Is it starting to feel like spring where you are? We are in need of some sunshine and flowers here, so we decided to make our own cupcake liner poppy craft to celebrate the new season. If you’re not a fan of poppies, then you may enjoy some pinwheel daffodils or pinwheel poppies.
These Poppies are so simple ad use few materials! That makes this the perfect craft for a busy mom like you! You can even use these to decorate a home-made card to give to friends, family or neighbors. However you choose to craft with poppies, you are sure to make someone smile!

Depending on the age of children making this craft, you can choose to use a glue gun, double sided tape or even glue dots. At ages 8 and 9, my kids are well-versed in using a low-melt glue gun; but they never use one unsupervised. Children should always be supervised when using a hot glue gun.
To create the perfect poppy, we used cupcake liners of varying sizes, but you could also use white ones and color them in. If you only have one size of cupcake liners, you can vary the sizes by cutting off some of the edges. Busy moms have to be resourceful!
If you have a difficult time locating some cute, large buttons, then We got our buttons then color the center black with pen or paint.
Easy Cupcake Liner Poppies
- Start my cutting a wavy edge on the largest size of your cupcake liner. Then do the same on the smaller one (or cut a larger wavy edge if you only have ones of the same size). This is a great way to reinforce your child’s scissor skills, even the younger ones as there is no right or wrong wavy line. In fact, the more random the better.
- Then stick your two cake cases together with the smaller one on the inside before gluing your large black button on. Use this as an opportunity to discuss large and smaller sizes with your kids. We talked about how all the poppies we see are different and not symmetrical.
- Once the glue has dried, turn over and apply the paper straw with sticking tape.
- Continue on making as many poppies as you want. You could make a full bouquet that would be perfect as a teacher appreciation gift.
