Christmas Tree Cupcakes made out of ice cream cones, easy christmas treats DIYI just love these Christmas Tree cupcakes, they look to festive and pretty. and they are simple to make!  You can make them as simple or glamorous as you want. You can even use the same idea on sugar cookies, just a tip.

CHRISTMAS TREE CUPCAKES

Yields: 24 Cupcakes, Time: 60 Minutes

Ingredients:

  • 1 box white cake mix (plus required ingredients listed on the box, i.e. eggs, oil & water)
  • 1 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 3 teaspoons of vanilla extract
  • 4 cups confectioners’ sugar
  • 4 tablespoons milk
  • White Sugar Sprinkles
  • Round Colored Sprinkles
  • Green Food Coloring
  • Sugar Cones

Christmas Tree Cupcakes made out of ice cream cones, easy christmas treats DIYDirections:

1. Prepare cake batter according to box directions and bake in cupcake pan using liners.

2. While cupcakes cool, make frosting. Start by using an electric mixer to beat butter until light and fluffy. Gradually beat in confectioners’ sugar until fully incorporated. Beat in vanilla extract. Pour in milk and beat for an additional 3 minutes.

3. Place two cups of white frosting in a piping bag with a round frosting tip. Mix green food coloring in remaining frosting until you reach desired shade of green.

4. Place one sugar cone upside down onto each cupcake. Using a butter knife, spread a thin layer of green frosting to completely coat each cone.

5. Fill a piping bag with remaining green frosting and use a small closed star frosting tip to make Christmas tree branches. Start at the top and turn the cupcake, continuing adding branches to fill the entire cone.

6. Using the white frosting, pipe a thick layer around the bottom of the cone to look like snow.

7. Add white sprinkles to the “snow” and add round colored sprinkles to the “tree”.Christmas Tree Cupcakes made out of ice cream cones, easy christmas treats DIY

Baby Jesus Shadowbox Craft

I absolutely love how this craft turned out!  The best part is that it is so simple and quick to put together!  What a great, last minute gift or decoration for the season!

You will need

A shadowbox

Black vinyl

A Silhouette machine (optional, but they really are great and cut the vinyl like a dream!)

Decorative Shredded paper (the kind you get for gift baskets)

12 x 12 Scrapbook paper with a rustic look

Firstly  cut out your silhouette of baby Jesus.  I found one that I had saved on my software, but I am not sure if it was one I purchased or got from a friend so I can’t share it.  Sorry!

This would also work great if you were to cut it out of black paper and glue it to the INSIDE of the glass on your shadow box.  Just be sure you use some adhesive that won’t show up when it is dry.

Open your shadowbox and place the vinyl (or scrapbook paper) on the inside of the glass.  Now, if you are lucky and your shadowbox comes with a nice background you can avoid having to use the scrapbook paper.  Mine had a really nice burlap look to it,but I still chose to use the wood look paper because I really liked it.  This burlap looking fabric would’ve been really great too!

Now that your silhouette of Jesus is on the glass, fill the frame to your liking with the paper shreds. Once you have it the way you want it, put your paper in and close the frame.

It is really such a great piece!  The shadowbox gives it depth that just a flat frame and scrapbook paper wouldn’t give it.  What a great gift for someone on your Christmas list!
