Or, you can cut a heart shape out of styrofoam with an Exacto knife, paint it blue and sprinkle it with blue glitter before glueing it to your headband.

Step 3: Pick up a turquoise blue bra. You’ll want one with a lot of coverage and one you can easily affix two cupcakes to.

Step 4: Use your Exacto knife to cut the cupcakes off of the top of the two Cupcake Wands and use Super Glue or needle and thread to stick one cupcake to each bra cup.

Step 5: Get an old pair of cut off jeans and turn them into a sparkling pair of Daisy Dukes! Paint them with a coat of glitter paint or fabric paint and sprinkle turquoise glitter over the top. Allow one side to dry and then paint the other side.

Step 6: OPTIONAL: put on a pair of suntan pantyhose (which will keep you warmer if you’re not one of those West Coast girls!)

Step 7: Put on your now dry glitter Daisy Dukes over your pantyhose.

Step 8: Put on your cupcake bra.

Step 8: Put on a pair of false eyelashes and slick on a shade of candy pink lipstick to finish off a look that’s so hot it will melt your popsicle! If you want, you can also accessorize your look with a fun, oversized lollipop!
