After a year of collecting cupcake Christmas ornaments on sale (tip: wait till after Christmas to scoop these up, they end up going back on sale next Christmas but cost waaaay more!), I am ready to decorate
my my daughter’s cupcake-themed mini Christmas tree! Check out the completed cupcake Christmas tree here! Here are some close-ups of my favorite cupcakes in the collection! Feast your eyes, calorie-free!
Let’s start with my favorite orny! I found this glass cupcake in a cloche ornament on eBay last year! I got it for $9.99 and though it’s used, I love it so much, especially because of its pink pedestal!! Here are some on Amazon that are very similar! I ended up cutting off it’s silver hanger and hanging it with sheer white ribbon instead This picture had better natural light so I used it instead)!
Here’s a shot of my newest ornament in the collection. I picked up two of these red cupcakes from Hobby Lobby last month! I love the glass bead glitter and the frost dripping down the cupcake liner! They retail for $8.99 but I got them during a 1/2 off promotion!
This is my most expensive cupcake ornament! I found it online at Sur la Table and watched it go from $25 down to $14 after Christmas, so I snatched it up! I didn’t want too many larger ornaments since the tree is only a three footer.
This little aqua cupcake is part of a three ornament set (see details here). I got five sets of these on sale at Macy’s! I love their vintage design and coloring!
This hot pink ornament is also part of the set with the aqua cupcake above (read here for where to buy this set!). I loved that this hot pink color is echoed in the Styrofoam cupcake ornament I found at Hobby Lobby and modified to use as the tree’s topper!
