This morning we woke up to nearly 4 inches of snow in our neck of the woods! Craziness!!! So my daughter, Hannah, and I decided that we should post a fun SPRING craft for you all – we worked hard on it this morning and we hope it brings you a bit of warm indoor fun today.
Here’s what you’ll need;
- Scissors – Clear Mac-Tac – Three sheets of colourful construction or scraping paper – Sparkles – Tape – 3 straws – 90 cm/35.5 in of ribbon – Three craft beads.
And our three printable butterfly templates – click on PDF files below to download and print each one >>>
Cut out butterfly templates and then cut two butterflies out of each colour of paper.
Then cut a sheet of the clear Mac-Tac to fit butterflies.
Peel cut Mac-Tac sheets and stick first side of the butterfly right-side down onto the sticky side of Mac-Tac.
With sticky side up sprinkle sparkles into the center of the butterfly.
Lay second butterfly cut out on top of the first and then apply another sheet of clear Mac-Tac on top – sticky sides together.
Cut around the outside edge of the butterfly being sure to leave some Mac-Tac around the edge so that the butterfly sticks together.
Finish the next two butterflies in the same fashion.
Once all three butterflies are finished cut straws as shown below >>>
With clear scotch tape adhere straws to center of each butterfly.
Then take cut ribbon and tie a large enough knot at bottom to hold first bead.
After first bead is on – string ribbon through the straw on the largest butterfly.
In equal lengths up ribbon – tie knots – add bead and butterfly – as pictured below >>>
Then hang and enjoy! Hopefully hanging these little butterflies will make you feel like spring is coming soon!
