Well, hello February!  As we cruise on into this month of the winter season, we know that spring is not too far behind. 

And what comes to mind when we think of spring?  Flowers! 

Yep, that’s right.  Beautiful blossoms peeking out and covering the ground with rainbows of colorful buds!  Oh, their beauty is magical, and we just can’t wait! 

Because our favorite season is right around the corner, we have been inspired to put together these incredible cupcake liner flowers to get spring started a little early. 

These charming paper blooms are a great way to welcome the coming season in a crafty way. 

With each handmade cupcake liner flower being as unique as its maker, these pretty spring blossoms will brighten up any day. 

Not only that but creating our own flowers means we don’t have to wait another month or two for the real ones to start sprouting!

This was actually one of the crafts we did during our first homeschool year when my kids were tiny and they still want to do it every year!

Pleasing to the eye, budget friendly, and easy to make, these cupcake liner flowers are the perfect craft activity for those impatiently awaiting the beauty of spring.  

Whether you only have time to make a single-stem blossom or a whole bouquet, this flower craft project is sure to grow some happiness. 

Once created, these beautiful buds can be displayed as a handcrafted decoration, given to a special someone as a holiday gift (hello, Mother’s Day craft!), or simply made just to make you smile. 

It’s also fun to make some and then read some spring poems to connect the craft to literature!

And if carnations aren’t really you’re mom’s thing, maybe try a coffee filter sunflower craft and make sunflowers instead!

How to Make Cupcake Liner Flowers

Ages: 3+
Time: 20 minutes

Materials:

  • Cupcake Liners
  • Scissors
  • Twigs
  • Glue gun, glue stick, or school glue

Instructions:

  1. Using about 4 cupcake liners stacked on top of each other, flatten out and cut slits or petal shapes all the way around.  You can choose to go around the liners in a circle or fold the liners in halves or quarters to cut the petals.
  2. Cut a small hole in the center of the cupcake liners.  This is easiest to do with the liners folded into quarters and then cutting off a small piece of the tip.  When it is opened, there will be a hole in the middle.
  3. Open up the stack of liners and put a twig through the center holes. 
  4. Add your glue of choice to the top cupcake liner on the twig near the center.  Fold up the liner around the twig pressing firmly until glue holds.
  5. Repeat with each additional liner.  Fold and scrunch the liners up around each other until you have made a flower!
  6. The more liners used, the fuller the flower will be.
  7. Have fun!
