Do you want to know how to make Christmas ornaments out of cupcake liners? This is a very easy project that yields the prettiest results!
I love projects that involve everyday items that you would never guess where used for the project, but make the project so easy and doable! That is exactly what these cupcake liner ornaments are…
Friends, this is a fun and easy DIY for you today! And it is so pretty! I am going to show how to take simple cupcake liners and transform them into a lovely Christmas decoration for your tree.
You will need glue, string and a pack of cupcake liners. Please note, I used hot glue, but be very careful not to burn yourself if using this. You can also use craft glue it will just take a little extra drying time.
Start by flattening out your cupcake liners.
Then fold all the cupcake liners in half with the pattern or color facing inside. You can easily use any style of cupcake liner for this!
Next, begin gluing one outside edge lined up with another folded outside edge.
You will repeat this process until you have all the liners glued in one pile.
Here you can see how the folded pack of liners look all glued together. Now here is where the magic happens…
Cut enough string to use to hang the ornament and glue it into the outside of all the folded pieces like so…
Once that is set, add a good amount of glue on the outside and bring to two outer pieces together.
It is important to glue the outside pieces together because they will hold the ornament in place and give it that circular shape.
Make sure that everything has adequate time to dry. Remember when we started this post, I asked, Do you want to know how to make Christmas ornaments out of cupcake liners? Now look what we have, this festive ornament all ready for a Christmas tree!
I loved the organic feel of the ornament like this, but you could certainly do things to the edges.
Like dip the edges into craft glue and roll it into glitter.
For a minute, I considered painted the edges with some gold foil type of paint, but again loved how it felt a bit rustic. So I kept it as is!
If you made a bunch of these in different styles and sizes, it would make for a beautiful arrangement. Or you could do like I did, and sprinkle a few here and there. I think they are precious.
I really enjoy crafting my decorations each year and this certainly makes for a fun DIY. If would even make a pretty school project if you switched out the hot glue and used craft glue instead.
