Cupcake Christmas Ornaments

 

It's is my absolute favorite time of the year! Time to dust off your jingle bells, pour yourself some peppermint hot coco and make something for Christmas! I always loved making Christmas ornaments as a kid, and well, I still do! I love putting up the tree with my family and looking back at all of the ornaments I made as a kid. So many wonderful memories. I can't wait to make more of those memories with my kids someday! Every so often I like to switch up Christmas tree themes and this year I want a sweets tree decked out in candies and cupcakes! To start off the new theme I've created these cute little pink iced cupcakes. I think they turned out cute, what do you think? Want to make some of your own? Keep reading!

Cupcake Supplies:
1. Plastic ornaments (I used white)
2. Glitter!
3. Cupcake liners
4. Mod Podge
5. Hot glue
6. Red sparkle balls (Christmas section of Hobby Lobby)

Step 1
Remove the ornament hanger

Step 2
Hot glue your ornament into the cupcake liner, top side down

Step 3
Hot glue all around so that the liner is secure

Step 4
Create a Mod Podge/glitter mixture and paint onto your ornament

Step 5
Sprinkle on some dry glitter and tap off any excess

Step 6
Insert your ornament hanger into your "cherry" (Styrofoam works best)

Step 7
Allow your ornament to fully dry and then hot glue on your "cherry"
You're done!

These are really fun and easy to make! They would be a great craft for kids as well. Just remember, parents handle the hot glue, we don't want to burn the kiddos! Here are a few shots of my finished cupcakes, enjoy!

  25. These are awesome! I started a sweet themed tree after seeing Cupcake Julie's on Bakerella (http://www.bakerella.com/candyland/)and it has been such a hit that I keep bringing it back. I never thought of making my own ornaments though...now I know how I'll be spending my future free time! Thanks for the great post.
