Popsicle Stick Butterfly Craft Supplies
- Colored popsicle sticks
- Pipe cleaners
- Googly eyes
- Colored construction paper
- Tacky glue (or hot glue gun)
Line up 3 or 4 popsicle sticks next to each other to create the butterfly’s body. Pick the same color or different colors. Be creative!
Cut another popsicle stick in half. Glue half of the cut stick onto the top and the bottom of the sticks to hold those sticks together.
Twist the pipe cleaner to look like butterfly antennae and glue it to the back of the popsicle sticks.
Cut out various sizes of construction paper hearts. Glue the biggest set first as the wings. Then layer the
smaller ones onto them for decoration. Add glitter, glitter glue, and sequins or use markers to decorate the butterfly wings even more.
Add the googly eyes and a construction paper smile! Add a magnet to the back, if you’d like as well.
