Cupcake Liner Sunset Scene


I am sure that I have told you many times that many of our craft ideas come from my 4 year old daughter. We have been painting & crafting together for the majority of her life. There is not much that we won’t try to craft with. My daughter has a tough time throwing anything away because she wants to make a craft out of everything. I think it is amazing. I love her creativity.

Cupcake Liner Baseball & Cotton Ball Cotton Candy Craft

3D Cupcake Liner Baseball Craft

This weekend we took our daughter to her first Red Sox game.

Having watched the games with her father since the day that she was born, she was excited to go to Fenway. On the drive there, she clapped & cheered as she saw signs with the Red Sox logo on them.

In the park, she had equal enthusiasm as she saw the popcorn & lemonade & witnessed her first live home run.


It was an exciting day for all of us & we might have created a Sox fan for life. To celebrate our trip to the ball park, we made a quick & easy baseball craft.

Cupcake Liner Baseball

All you will need for this is a white cupcake liner, a red & black marker and light brown & green construction paper.


Spread out your liner slightly, but do not flatten.

Draw two curved lines on either end of the liner in black marker.


Draw the stitches over the black lines with the red marker. Mai drew in her lines & I did mine.

Draw & cut a bat out of the brown construction paper.


Glue the bat to a green piece of construction paper. Glue the liner baseball to the paper as well, only apply the glue to the outside edges & glue it so that the liner is still puffed out in the center.

Mai added a ball player & a background to her craft.



We finished our baseball craft, but we weren’t quite finished with “our day at the ball park” inspired crafts. We still had one more in us.

Mai ate a lot of junk at the game. It is all part of the experience after all.



I had asked Mai what her favorite part of going to the game was. She told me that it was the cotton candy.

After she told me this, I wanted us to make a cotton candy craft using cotton balls, so we squeezed in one more craft.

Cotton Ball Cotton Candy Craft

All you will need for this craft is a piece of construction paper for your base, a piece of white construction paper (scrap will work good because you only need a small piece), pastel colored paint, glue, a magic marker & cotton balls.


Cut a long skinny triangle out of white construction paper. Draw diagonal lines on it with a magic marker.


Place your paint on a palette. Draw in the cotton candy shape over the cone to give a guideline to your child for where to place the cotton balls. You can either dip the cotton balls in the paint & then glue them into place over your cone or you may glue them first & then dab them with a paint brush later.

This is a simple craft for your child that is a great exercise in fine motor skills. That & it is cute.

Cupcake Liner Helicopter

Cupcake Liner Helicopter Craft

A couple of weeks ago we made a couple of whale crafts. During both crafts my daughter commented on how the shape of the whale looked like a plane. As I looked at it, I thought “You know she is right.” It does kind of look like a plane.


Since then I have been wanting to test out her theory, but once we got started, I opted to make a helicopter instead of a plane. I just really like the propellers. I love cupcake liner crafts. They are so quick & easy to make & the finished products are adorable.

All you need for this craft is cupcake liners, glue, markers or paint & cotton balls

Same as with the whale, you will use one full cupcake liner & one cut into an arch as shown.


Draw in propellers with markers.


Draw in a window & the landing skids.


Glue on cotton balls to form clouds.


We couldn’t just stop with one cupcake liner craft. We needed to make one more & we continued with the transportation theme.

Glue two cupcake liners next to each other, leaving a small space in between.


Draw in the center of the wheels & the axle for the pedals.


Draw in the rest of the body of the bike.


Finish off your bicycle with the seat, handle bars & pedals.

Cupcake Liner Sea Shells

Cupcake Liner Sea Shells


We have bins & bins of crafting supplies in our house. There are some days that my daughter likes to pull out all the pom poms, craft sticks & pipe cleaners and just play with them.  A couple of night ago she pulled out mini cupcake liners & said “Mama, I want to make sea shells. I want to put googly eyes on them & make them mouths with the pipe cleaners.” OK! I showed her how to make sea shells out of cupcake liners a little while back & she remembered, but she wanted to make them again with happy faces.

I am always excited when she initiates a craft. She helped me gather all of the supplies & we got to work.

Fold a liner in half to form the top half of your shell & then fold into fourths for the bottom portion. Glue into place.


Glue on googly eyes & cut sections of pipe cleaner for the smile.

We cut a bucket out of construction paper & glued it to a piece of paper & colored in our backdrop in crayon. Mai made two sea shells & put them side by side. “Mama, look they are getting married. My shell needs a dress.”

Those two do make a cute couple.


I made some happy shells too.
