Cupcake Case Dinosaurs

Try turning your cupcake cases into dinosaurs. The variations you could make are endless!

Skill Level


Time to Make

30 minutes per dinosaur + drying time for paint

Adult Supervision Needed


How to Make

  1. Cut a craft cupcake case in half. Take one of the halves and apply two coats of paint. Leave to dry.
  2. Cut out your dinosaur head, tail and legs from your chosen card colour and glue these in place to the non painted side of the cupcake case.
  3. Turn the dinosaur over, so the painted side of the cupcake case is facing up. Cut out some card circles from a different coloured card and glue these to the front. Leave to dry.
  4. Once dry, peel off the self-adhesive backing from one wiggle eye and stick in place. Then take a thin black pen and draw the nostril and mouth on.

Top Tip

Apply two coats of paint to the cupcake case to make sure it has full coverage.
