So…we had some cupcake liners with us and wanted to do some crafty stuff as kids love to get messy in cutting and coloring pool…and me too😋.

Instructions For Colorful Caterpillar Craft
- What Do You Need
- Cupcake Liners
- Poster Colors
- Cello Tape
- Colorful Paper Sheets
- Googly Eyes
First, take four cupcake liners (or whatever number you want). Paint them with your choice of colors. I used Poster colors for this craft.
Use colors without mixing water, as liners are used to be very thin, so with water, they can be spoiled. Let them dry properly.
Note: As I told you earlier, that liners are used to be very thin. Therefore, I prepared a single cup by pasting two cups to each other, so that it would be a bit sturdy.

After drying, take a cello tape and stick two cupcake liners with each other from the backside like the below image.
In this way, paste all the cupcake liners one after the other, and make a trail. I did not connect them in a straight line. I added them just like a little curve.
Next, cut eight strips of ten cm long each. To make its legs, just fold them in a ‘valley fold and mountain fold’ manner like the below image.
Fold all the strips and you can check my video tutorial for this pattern.
Now, after this step, you will see your colorful caterpillar engraving. For this, Paste all the folded strips to the backside of all cupcake liners as given in the below image.

And…this is the tail time😉…I mean… let’s paste your caterpillar’s tail 😋. For this task, take three strips with different lengths. Paste the three strips to one edge. Let it dry.
After drying, curl this bunch with the help of any pencil or pen. I used a paint-brush. Caterpillar’s tail is ready.
Now… paste this tail on the last cup liner of the caterpillar. Put the curled part upside and paste it at the backside of the last cup.

The antenna turn…To make its antenna, take a paper strip around five cm long. Cut a ‘v’ shaped part out of this strip as given in the below image.
Curl this strip as we did for the tail. Now paste this antenna on the first cupcake liner of the caterpillar. You can uncurl it a little bit if you find it much curly.
Here is the last step to complete your colorful caterpillar. The expressions on the face… yes… Eyes…
Paste two googly eyes on the first cup firmly, as cup liners are usually thin. Let it dry for a while.
Your colorful caterpillar is live now.
