Cupcake Liner Peacock Stick Puppet

We are in love with Peacock’s this week! Ever since we shared our Recycled CD Peacock Craft earlier this week we have been on a bird kick. We have already been huge bird craft fans in the past but I’m excited to share some of our new bird creations over the next week or two. I’m starting with this simple and fun Cupcake Liner Peacock Stick Puppet. It’s a colorful kid craft that is perfect for a summer afternoon or after visiting the zoo. The puppet aspect of it also creates some fun imaginative play for kids.

Supplies you will need:

We made these very similar to our Cupcake Liner Turkey Puppets, so make sure to check out that post for more tutorial pictures.1. Start by flattening and gluing your green cupcake liner onto a piece of blue cardstock paper. Feel free to use any color of cardstock you want, or even cardboard, we went with blue to go with the overall Peacock theme. Cut the cupcake liner circle out.

2. Glue your mini blue cupcake liner at the bottom of your green cupcake liner. Use your circle punch to cut out a 1 1/2-inch circle out of your blue cardstock paper. Glue it towards the top of your mini blue cupcake liner.


3. Use your scissors to cut slits around the green cupcake liner to look like peacock feathers. Glue blue sequins around the green cupcake liners.4. Glue a small blue feathers onto the back of the peacock head. Glue googly eyes and a triangle beak onto the peacock face.

5. Finish your peacock by gluing it onto a jumbo craft stick with tacky glue. Let it dry for about an hour before playing with it.
