We loved this post on easy cupcake liner christmas trees, and wanted to share it with all our lovely Arista mums 🙂 This is a great no-mess, no-fuss kids craft idea and read on to see what you’ve got to do!
You will need:
Glue or adhesive tape
String or ribbon for hanging
Glitter, sequins or other embellishments (optional)
We went with traditional red and green for our trees but really, any colour would look lovely. Even plain white cupcake liners would be fantastic – your kids could go to town painting and decorating them any way they please.
How to Make a Cupcake Liner Christmas Tree
OK, are you ready for the super simple tutorial? This has to be the simplest craft we’ve ever done. To make each segment of the tree, simply fold a cupcake liner in half and then fold it in half again so you have a folded segment as shown in the photo below. This activity is great for developing fine motor skills and all that folding led to some playful maths discussions about fractions, halves and quarters. I love a little hands on learning while we craft!
Once you have folded the cupcake cases, it’s a simple matter of sticking them together. You can either glue them together or use adhesive tape. We ended up using a combination of both.
We topped each one with a little star shaped sequin. The trees look lovely just like this, but we added some embellishments to some of them as well. There’s no such thing as too much sparkle at Christmas time, is there?
To hang our cupcake case ornaments on our tree, we simply cut a length of natural twine, folded it into a loop and taped it to the back of the ornament. Easy! Don’t they look lovely on the tree?
Hope you enjoy making these as much as we did! Love Arista
