{Handmade Christmas Ornament No. 17}

We must be dreaming! We are beside ourselves with childlike happiness and honored, to be here today on Under The Table And Dreaming participating this years Handmade Ornament Series!!!

In honor of the special occasion, we brought some cupcakes to share will all of you!

Christmas Cupcake Ornaments
Who says you can’t hang cupcakes on the Christmas tree?! Not only are these supper cute, they are really simple to make up a batch in as much time as it would take you to bake up the real thing.So, if you don’t mind a little Christmas snow on the floor, on the table and in your hair, lets get started making some Christmas cupcake ornaments!

What You Will Need:

Fake snow called “Frosty Snow” we found ours at Walmart for under $2.00 for a large bag. Miniature Christmas tree ornaments found at the craft store.
Glue gun, Mod Podge, Paint brush, Styrofoam balls {big enough to fit mini cupcake papers}, Scintillement Brillo Glitter {called Ice from the craft store}. A shoe box or tray.

Mini cupcake papers. You will need two per cupcake.

Step One:

In your shoe box, pour about six cups of the Frosty Snow and a dozen or more good shakes of the Ice glitter.
Combine together and set aside.

Step Two:

Get ready your cupcake papers. You will need two per cupcake ornament.

Also have ready your Styrofoam balls.
Step Three:

Apply glue into the bottom and some on the sides of one of the cupcake papers.

Take the other cupcake paper and set it inside of the paper with the glue. Press on the bottom to help secure them together.

Step Four:

Apply glue in the bottom and some on the sides of the cupcake papers you just glued together.

Working quickly and carefully not to get burned, place Styrofoam ball into the cupcake paper and gently but firmly press down so the ball with adhere to the glue. Set aside to dry.
Step Five:

Apply a good layer of Mod Podge to the Styrofoam ball using a paint brush.

Be sure to apply Mod Podge all the way around where the cupcake paper and ball meet.

Step Six:

Roll your cupcake into the shoe box of snow and ice glitter. Use you hand to apply the snow/glitter as if you were applying coconut or chopped nuts to a cake. Press snow on gently but firmly all over. Shake off excess.

Sprinkle on some extra Ice glitter all over cupcake and shake excess back into the box.

Set aside to thoroughly dry, about 30 minutes.

Step Seven:

Time to put your decoration on top of your cupcakes!

Apply a small dab of glue on to the top center of your cupcake.

Stick on your ornament cherries making sure the string does not come in contact with the glue and glue itself down. Allow to dry and have fun decorating your Christmas tree.
These also look great as a centerpiece mixed in with some vintage Christmas ornaments.

Gift Giving Idea

We were inspired to make these little cupcake ornaments by the fun girls at Bake It Pretty. They have a great tutorial and also these cute matching cupcake gift tags you can print for free!

All you need is a candy box, standard size cupcake papers, ribbon and cupcake tag.

We hope you are inspired to do a little cupcake ornament making! Thank you so much Stephanie Lynn for inviting us to participate in this years Handmade Ornament Series!!!

  10. they are very cute but actual sizes of wrappers, balls, ornaments etc would’ve been helpful- going by definition- i.e. mini cupcake wrapper; I cannot find the ornaments small enough to look right as the cherry. Makes me wish I had bought bought bigger styro balls.



  1. […] These cupcake ornaments would be a huge hit with my girls. Stephanie Lynn has the tutorial on her blog, Under the Table and Dreaming.  […]
