First, take a colored construction paper, cut eight strips from it. The strips must be six inches long.
Now curl the ends of all of the strips of paper. To do this, we used a pencil and wrap the ends of the paper around it, about halfway up.
Bend the flat ends of the curled paper strips inward. This will make the octopus legs stick out nicely after being glued to the cupcake liner.
Glue the ends of the paper strips around the edges of the cupcake liner and continue all the way around as shown in the illustrator.
Now it's time to make a face! Attach googly eyes using a glue stick. Next, use a marker to draw a mouth on the octopus.
