Snowball Cupcake Ornament

Is the weather outside where you are frightful? Any hope of a white Christmas here is California? Probably not, but... we can pretend a little with our Snowball Cupcake Ornaments.

We all probably remember those snowball cupcakes we ate as kids. Now we are all grown up and instead of eating those, we hang cupcakes on our Christmas tree.

Craft items you will need

Making Cupcake Ornaments

Once you have made your snowballs following the instructional link above it is time to assemble and decorate.

Place some hot glue into your cupcake paper and place your  snowball on top of the glue and gently, but firmly hold until set.

Place a few dots of glue on the inside of the cupcake paper and press together to the snowball to secure the paper to the snowball.

Glue on your selected trim to your snowball.

Take your jingle bell and run bakers twine through the opening on the top and tie a knot.

Once all parts are dry you are ready to hang or package up as gifts!

Are you planning a real snowball fight this Christmas?

..but [Jesus] made himself nothing, taking the very nature of a servant, being made in human likeness. And being found in appearance as a man, he humbled himself and became obedient to death — even death on a cross!
Philippians 2: 7-8
