Looking for a fun yet simple craft for holiday decor? I’ve got ya covered. These Cupcake Liner Holiday Trees come together quickly because their ruffly goodness is achieved via cupcake liners!
See, pretty cute! This would be a fun group craft because it’s relatively simple so you can be chatting away and still craft without much thought. I love being part of the Make It: Fun Team with Floracraft and exploring the many crafting uses of styrofoam.
Let’s jump right in to the tutorial. Basically you just cut the bottom out of cupcake liners and then use hot glue to attach them to foam cones, layering them as you go – I have pictures to show you that a little more in detail. Let’s get started on the project – –
–1 package Holiday Cupcake Liners (1/2 package for the smaller trees)
–Foam Tree Forms
–Hot Glue Gun and Glue
First prepare all your cupcake liners by cutting out their inner circle. This will leave you with the ruffled side portion of the liner.
Next attach each liner to your foam tree form by putting a line of hot glue along the top edge of the ruffled side (the edge you cut the circle off) and pushing it onto the foam.
At the bottom of the tree one liner won’t make it all the way around, so you’ll need to fill in the gap with another liner.
Then proceed to work your way up the tree, layering your liners. Take note of where your seams are and avoid having seams land in the same spot on each row.
When you get the top, simply let the liner extend past the top of the foam and then gather the liner in together (use a dab of glue to hold, if needed).
Display your fun trees proudly!
