Have any extra paper cupcake liners laying around?

Here’s how to easily make them into a cute Christmas tree ornament for the holidays!I love that this craft is easy enough for kids to do on their own, and they can use glue sticks for minimal mess. You may likely have these supplies on hand, but in case you don’t check out the dollar store first.


Cupcake Liner Christmas Tree Ornaments


*Christmas Cupcake Liners
*Glue Sticks or Tape
*Sequins, stickers, Embellishments (optional)
*Baker’s Twine , Ribbon, or Yarn


  • Flatten and fold a cupcake liner in half and then in half again.
  • Repeat that until you have 4 folded liners.
  • Stack and glue folded pieces with the pointed portion facing the top.
  • Fold another cupcake liner in half three times and glue on the bottom as the “tree trunk”.
  • Glue any sort of sequins or stickers as embellishments if desired.
  • Glue a piece of twine, ribbon, or yarn to the top to hang.easy-cupcake-liner-trees-for-kids

My kids had fun helping me make these, and I think they would also make creative present toppers as well!

What an ADORABLE & EASY craft!

    Perfect for my sons 1st grade Christmas party! Thanks

    Just an FYI about that bakers twine that you linked out to (in case anyone else is thinking of buying the Regency bakers twine, which is the first one that comes up)… It’s super thin and not like yarn at all. More like slightly thicker than dental floss. I ordered it the other day and was disappointed because I was going to use it to tie presents but it’ll probably take two or three threads to be thick enough. For the price tho, I didn’t feel like returning it

    • Lina (Hip's Modern Martha)

    Are there mini liners or standard size??

    • Lina (Hip's Modern Martha)

      Standard! But a mini liner on top would be cute too!

    • ella

      Ohh- I like the idea of doing some with mini liners though. My girls always put up a mini tree in their room and smaller ornaments with mini liners would be cute!
