This butterfly is made from felt with a clothespin for the body.  It's a really easy craft for kids to do.  There are so many ways that they could decorate this felt butterfly, that each child can really personalize their own.  It's also a easy craft to do with a group of kids.  You could decorate it after you put the clothespin body on if you don't want to wait for drying time before finishing the craft (if you need a craft for a group of kids to be finished all in one sitting)


Supplies Needed to make a Felt Butterfly:

  • Felt
  • Clothespin (the kind you slide on, NOT the kind that you squeeze to open)
  • Decorations - jewels, stickers, glitter, lace, beads, etc)
  • Thin marker/Pen and Pencil
  • Glue
  • Scissors
  • Small dessert plate (or some other circle to use for a template)

Directions to make a Felt Butterfly:

  • Place a small dessert plate on your Felt upside down and trace around it with a pencil


  • After you are done tracing the circle, cut it out
  • Decorate the felt circle, making sure to not decorate down the middle where you will put on the clothespin


  • When you are done decorating and after it's dry, put the Clothespin down the middle of your circle
