Did you see my instagram post last week? It was PARTY WEEK at the elementary school and we decided to do a Candyland theme, including an oversized Candyland game I created for the 3rd graders. It was such a hit!
Well, this little project is what sparked the idea! To continue with the Candyland theme, the kids made snow-covered cupcakes with a cherry on top! They turned out so stinkin’ cute!!!
Here’s how you too can make a cupcake 🧁 ornament:
You will need:
- 1.25″ styrofoam ball
- 1 mini cupcake liner
- string, approx. 3″ in length
- 1 faux berry cut from branch
- faux snow
- skewer (not shown)
- glue gun (not shown)
Poke skewer into end of foam ball
Dip ball into glue, coating 2/3 of ball
Dip glue-coated ball into faux snow to cover.
Wiggle ball off skewer. (fingers may get a little messy from the wet glue.)
Put a dollop of hot glue in center of mini cupcake liner and stick UNcoated side of the ball to the cupcake liner..
Poke small hole at top of foam ball, place a dollop of hot glue in it and stick the 2 ends of the string into the hole.
Poke stick side of faux berry into that same whole and you are DONE!
Aren’t they adorable?!!! Cute as can be candy/cupcake ornament you are happy 😃 to see go on to the tree!
Merry Christmas y’all!!! I hope your day is candy-filled fun!
