  • Small 6″ paper plates (the thin, cheap kind)
  • Shaving cream
  • Paint 
  • Scissors
  • Large wooden craft sticks
  • Glue
  • Markers
  • Pipe Cleaners
  • Small googly eyes (optional)

1. First, marble the backs of your paper plates, following the instructions for shaving cream marbling.  Let dry.

2. Next, cut your paper plate in half, then each half into a butterfly wing shape (cut sort of a curved “V” shape along each of the straight edges. See the photos above.)

3. Glue the wings to either side of the large craft stick with a hot glue gun (quick and easy) or a regular glue bottle (slower to dry). Glue two short pipe cleaner sections at the top of the craft stick for antennae. You now have your basic butterfly shape.

4. Finally, decorate your butterfly with marker faces and designs on the body and wings as desired. You can also glue on scrap pieces of the marbled paper plates for extra decoration as we did.
