno-Cap candies for the cupcaketinis, but I wanted something with more color.  I found bags of gum drops in the candy aisle at the Dollar Tree and I love how they turned out.

I love how these cupcaketinis turned out and will definitely be checking out the Dollar Tree Value Seekers Club often for creative inspiration.

How about a little more than just inspiration? I am giving one Growing Up Gabel reader a $100 gift card!  In order to enter, sign up for the Dollar Tree Value Seekers Club (it’s free!) and then leave a comment saying which project from the club you want to try first.
