Cupcake Liner Seahorses

Cupcake Liner Seahorses


It has been a rough week in our home. I had gall bladder surgery this week & have been sore & very tired. After several days of lying around on the couch, I am just plain bored. I mustered up just enough energy today to make a quick craft. Mai wanted to make seahorses. Mommy wanted to make them out of cupcake liners, but Mai decided she rather draw hers.


She did not want to partake in today’s craft with mommy, but still we worked side by side. She drew a beautiful picture, while I made the seahorse craft. Sometimes she likes to just watch & it helps give her ideas for future projects of her own.


This was luckily a quick & easy craft that only took me a few minutes & then I was back on the couch resting.

All you will need for this craft is mini cupcake liners, glue & googly eyes.

You will need 4 mini cupcake liners for each seahorse.

Fold & glue a cupcake liner in half for the body.


Fold & glue another liner & trim the ridged part away from the inside of the liner. This liner will be used to form the tail.


Use the leftover inside piece to form the curl of the tail.

Fold another in half & trim to form a seahorse head.


Fold a liner into half twice to form the fin & glue all pieces in place as shown.


Add a googly eye to finish him off. Use crayons or markers to add water waves or bubbles.

Cupcake Wrapper Dress Craft - Cute for a DIY card


Our house just cannot catch a break. This winter we traded one illness for another. With the spring finally here, we thought that our luck would change. Unfortunately, we were mistaken. Our daughter is sick again. She has a runny nose, a junky cough & laryngitis. Trying to keep an inquisitive 3 year old from talking is no easy feat.  We spent most of the night watching cartoons & eating popsicles, but then I roused my crafty daughter when I started playing with some cupcake wrappers. I had something in mind that I wanted to try with her for another day, but since I piqued her curiosity, we made them right away.

Cupcake dress

For the dress, we folded a wrapper in half & then another into quarters. We glued them down on construction paper & then glued a bowed ribbon to the middle of the two wrappers.

We drew in dress straps with markers & then drew designs on the dress.


Mai has become more independent in our crafts together & wanted to fold, glue & color her own dress.

She did let me put the bow on for her though,


While we were making the dresses, she picked one up & told me that it looked like a sea shell. She was right. It certainly did. We made one of those too.

She was having fun so much fun that she just kept going. She made a lion, so mommy did too.

Despite the lack of voice & sickness, we still had a good night.
