Cupcake Liner Handmade Ornaments

This year I have made a commitment to have a completely handmade Christmas tree!
Yes, I am crazy. But I think I might actually be able to do it!

You know how when you go to department stores and they always have gorgeous tress with the big ornaments?
Well, I decided that I too want some “big” ornaments.

So I took my wooden plaques that I bought from Pick Your Plum and made some fun/big ornaments.
In this project I used some awesome products from X-ACTO  who just happens to have recently launched the Z-Series Knife —X-ACTO’s sharpest and most durable blade yet thanks to its coating of Zirconium Nitride.

So let’s get our supplies gathered up and get started!

{You will need}

– Wooden Plaques
– Cute cupcake liners
– Scrapbook Paper
– Elmer’s Dot Runner
– Ribbon
– Elmer’s Painters


First let’s make those cute little trees shall we?
Just take your cupcake liner and fold it in half (semi-circle)
Fold like it is pictured to make it look like a tree.
After folding it, you might have a little excess hanging off, just trim that with your scissors.
Then take your dot runner and use it to keep the “flaps down a little bit so they trees keep their shape.
Then set aside

Now, let’s take our wooden plaques and painters marker.

I used my painter (in pearl red color) to trace around the edge of my plaque, and let dry.

Now we are going to cut out 3 circles (for each ornament) from your scrapbook paper.
Mine are 2″ diameter circles.

Now we are going to arrange these like pictures and using your dot runner attach the tree strait to the circles.
I left my circles unglued so I could makes sure they were centered up while attaching the tree, and just made sure to hit all the circles with the glue dots that were on the tree.

Flip over your paper circles and tree and apply some more of your glue dots, center it up, and put it on your wooden plaque.

      Thanks Vanessa! I have so many of those things lying around, I figure better to use them like this than fill them with cupcakes, hehe

    Wow! I am so amazed at your dedication. It is so hard to do comsidering that there are other activities that need attending to. I guess the Christmas spirit has gotten into you this early. :)

    These are so cute. I’m also making a lot of ornaments this year… but our transition to a completely handmade tree is a bit more gradual than yours! Good luck getting it all done in time. Looks like you are off to a stellar start. Pinning this project. :-)
