Kids' Craft: Easy Doily Treat Cups

Get the kids crafting to turn inexpensive paper doilies into cute treat cups perfect for filling with candy, cookies, small toys or a cupcake. They're a sweet surprise for Valentine's Day or Easter and make a great party favor.

H. Camille Smith

Materials Needed:

  • 6" paper doilies (2 for each cup)
  • white school glue
  • chip brush
  • wired ribbon (to create handles)
  • scissors
  • muffin tin
  • spice containers or small bottles
  • treats to fill cups: cookies, cupcakes, candy or small toys

Apply Glue

Squeeze glue onto the doily's solid center (Image 1). Using a chip brush, spread the glue evenly out to the doily's edge (Image 2).

Glue Doilies Together

Line up the edges then place a second doily on top and press together (Image 1). If adding a ribbon handle, cut a piece of wired ribbon approximately 18 to 20 inches long to leave room for tying a bow. Center then sandwich the ribbon between the two doilies (Image 2).

Form Treat Cups

To create cup shape, press glued doilies into a muffin tin and weight them with a heavy object that will fit into the tin, such as a juice glass or small food or spice container (Image 1). Allow glue to dry for at least three hours then remove cups, fill with treats and tie bows (Images 2 and 3).
