Christmas Cupcake Ornaments




Materials Used:
 2" Styrofoam Balls
 Gold Glitter
 Tacky Glue
 Paper Cupcake Cups
 Ribbon & Bows 
 Holly Berries & Leaves
 A Small Styrofoam Glitter Ball for the Cherry

I used a glue gun to adhere 2-3 paper cups together (to make them sturdier)
 Bamboo skewer was pushed  through ball top So I could handle the ball to work with it.
Applied tacky glue liberally all over Styrofoam ball with brush & gold glitter was poured over ball. (need a big enough bowl to catch the extra)
Put skewered balls in a vase to let dry.
Ribbon was used as a hanger & attached with hot glue - before embellishing.
Cover up any unsightly hot glue with more glitter!
Look for any white spots in glittered ball & apply more glitter to cover!
Embellish with ribbon & bows holly berries & glittered leaves
Hope to inspire you to create some of your own for family & friends this Holiday Season! Hugs,Tee
