It’s spring time, what is spring without butterflies? You can make these any color you would like. To make these cute butterflies you will need:
- Tissue paper
- Pipe cleaner
- Clothes pin
- Tiny Googly eyes
Start by cutting a 7in square out of the tissue paper. (It doesn’t need to be exact) Next, bunch the tissue together in the center to make a “bow tie” shape. This will become the butterflies’ wings. Then, pinch the center of the ‘bow tie’ inside the clothes pin.
Bend the pipe cleaner in half and twist the ends however you would like. These become the antenna. Pinch these inside the clothes pin as well. Finally, using the marker, give it some eyes.
Notes: Your butterfly body can be painted or colored with marker prior to assembling the wings. Googly eyes can also be used instead of drawing them on.
