Wall hanging with paper butterflies
Children will like this mobile with butterflies, although it's very simple and easy to make. You'll need glue, a piece of card stock, a relatively heavy bead (of wood, glass or plastic), a string or thread, and pictures of butterflies. If you're arty, you can draw the butterflies, otherwise cut them out of an old magazine, for example. Butterflies are a popular element of advertisements, so you shouldn't have a problem finding a suitable image.
- Cut each butterfly out.
- Trace the cut-outs onto the card stock and cut this out as well.
- Glue the two parts of each butterfly together, when the thread or string goes between them in the middle.
- Tie the bead at the bottom end of the string.
That's it, now you can use the butterflies as a mobile, wall hanging or another decoration.
