These sweet treats are very simple and easy crafts to make, so I’m keeping these posts short. Also this is my busiest season and I don’t have as much time as I’d like for writing.

I turned this DIY felt cupcake into a Christmas ornament, but you could also omit the string loop and it instantly becomes felt play food! Make a dozen for your little one to use in their play kitchen.
I used a mix of shades of pink tiny seed beads to add sprinkle details to the icing.
Included in this sweet treat DIY series is also an ice cream cone and a sprinkle donut. All three patterns are on the same printable, you only need to sign up once to get all the patterns.
DIY Felt Cupcake
Felt – I used this felt in Linen and Blush. (The cherry is from a leftover scrap of Pink Coral I had. I found using red was a bit harsh.)
Seed beads – these are similar to what I used
Polyfil or wool stuffing
Tweezers – for easier stuffing
Embroidery Thread – to match
8″ String – optional
Printed pattern – make sure you print it at 100% so the sizing is correct. (Get the pattern at the end of this post.)
Embroidery scissors or snips
Steps 1 & 2
Use 2 strands of matching thread and long uneven straight stitches to add the details to the cupcake liner. Then use 1 strand of thread and a backstitch to secure the liner to the cupcake base.
Use one strand of pink thread to secure a selection of seed beads to the icing. Keep the beads away from the edges of the icing so you have room to stitch it to the backing.
Use a single matching thread and a backstitch to sew the icing in place. Then then add some backstitching between the beads to create a little dimension in the icing.
Use one strand and a tiny backstitch to secure the cherry on top of the cupcake.
Use a blanket stitch and 2 strands of thread to stitch the front and back together. Start at around the 7 o’clock mark on the liner, stitch around to the other side and use the tweezers to gently stuff it as you go around.
Step 6 (Optional)
Add a loop of string before you seal up the cupcake if you want to use it as an ornament.
