5 Fabulous Butterfly Crafts

Have you noticed any butterflies flitting around your garden? These beautiful, delicate creatures are perfect for crafting inspiration. From simple die cutting projects to educational crafts for kids, we’ve rounded up five fab makes inspired by these colourful critters.

5 Fabulous Butterfly Crafts

1. Butterfly wreath

Create a springtime wreath to adorn your front door in an afternoon with this simple idea. Using any kind of wreath base – rattan, covered foam, cardboard or straw – decorate with butterflies die cut from pretty floral paper and tissue paper flowers. Before you know it, you’ll have a wreath that will be the envy of the street!

2. Educational butterfly project for kids

Adults aren’t the only ones who can have fun with butterfly crafts – and this simple project can double as a science lesson. Using silk clay, tissue paper and clothes pegs, help your children recreate the lifecycle of a butterfly. Click here for the full steps as well as a handy butterfly worksheet.

3. Butterfly card

This fabulously foiled design can be made up in less than an hour with a little help from a handy TODO machine. Let the machine take care of the hard work while you come up with a pretty, butterfly-filled design made with your brightest coloured card.

4. Butterfly mobile

For an easy way to brighten up a child’s bedroom, look no further. A sweet butterfly mobile is super simple to make, but it’s sure to bring joy for years to come. To make a really dynamic looking mobile, cut out butterflies from coordinating colours of card or patterned paper using a die set with a few different sizes of butterflies, like the Precious Crafts Butterfly Die Set . Then, simply attach the butterflies to a base using different lengths of string or clear fishing wire.

5. Butterfly hair bow

Is there anything better than a fab stash-busting craft? The butterfly hair bows by Stitched by Crystal are perfect for using up bits of scrap fabric that you can’t bear to toss. Download the pattern and get to work stitching up a cute hair accessory – or, if you leave the hair clip off, you could even add this bow to another garment or accessory.
