Insert the toothpick into one side of the Smoothfoam ball. This will give you something to grip while creating the ball and will hold the ball in the cupcake once the ball is finished.

Apply a small amount of hot glue to one end of the ball and begin spiraling the sequin strand around the ball to cover. The sequin strands on these balls are what give them their shine, but you can use loose sequins or confetti as well.

Repeat the gluing process until the ball is covered. To remove glue gun strings, use a heat gun, taking care to avoid heating the sequins too long, which results in curling. Apply the numbers of the year with glue and allow to cool. Insert into the top of your cupcakes and celebrate the new year!
