3 pretty DIY ornaments that look like your favourite treats

Add some unexpected sweetness to your holiday decor with these sparkly DIY ornaments made to resemble the most delectable treats.

CUPCAKE

null

Ornament, pom-pom, baking cup and ribbon, michaels.com.

MATERIALS
• Pink ball ornament
• Small foam brush
• White school glue
• Pink glitter
• Hot glue
• White sparkly pom-pom
• Pink silicone baking cup
• Ribbon

HOW TO
1. To create the "icing," using the brush, apply the school glue to the top third of the ornament (it should look natural, as if the icing on a real cupcake was drizzled over top). Sprinkle the glitter over top to cover. Let dry; tap off excess glitter.

2. Using the hot glue, affix the pom-pom next to the ornament cap and the baking cup to the bottom of the ornament.

3. String the ribbon through the ornament cap; hang. 

 

 

MACARONS

Two-sided standard bottle caps in White, Purple, Light Blue and Pink, bottlecapco.com. Baker's twine and glitter, michaels.com.

MATERIALS
• Scissors
• Metallic gold baker's twine
• Hot glue
• Two-sided standard bottle caps in pastel hues
• Small foam brush
• White school glue
• Glitter (in corresponding colours)

HOW TO
1. Cut a 6-inch long piece of twine; knot the ends together. Using the hot glue, affix the knot to the inside of one bottle cap.

2. Carefully holding the bottle cap with your fingertips, apply a thin strip of hot glue around the crimped edge; quickly place a second cap on top of the first so the crimped edges align, pressing firmly to sandwich the twine between.

3. Using the brush, generously apply a coat of school glue to the seam of the bottle caps. Holding the twine out of the way, roll the edge of the "macaron" in the glitter to cover. Repeat with the other bottle caps. Let dry; hang.

 

 

DOUGHNUTS

null

Wooden toy wheels with recessed hubs, craftparts.com. Ribbon, michaels.com.

MATERIALS
• 2- x 5/8-inch wooden toy wheels with recessed hubs
• Flat white spray paint
• White dimensional fabric paint
• Small foam brush
• Clear glue
• Pink glitter
• Ribbon

HOW TO
1. Using the spray paint, paint each wheel. Repeat with as many coats as needed to cover. Let dry.

2. To create the "icing," squeeze the fabric paint onto one side of the wheel (it should look natural, as if the glaze on a real doughnut was drizzled over top). Let dry.

3. Using the brush, apply glue to the fabric paint. Sprinkle the glitter over top to cover. Let dry; tap off excess glitter. Repeat with the other wheels.

4. String a ribbon through each wheel's hole; hang.

CRAFT TIP: To easily and evenly spray paint the wheels all at once, insert several wooden chopsticks into a block of Styrofoam; slide one of the wheels onto each. Spray the wheels all over; remove when dry.
