LBH 12 Days of Ornaments: Day #5 AND another Sneak Peek from the Front Porch!

Welcome Back!
Thank you for visiting our blog. I hope you are enjoying our Ornament tutorials the LBH gals have shared with you this week! Today, I'm also posting another fun sneak of our NEW Front Porch Kit..."Pass the EggNog".  Here's a looksie at some more items in this fantastic kit...

Pre-orders have begun at the Little Blue House or you can order online at

Today's ornament is brought to you by Lynette Chiles...She has a yummy ornament tutorial "cooked up" for you today!

Good Morning--Lynette here...Bringing you Ornament #5 of the 12 Days of Ornaments.  I love cupcakes and I love to collect ornaments. I have joined the two to create a tasty confection to hang on your tree.

1 paper mache' cupcake (available at LBH)
1inch torn strip of fabric or yarn (chinchilla)
Tacky glue
1 1/2 X 12 strip of paper
3/4 X 12 border punched strip of paper
12" piece of trim
Hot glue
6" baker's twine

Here is aother more vintage version...

Supplies for Vintage Ornament :
Dazzle (Art Anthology) and Silver Stickles
Beads, rhinestones, Jellies, Etc. for decoration
2 1/2" square matching cardstock

To Begin:
Score and fold 1 1/2" strip of paper. Natural Vintage: 1/4" intervals, Peppermint : 1/8" intervals (challenging), Santa: Cupcake Liner
 Attach end  to end keeping hills and valleys intact.
Hot glue to bottom of cupcake form.
Add punched border at top of scallop on form overlapping liner. Your cupcake form is actually a box and if you don't want it to come apart, glue the top to the bottom. Trace the bottom of box to cardstock square and cut out. Attach to bottom. If you choose, this piece can match your liner. Santa Cupcake: I actually used a cupcake liner kit that had the liner and topper. To do this you have to remove the bottom of the liner so it will slide onto the form. You may have to add another row of trim or another punched border.
Peppermint and Santa Ornament: Frosting: Attach chinchilla beginning at top of trim and swirl onto top attaching with hot glue or tacky glue.

Tie 6" length of baker's twine in an overhand knot at the end. Glue knot to top of cupcake.

Continue to swirl and attach yarn to top of form.

Vintage Ornament: Use 1" torn strip of onasburg or muslin fabric. Start above trim and swirl and twist attaching with hot glue or tacky glue. Attach hanger as above. Brush on Dazzle by Art Anthology before adding decorations. Brush on silver stickles to liner.
Since cupcakes are all the craze, I am sure you have seen many ways to decorate them. It would be fun to make these confections for a Friend's Birthday or for other seasons.
Hope you enjoy your cupcake - Yum!!!!!!
