Clothespin Butterfly

We love fun activities and this adorable Clothespin Butterfly is just too cute! It is so fun to make and everyone can choose their favorite color to make.

Grab the kids and get started making these cute little butterflies. They are perfect as is but you could also add a magnet and use on the fridge. I think they also would be precious as decorations at a birthday party or tea party.

So fun and pretty!

How to make a clothespin butterfly:

First, paint the clothespin the colors of your choice.  This will be your butterfly’s body.  We set ours on a paper plate to allow it to dry.  You can also color with markers if you don’t want to paint.

Then color the coffee filters with the markers.  Use the colors that you choose.  The entire coffee filter does not have to be colored as the colors will spread in the next step.

Next spray the coffee filter with water.  We placed ours on a baking sheet for easy clean-up and used a spray bottle.  The water blends the colors together and give the wings a vibrant look!

We love doing this step.  Set them aside to dry.  Luckily they do not take long since the coffee filters are a thin material.

Now it’s time to assembly your butterfly!  Once the coffee filters are dried, singe the filter in the middle and pin with the clothes pin.

Then use the markers to add eyes and decorate the clothespin if you would like. You can also use googly eyes if you prefer.

Then make antennas with the pipe cleaner and glue to the top of the clothespin with a hot glue gun.
