Easy Cupcake Christmas Ornaments


Last year, I shared a DIY Cupcake Christmas Ornaments post that has had a phenomenal turn out, and the traffic just keeps pouring in! If you're a long time follower of The Kurtz Corner, then you'll remember I was in the middle of buying our first house this time last year, and did not get to decorate for Christmas. Before I knew when we were moving last year, I was working on a sweets themed Christmas tree. Well, I finally got my wish this year! We all know how expensive ornaments are, and we definitely can't buy everything we want all in one year, so we collect a few each year. This year, I found these adorable faux cupcakes in the plastic food section at Hobby Lobby. Not sure what you would call that section in the store?? You'll find the plastic fruit, baguettes, and grapes in this section. You'll also find three varieties of these oh-so-cute cupcakes! Now, they aren't ornaments, they're meant to be placed on plates or serving pieces as decoration, but I saw them and thought 'why not ornaments!?' They're way more realistic than the glass or plastic ones in the Christmas section, which I love, and easy to turn into an ornament.

For this easy DIY project you will need:
  • Cupcakes - which come in a box of 2 for $10, but with a trusty Hobby Lobby 40% or 50% off coupon you can snag them for around $6
  • Screw eyes - 1/2 x 1/2" seen below
  • Jute or wire ornament hangers


Screw eyes which you can find at Lowes or Home Depot
These cupcake are made from foam, so all you need to do is press in the screw eye and twist until it is fully screwed in. Use some jute string or normal wire for a hanger. It's really that easy! I like these a lot because they aren't fragile. When you have two pups and a sometimes-clumsy-husband, non-breakable is a good thing! They also look super realistic and are so much cuter than the plastic ones you find.

  19. Alongside the extraordinary new tastes offered in cupcake plans, the manner in which the cupcakes are bested and designed are new and popular too. The basic whirl of what tops off an already good thing of a cupcake simply doesn't cut it any longer.2048 game

  20. I was a HIV-AIDS patient and I got it from cheating on my wife. It was sort of a payback but a week later I was told by a friend that the person who I cheated with had the HIV-AIDS virus and did not tell me. I was so stupid by not using a condom I thought since he was an old school friend he was trustworthy. But I was wrong. I cried and cried. Two days later, I got a phone call from my friend and he told me about a person who is known by another friend, who can help me. I could not let my wife know what I was going through. I finally got his email address: oseremenspelltemple@gmail.com and I emailed this man my story and he replied me immediately saying i should be calm and told me that everything will be OK. I could not come to terms with what I was hearing but then I concluded it did not matter because I was so broken I just needed help. I was going out of my mind literally. I was confused with what he was telling me, but I listened. He told me about some materials i need to buy that he needed to cast the spell and I said OK. I bought the materials to him, I sent down my picture to him and my positive result sheet and he replied me that i am going to be negative under 3days. I message Him every 2hours for 2day and I knew he thought that I was crazy but I did care I needed a shoulder. Behold, the third day he messaged me i should go for a test that i will be negative. My marriage could be broken because of a stupid mistake and my life was on the line. I remembered when I was going to get the results of my re-test I called him up again and told him that I was going to get my results today and his reply was “so" and that everything will be as he explained. I knew then that he was getting tired of me calling him, maybe I was wrong. Well I got my results and the first person I called was him - again. As he said hello I started to cry and cry. I could not believe it. I was given a second chance in life.This man is a great spiritual HIV/AIDS healer, his healing spell on aids healing is very powerful .please brothers and sister, contact Dr Ose oseremenspelltemple@gmail.com
