Dollar Tree Christmas Cupcake Ornament A DIY Craft

Sharing is caring!

I am always creating new ornaments to craft with my Niece and Nephew for the holidays.  They give them away to family, friends, neighbors, and teachers to brighten the season.  A few simple materials transform into a sweet Dollar Tree Christmas Cupcake to decorate your tree this holiday season!  Never has crafting been such a treat!

Apply a generous amount of dimensional fabric paint to the top of the ornament.

Place the cupcake on plain paper and sprinkle with clear glitter.  Gather paper and return excess glitter to the container.  Set aside to dry overnight.

Thread a ten-inch length of baker’s twine through the hanger and tie into a loop.  Glue a pom-pom “cherry” to both sides of the hanger to hide the knot.
