Cupcakes for Christmas

Christmas is upon us. And before we head to the shops and spend money on cute trinkets, why not make your own cute trinkets! Handmade presents are the bomb!

This Christmas I’ve decided to make Adam’s family (hahaha!) cute little pin cushions shaped like yummy cupcakes! Whether it’s a useful gift or not, errrrr…. Let’s not dwell on that. Anyway, it’s harder to re-gift or chuck out handmade presents.

So here is a tutorial on how to make your own cupcake pin cushion. You need:

· Two different coloured felt

· Glue Gun

· Fabric or an old sweater

Right on! Let’s begin!

1. Fold your felt into half. Lay them on top of each other and roll away. Hot glue them once a while. Tadah! You now have a yummy looking cream top! It’s up to you how big/thick/tall you want your cream top to be!

2. Now for the paper wrapper. I use an old sweater, cut off a bit of the arms and sewed the ends together, turned it inside out and there you have it. Easy!

3. Hot glue the cream top to the pretty wrapper.

Really, It is that easy and they look delish!
