This craft sorta happened on accident. It is a combination of a leftover tie-dyed coffee filter from this post and the Bob & Larry Stained Glass. But boy, am I glad we stumbled upon it! I would like a few more to adorn my kitchen window because it truly is beautiful.
Here’s what you’ll need: coffee filters, markers, spray bottle with water, black piece of construction paper, scissors, contact paper. Optional: laminator.
|1. Fold a piece of black construction paper in half. Draw the outline of one side of a butterfly.|
|2. Cut out the outline and the inside of the butterfly half.|
3. Meanwhile, let your kiddo go to town coloring on the coffee filters using washable markers.
4. Spray until all of the coffee filters are wet, but not soaking. Let dry (it typically takes a couple hours).
|5. Cut out a piece of contact paper slightly larger than the butterfly outline.|
|6. Meanwhile, let your little tear the coffee filters into small pieces.|
|7. Start sticking the coffee filter pieces on the sticky side of the contact paper.|
8. Now you have two options. You can either place another piece of contact paper on the top OR you can do what I did and place it inside of a laminating sleeve and run it through the laminator (if you have one).
|(If you have a laminator, run it through.)|
|9. Then cut around the edges.|
10. Put a few pieces of tape on the back and stick it on the window or use a hole punch and hang it! Isn’t it lovely???
