Felt cupcake decoration

I made this for my friend over at BeautyU’s birthday the other week. She’s a big fan of baking and pretty things so thought this would be perfect!

You’ll need

·         Felt
·         Stuffing
·         Needle and thread
·         Scissors
·         Beads and trimming

Step 1

Draw a cupcake shape onto a piece of paper to use as a template.


Use 2 bits of paper and fold in half and cut out the template. This gives you four pieces the same size (although I only needed 3 in the end)!



Step 2

Take each paper cupcake template and cut into the “layers”.

So I’ve got…

1 – front and back
2 – bun case and cake
3 – icing and cherry!



Step 3

Use the templates to cut the correct size out of felt. (apologies for my hand shadows...stupid spotlights)!



Step 4

Check all your pieces fit together



Step 5

Using a simple running stitch sew all the pieces together, using the stitch to add the detail.



Step 6

Add extra detail. So I added some of my bargain trimming and beads to look like sprinkles!


Step 7

Use a blanket stitch to sew the front and back together, then add the stuffing and sew up and knot! I also added the hanger at this stage so the loose ends were sewn neatly inside.



Step 8

Hang up and admire!!
