First up, I have Annie Schlechter's cupcake twinkle lights (found via decor8). Strand of lights? Check. Cupcake liners of your choosing? Check. Scissors? Check. Snip, slip and viola! A sweet strand of twinklers perfect for stringing across the mantle for the holidays -- but I think they'd be lovely at a birthday party, a shower or even an intimate wedding celebration, too. So pretty.
Next up, is Sweet Paul's cupcake liner holiday tree. Don't have room for a tree this year? Fear not! This tree can go up just about anywhere and all you need are the liners, some double-sided tape and a glittery tid-bit for your topper. Simple instructions right here (and check out the rest of Paul's blog for a whole month of wonderful holiday crafts).

And last - but certainly not least - we have the fantastic cupcake liner garland from Project Wedding (featured in a recent Sunday Suppers post). This beauty is made with the liners - some tea-stained and others left as is - and vintage fabric scraps but, you could use just about anything (this version in Green Craft magazine uses coffee filters, old sheet music and book pages as well -- your materials are only limited by your imagination). No matter what you're using, I think these garlands would be right at home strung around doorways, above windows or even around your tree. Get the how-to right here.
