Pipe Cleaner Butterfly Craft – Cute for Mother’s Day Gift

I use affiliate links in some of my posts. I may earn a commission if you use my links. Full disclosure.

Here is a fun craft that I found on FaveCrafts that you can make with your child!  You can make these sweet butterflies to decorate a Mother’s Day gift! You could also glue a magnet to the belly and make some pretty refrigerator magnets. Or glue them to a long skewer or any twig from outside and stick them in a potted plant or in a vase of flowers!

Materials:

For one butterfly:

  • 3 Glitter Pipe cleaners
  • 5 pony beads
  • 2 larger beads or buttons

Instructions:

  1. Make the body: Fold a pipe cleaner in half. Fold up the folded end up a bit so the beads won’t pass through.
     
  2. Place 5 pony beads on through both ends of the pipe cleaner.
     
  3. Place the larger bead, or button on to form the head. Push all the beads to the bottom (folded end) of the pipe cleaners.
     
  4. Form the 2 ends of the pipe cleaner into spirals to form the antennae.
     
  5. Make the wings: Form one pipe cleaner into a circle. Twist the ends together, but leave 1 inch at the end for attaching it to the body of the insect. Then twist the circle together in the center to for a figure “8”. Do that with the remaining pipe cleaner as well.
     
  6. Attach to the body, between the head and the next bead, by twisting the 1 inch protruding ends of the pipe cleaners around the body of the insect. Reshape the wings and antennae.
