Pom Pom Butterflies Spring Craft
Pipe cleaners (cut into 3-inch pieces for antenna)
Small adhesive googly eyes (use glue if they aren’t adhesive)
Snack sized zipper bags (square or rectangle)
Paint (choose desired colors)
(Optional: tape and glue)
Paint the clothespins on the paper plate. Use a second coat of paint if needed.
Set aside and allow to dry.
Fill snack bags with a handful of pom-poms. Make sure you don’t overfill the bag.
Separate pom poms by dividing the bag in half vertically. You’ll want pom poms on the right and left of the bag and space in the center.
Press the bag down to let as much air out as possible. Then, close bag. The air in the bag will cause the bag to have trouble bunching up to create wings.
Add the googly eyes to the top of the clothespin.
Make a v shape with the pipe cleaner.
Add pipe cleaner to the clothespin to create the antenna. The clamp from the clothespin should be able to hold the pipe cleaner, but if not, you can use glue.
Gather up the middle of the bag together and place the clothespin in place to hold it together. You may even find that twisting the bag a few times in the middle is helpful. If you feel that you need tape to hold it together, you can use a piece of tape in the center.
These are a great craft to make for Spring. Pom Pom Butterflies are always a huge hit!
