We made these cute, little butterflies as one of our art projects. It was another fun craft to do with the kids. All you need is:
Black acrylic paint
Round coffee filters
Watercolor paints or markers
The day before the craft, paint the wooden clothespins black with an acrylic paint. Cut small pieces of pipe cleaners and fold them into a "V." Use a hot glue gun to glue them to the top of the clothespins. Spray the coffee filters (we couldn't find round coffee filters at our local grocery store so I cut pieces of crepe paper into circles) with water. Let the kids paint the coffee filters. The water will make the colors bleed. Let the "wings" dry. After they are dry "crunch" them in the middle and slip it into the hole of the clothespin. You can even attach a magnet to the back and display on the fridge.
