Sometimes you just need a craft in a hurry and want to use supplies you already have on hand. Most moms have a stack of cupcake liners always hanging out in the pantry (especially if you’re me, and found really cute Santa liners that you bought 4 years ago and always forget you have until January). They are great for whipping out some afternoon crafts, and won’t cost you much. Check out some easy and fun crafts to put your cupcake liners to use!
1. Jelly Fish Cupcake Liner Craft
How cute is this craft? Not only is it perfect for an ocean-themed party or a segment about marine life in school, it’s super easy to whip up! It would look super cute flapping in the breeze of an open window or even hanging off your patio cover.

2. Cupcake Liner Ice Cream Cones
Doesn’t this craft make you long for summer days? When your kids have had enough real ice cream (aka they’re on a sugar high) then have them put their energy into making cupcake liner cones! They can use colored liners to symbolize their favorite flavor, and add glitter, sequins or gems as “toppings.” Super sweet craft- without all the sugar.

This is a wonderful craft for young kids, especially those who may not be using scissors yet. They can make their own flowers by flattening the cupcake liner and then using buttons, pom poms or other crafty materials to to make the center of each flower. This would be such a cute craft for a teacher or family member!
