DIY Strawberry Treat Cups

These little Strawberry Treat Cups are very cheerful and fun to make. Filled with treats, these cute cups would be perfect for a strawberry party! 
Putti's little friend was gonna have a 'Strawberry Themed' birthday. And when her mother approached me for some strawberry activity and craft ideas, I remembered seeing these cute strawberry mini baskets at Fave Crafts here. They were too cute and she decided to make them as an activity for the kids at the party. Kids could make their own treat bags and fill it up, how fun! But with over 12 kids at the party, I decided to skip the painting part and use red cups instead. Before the party, I had atrial session at home with Putti making one of these cute cups.
Materials Needed:
  • Red Paper Cups
  • Black Marker
  • Pipe cleaners, 2 for each cup 
  • Green Felt
  • Scissors
  • White craft glue
  • Single hole punch or something pointed to poke holes in the cup
  • Flower craft foam stickers (I didn't have any so cut flowers from the yellow foam)
Use a black marker to draw little dots on the red cup which become the seeds.
  1. Use the single hole punch to make two holes on the side of the cup, just below the rim for the handle.  Cut green felt into 2-inch wide strip with edges mimicking leaves. You could use a decorative edge   scissors if you have one.
  2. Twist the two pipe cleaners together.  Insert one end of  the pipe cleaner from the outside into one of the holes in the cup, bend the end to secure. Insert the other end to the other hole on the cup, creating the handle.
  3. Apply glue to the felt  to attach it to the rim of the cup, covering the handle as well.
Cut simple flowers from yellow foam and glue it to the rim. Allow to dry. Fill with treats and line cup with tissue paper. Doesn't this Strawberry Treat Cup look adorable?
