Have you noticed the great selection of cupcake liners at the dollar store lately? There are tons of cute holiday-themed liners to choose from. You already know I am a baking supplies addict, so you can count on the fact that I have at least one of each style of cupcake liner currently available at the dollar store. These adorable holiday tree decorations were made by Desiree of The 36th Avenue for the Tatertots & Jello blog, and they are so cute, and very thrifty to make. Desiree even formed the bases of the tree out of old 12x12 cardstock (great use for old styles you don't want to use anymore). [how to make cupcake liner trees] [also visit: the 36th avenue]

These are great Christmas decorations, obviously, but I think they would be fun in other colors for pretty party decorations. You could also put them on top of a candlestick to make topiary-style decorations. You might want to attach them to a saucer or small paper plate before you put them on the candlestick.

Project Estimate:

  • 12x12 cardstock, on hand or $.50
  • 2 packages of cupcake liners, $1 each
  • Glue

Total: $2 and up
