Create a beautiful butterfly to hang on a picture frame, plant, shelf.
: 15 minutes
: Any Age
2 pipe cleaners
2 Adhesive dots
Draw the outline of a butterfly on a piece of cardboard.
Cut it out.
Stick one adhesive dot on the top of the butterfly's head, and the other on its underbelly.
Bend the pipe cleaners into a v shape, and stick each one on an adhesive dot to make the antennae and legs.
Bend the legs slightly so that they can hang on to something.
Colour and decorate your butterfly anyway you want.
Hang it up in a location of your choosing.
