First glue your Christmas ball into your festive Cupcake Liner and allow to dry completely. We liked to angle it slightly.


Then Paint the top of the ornament with the snow product. I have also seen people just paint the ornaments but I prefer the texture of the snow medium.

Quickly add your beads to resemble sprinkles.

I hot glued the “cherry” onto the ornament as I was not sure how well the snow would hold onto the bigger item.


Allow these to dry for 24 hours. I found it just as easy to keep them in a cupcake pan to dry.

I told you they were easy and pretty cute too. You could always add a note to the bottom of the cupcake liner with your name and year so they recipient will remember who gave them the ornmanet. Have fun with this project, you can make mini cup cakes too.
