Batterfly Clip

Design your own patterns on the wings

This is one of my favorite spring craft. Coffee filters absorb colors pretty well and make perfect butterfly wings.

You can paint or draw any design you like on the filters. You can just dip into the water which you dropped/colored watercolor paints or acrylic color paints too.

Decorate the room with butterflies clips for any spring parties and give them as gift for your guest. You can do this project as a party project too. Your guest would love to bring home something creative original art.
