Try this easy DIY with simple styrofoam floral cones and your favorite patterned cupcake liner for ruffles. While this craft is showcasing a Valentine’s Day tree, you can make these for ANY holiday!
Valentine’s Day is one of those tricky holidays that can quickly become awfully cheesy. Although we don’t do a lot of decorating, these cupcake liner trees have a way of making it into our decorating every year.
I thought it would be fun to share this craft with you today because it is such an affordable one that would be perfect to do with your family to celebrate the season.
If you have a mantle or coffee table that could use some festive décor, then you will love this easy and inexpensive project.
What I love about projects like this is that it is such an easy template to follow with so many other holidays. Decorate these foam tree trunks and turn them into Christmas trees, St. Patrick’s Day trees, Easter trees, birthday trees, or whatever else your heart desires.
Can I get a Mom’s Day Off tree to put out so I can get a break?
All you need are $10 in materials and you will have two festive trees in less than thirty minutes. Now that is a craft that I can get behind.
Best of all?
This one is SO EASY that it is a fun one to do with your kids each year. Whether you are on the hunt for Valentine’s Day or a Christmas craft, this one checks all the boxes.
Let’s get started!
Cupcake Liner Holiday Trees
2- 3-7/8 x 8-7/8 inch Styrofoam floral cones
2- 3-7/8 x 11-7/8 inch Styrofoam floral cones
Printed Cupcake Liners (holiday cupcake liners in one color or you can do layers of alternating colors and patterns)
Festive floral pick (I split one between two trees)
Directions for Holiday Cupcake Liner Trees:
Remove one cupcake liner from your package and cut off the ruffled edge. For the small trees, you will need 12 ruffled edges and for the larger trees you will need 14-16 ruffled edges.
Starting from the bottom of your tree, attach a ruffle and pin into place. For the base of the tree, you will be overlapping two ruffled edges to cover the base. Make sure that you secure the pins right at the top of the ruffle so they do not show.
Repeat the ruffling until you have reached almost the top of the base, leaving just the tip of the base exposed.
Now it is time to finish the top of your tree. Using a full cupcake liner, place it on top and press down to shape it on the top of the tree.
Add an additional ruffle (with no top) around the outside and then pin into place with a pink or red pin.
Finish with a Valentine’s Day floral pick (or a holiday floral pick of your choosing to match your theme). You can now display these on your mantle or place on a cake stand or tray for a unique addition to a coffee table.
I hope you can diy this easy craft and add a little Valentine’s Day festivity to your home. I plan to get these out every Valentine’s Day, they are just that cute!
