    1. Choose a glass ornament to work with. I chose a clear one, but to save steps you could use a glass ornament of any color to upcycle. Think about what color you would want your "cupcake" to be.
    2. Instruction #1
    3. Choose cupcake papers that will go with your desired cupcake color and design. I chose gold tin.
    4. Instruction #2
    5. Wipe down the glass ornament with rubbing alcohol and a paper towel to remove dirt and oil. Using a makeup sponge, dab on layer of Fuchsia and allow to dry.
    6. Instruction #3
    7. Add on several more layers until an even coverage is achieved.
    8. Instruction #4
    9. Place hot glue in the bottoms of four or five cupcake papers to make a stable bottom. Place hot glue in the last paper and place ornament in the paper at an angle. Allow to cool.
    10. Instruction #5
    11. Scoop out Snow-Tex with a palette knife and place in a plastic baggie.
    12. Instruction #6
    13. Squish the Snow-Tex to one corner and cut off a tip with scissors.
    14. Instruction #7
    15. Squeeze out Snow-Tex to create "icing". Place a wooden bead on top for the "cherry". Allow to dry.
    16. Instruction #8
    17. Paint the "cherry" with Santa Red. On the "icing", paint on Clear Ice Comet with a medium flat brush.
    18. Instruction #9
    19. Paint on the sprinkles with Turquoise, Green, Yellow, and Violet Glass Paint Markers. (TIP: Paint one shape per color.) Allow to dry.
    20. Instruction #10
    21. To finish, paint the cherry with Media Gloss Varnish. Allow to dry. Add string or ribbon to hang. Personalize with the year and/or a name, if desired.
    22. Instruction #11
    23. Make even more DIY ornaments to add to a colorful, eclectic tree or give as a gift.
