Spring Craft: Cupcake Garden

Free Custom Photo Calendars

Spring is here! It’s time to start planting your garden. Get everyone ready by creating our Cupcake Garden using pictures of your children and some cupcake liners.

What You’ll Need:
*Paper
*Cupcake liners
*Photos of your children
*Glue
*Crayons/colored pencils/markers

Preparation:
*We used baby photos for our version of this craft. Cut out the face in photo so it will fit inside the cupcake liner – about 1.5 inch diameter. Place inside the liner to see if it will fit and trim as needed.

Activity:
*If your cupcake liners are white, use crayons to color the inside of the liners.
*Glue the photo inside the cupcake liner.
*Glue the bottom of each cupcake liner to the paper at different heights.
*Draw the flower stems, leaves, and grass.
*Once the glue is dry, gently flatten the cupcake liner flowers.
*Send us a picture of your garden and we may post it on our site!
