Delicious Cupcake Christmas Ornament


  1. Spray your glue adhesive in your clearn ornament. 

  2. Add your glitter, place the top back on your ornament, and shake it until the glitter is coating the entire inside of your ornament. 

  3. Place a generous amount of tacky glue on the bottom of a cupcake liner, and press and hold your ornament in place to make sure the ornament is going to stick. 

  4. Taking your Snow-Tex, use your foam brush to apply that all around the top of your ornament. 

    Pro Tip: to get this to really look like snow just dab and dollop the snow on the top of the ornament and dont swipe or paint it on. 

  5. Let that dry for a few hours, and apply a ribbon around the middle if you would like!

How cute! I'm sure any kid would love to help make one of these cupcake ornaments.

I never knew that Snow-Tex existed! Such an awesome tip for how to apply it, and such a cute project!

What a sweet idea! I think I have to make one for each of my grand kids, I know they will love one. And it seems to be a very easy inexpensive idea too. Those are two of my favorite qualities in making decorations. Thank you so much for sharing this one.'

I was waiting to see the finished project! -(
