DIY: Race Car Cupcake Toppers

I don’t know about you, but there is at least one person in my house who is a fan of all types of motor car racing.  From F1 (which I actually enjoy watching) to NASCAR he is interested in it all.  I blame his dad and grandfather for this fascination with all things racing but I suspect it is quite the norm with boys of all ages.  I recently had a custom request to put together something for a little guy’s 3rd birthday party.  Mom wanted a race theme but nothing “character” related and I lucked out and found these adorable car stickers on the cheap.  I think they turned out quite fun, and wanted to share in case you might want to make a few of your own!

  1. Place first sticker laying face down on a flat surface

  3. Optional Step in case your stickers are a bit heavier:  Apply glue to the back of the sticker
