12 Days of Christmas Crafts

Cupcake Christmas Ornament – Crafting with Kids. This is a super easy but a little messy craft. I suggest that you cover your work area for this craft. All the items (with the exception of the chaulking) were bought at that Dollar Tree which, makes this a great Dollar Store Crafting craft as well.

Items Needed: Shop at Dollar Tree

1 Sleeve Ornaments (The one I grabbed had 12)
1 Package of Pom-Poms
Small Cupcake Wrappers
Glitter or small beads
Glue Gun
Scrap Paper or Paper Plate
Chaulking (cheapest but make sure it’s white) or Elmers Glue

Using your glue gun glue a cupcake wrapper to the bottoms of each ornament. Apply either the glue or chaulking thickly (this will give it an illusion of real icing) to the upper area of the ornament and down the sides a little. You can cover the ornament hanger but make sure you leave the little hole uncovered. That way you can attach the hanger later. Sprinkle glitter on top, add a red pom-pom and set aside to dry.

When they are dried, add the hanger and hang on the tree. You can also attach these to a strand of yarn and use them as garland for the mantle.

Cupcake Christmas Ornament -12 Days of Christmas Crafts Kaydens

This was a super fun craft for Kayden, I placed some chaulking on the plate and let her use a spoon to apply the icing. She thought she was a cake decorator. At one point she got frustrated because the icing wasn’t smooth enough. I believe she’s going to be a perfectionist like her mom and grandma.

Day 1 of the 12 Days of Christmas Crafts done.

  3. […] Every year while out grabbing Christmas craft supplies, I walk over and look at some of the centerpieces they have made. I get little ideas here and there, but the ones that have frosted looking branches have always caught my attention. Of course, this year was no different. But . . . this time after looking at the prices of frosted branches I was determined to make my own. So here I am sharing with you my version of the Frosted Christmas Branch.
