This is such a cute little craft idea.
I got the inspiration from my son’s preschool teacher. He came home a few days ago with this absolutely beautiful little butterfly in his folder, made from a simple round coffee filter, painted in the most beautiful colors. So over the weekend we sat down and recreated those paper filter butterflies at home.
So simple and so fun! I really don’t know who had more fun with this craft project – me or the kids!
Those glittery sparkly little butterflies look beautiful around the house and they really add such a sweet light Summery feel!
Here is what you need:
Paper Coffee filters, round white or brown
Acrylic Paint in different colors
- start by painting your coffee filters with the acrylic paints
- while paint is still damp add glitter and let it dry. We put ours outside for 2 hours!
- once the filters are dry crunch the paper filter in the middle and twist the pipe cleaners around the middle, so they represent the antennas of the butterfly
