Easy Butterflies

Today I want to share with you the easiest craft, ever! It's a lot of fun and makes the cutest little butterflies. I actually saw one of the these in a patient's room at the nursing home. The patient told me his granddaughter had made it for him. Upon further inspection, I realized it was a painted coffee filter and a pipe cleaner. How easy is that??? and cheap, too! So my daughter and I got busy last night, making some for our Sunday School class bulletin board.











The supplies are easy and very inexpensive. Coffee filters, pipe cleaners, (on sale... half price at Hobby Lobby this week), and paint.

I'm sure our little girls in Sunday school would love to make these, so maybe we'll put this out as a future project at one of our "get togethers". Just thought I would share, since so many of you have kids home for the summer, who are probably "bored" already. :o)

I've seen these before, they are cute and easy. Would be good for vacation bible school. You could glue a magnet on the back, too, so you could use it on a fridge.
