Cupcake Queen

It’s opening night of Silver Bella and a bag full of goodies awaits your arrival. It’s like opening your stocking on Christmas morning…full of treats and wonderful goodies. A precious Vintage Cupcake Stick was included in the bag from Lisa Kettell ( She’s published her first book, Altered Art Circus. Lisa was a vendor at Vendor Night and it was really nice to meet her.


Her kit contained a doll head on a stick, some crepe paper, a book page, 2 glittered stars and instructions. So with a little craft time today I created my “Cupcake Queen”.


I took some off-white felted wool, sewed some blue eyelet on the bottom for a ruffle and a sprinkling of sequins, then sewed it into a cone.


Made the hat from the paper and glued lace around the bottom. Took a strand of lace, tied a knot at one end and pulled it through the inside of the paper cone hat, then glued the hat on her head. Inserted the head into the top of the cone. Took some more eyelet lace and gathered it around her neck for a collar. Glued her arms underneath the collar and glued the glittered stars, one on the collar and one at the top of the hat. Threaded 2 beads on a length of copper wire and glued it into her arms.


The Cupcake Queen is ready to preside over her loyal cupcake court. Thank you Lisa!!! It was fun!!
