Styrofoam Cup Peacock

By: Chris Molnar for

Want to make a craft using supplies you already have on hand? Check out the styrofoam cup peacock, a fun project for the kids from Chris Molnar. This styrofoam ball craft recycles cups, feathers, and more from your cabinet.

Styrofoam Cup Peacock


  • Orange foam paper, 1/16 inch thick
  • Feathers, various colors
  • Googly eyes
  • Aleene's® Quick Dry Tacky Glue™
  • Styrofoam ball
  • Styrofoam cup
  • Half sheet of construction paper
  • Scissors
  • Blue paint
  • Paint brush


  1. With the brush, paint the Styrofoam cup blue. Set aside, top down, to dry, and paint the ball blue as well. Set aside to dry as well.
  2. With the construction paper, cut out a small, 6 inch by 3 inch rectangle. Cut the top so it forms an arch. Spread glue all over it.
  3. Collect a variety of feathers, about 6 to eight. Arrange in a fan shape, sort of like a peacock's, and stick onto the construction paper. Press down firmly to glue in place.
  4. When all is dry, place a dollop of glue on the bottom of the cup, and place the blue ball on top. Then, place a strip of glue along one side of the cup. Take the feathers and press it to the cup around the center. The construction paper will be on the back.
  5. Take the orange foam paper and cut a small notch out of it, so you have a triangle. This will be the beak.
  6. Place three small dots of glue on the front of the peacock's head, where the eyes and beak will be. Paste on two googly eyes and beak. Done!
  7. Once all is dry, your child will now have a cool-looking peacock. By placing her hand inside the cup, she will now be able to play with it as a puppet!
