Kid’s craft: Wacky daffodils for Mother’s Day

As an avid baker, I have muffin cup liners for every season and occasion.

Inevitably, there are a few of each pattern left over from a batch of cupcakes.

Why not let the kids use them to make a bouquet of flowers for mom this Mother’s Day?

Daffodils are a sure sign of spring and these little, bopping buds will make her smile.


  • Standard and mini size muffin cup liners
  • Green pipe cleaners
  • Small white pom-poms
  • Glue (white tacky glue or Mod Podge works best)
  • Scissors
  • Pencil, if needed


  1. Fold standard size muffin cup liner in half, three times.
  2. Cut into a curved point, stopping about halfway down.
  3. Unfold completely and flatten with pattern side up.
  4. Glue a mini muffin cup liner to the center. Let dry.
  5. Glue 1-3 (depending on size) pom-poms to the end of a pipe cleaner. Let dry
  6. Push the opposite end of the pipe cleaner through the center of glued muffin cup liners. (Use a pencil to start the hole if needed.)
  7. Pull pipe cleaner through until the pom-poms are in the center of the mini-muffin cup liner and bend approximately 1 inch from the back.

Repeat as many times as you would like to create a bouquet.
