Easter Spring Butterfly Suncatcher
Here are the supplies that you will need to make this fun diy butterfly craft:
- Clear Contact Paper
- Tissue Paper
- Glue Stick
- Card Stock Paper
- Hobby Knife
- Butterfly Template (found at the bottom of the page)
Directions to make your Spring Butterfly Sun Catcher:
After you have gathered up all of your supplies and printed your butterfly template, cut them out along the outside of the black outline.
Then, with your hobby knife, cut out the white portion of your butterfly.
Leaving only the black outline.
Next, flip it over and glue on each layer of tissue paper with your desired colors covering the entire butterfly sun catcher craft.
Your butterfly should look like this when you are finished gluing on the tissue paper.
This spring craft is really starting to come together!
We are almost done!
Then, carefully glue on the other butterfly template so that it aligns with the other side.
After that, cover both sides with your clear contact paper.
*Word of caution, the paper is super sticky. To avoid any mistakes, lay your contact paper down first and place your butterfly craft on top of it.*
Repeat the same technique for the other side.
Finally, cut the trimmings off and your beautiful butterfly sun catcher is complete!
Tape it on a window or hang it outside. Either way, it’s a welcoming addition to your home and your kids will have an absolute blast making it!
