Cupcake Ornaments

I've seen quite a few cupcake ornaments on Pinterest recently.
Here's my version...

They are so easy and inexpensive to make.

I used light pink ornaments that cost $5.99 for a box of 8 ornaments and I had a 40% off coupon. This made the box of ornaments $3.60 or 45 cents each
I bought baking cups at Michael's for $1.99 a pack. I can't remember how many were in a pack, but it comes out to just a few cents per ornament.
For the frosting, I used Snow Tex. It cost $3.99 a jar. I was able to make 5 ornaments per jar which comes out to approximately 80 cents per ornament.
The sprinkles are made using seed beads that I've had forever so I don't know how much they cost (so we'll consider them free).
For the cherry, I bought a spray of berries for $1.29. There were 25 berries per spray so the cost was about 5 cents per ornament.
I glued the ornament into the baking cup using E6000.
When I added the Snow Tex, I made sure that I covered the hanger on the ornament allowing just a little of the loop to stick out to be able to hold a hook.
Then I just drizzled on the beads. They stuck perfectly to the Snow Tex without having to push them into the "frosting."
For the cherry, I pulled a berry off of the spray and stuck it into the Snow Tex.
 I allowed the Snow Tex to harden overnight.

These ornaments turned out so cute and cost under $2 each!

  5. OMG! How cute! I loved reading how you made these. I'm not very crafty, so it was interesting to see what you used. They look so real. I love this idea for a "sweets" tree. They would be cute on a white Christams tree in the kitchen. Thanks for sharing and thanks for popping in to visit me too.
