A great idea for kid’s creativity is a cone butterfly craft. This is one of the easiest ways to make a butterfly and is fun and creative.
From the materials you will need:
- Double-sided colored paper;
- Double-sided colored cardboard;
- White paper;
- Compasses, scissors, simple pencil, glue stick, black felt-tip pen.
When creating the body and head of the butterfly, cardboard is used, and the wings are made of colored paper. But you can make everything from cardboard or everything from paper.
Butterfly Craft Step by Step
We make a cone-body of a butterfly and a head
For a cone, you need a quarter of a circle. Draw a circle with a compass, divide it into 4 parts and take a quarter to work. To save money, you can circle the corner of colored cardboard with a compass and cut it out.
Fold the segment into a cone and glue the edges.
Draw a small circle with a compass and cut it out. This will be the head of the butterfly. Cut out circles from white paper and draw black pupils on them to make eyes. Glue the eyes on the head, draw a nose and a smile. Separately cut two thin strips to make antennae out of them.
Glue the antennae to the head and use a pencil to slightly twist their tips. Glue the head itself to the top of the cone.
We make wings
Prepare a rectangular piece of paper in any desired color.
Fold the segment in half and draw one part of the wings from the side of the fold. They can be of any shape: round, oval, elongated, wavy.
Cut along the drawn lines without using the side of the fold, and you will get excellent wings, and most importantly, they are completely identical on both sides.
At this stage, it’s time to show your creative vision by decorating the wings as you see fit. You can cut out all kinds of shapes from colored paper and glue them to the wings, outline them with felt-tip pens, paints. After the wings, glue to the body, and you get a cone butterfly craft, bright and beautiful, and most importantly, very easy to create, like all cone crafts.
