1 method


  • 3 multi-colored pipe cleaners;
  • 1 pompom;
  • A pair of moving eyes;
  • Glue for the pompom.

Prepare two wires of different colors. You can use whole wires or their halves. Twist them together in the center and draw the tips aside.

Starting from the tip, twist two upper wire branches into a tight spiral.

Then, repeat the procedure with two bottom parts. Butterfly’s wings are ready.

Take the third fluffy wire of any color you like, wrap the butterfly’s central part with it to make the body; then direct the tips upwards, twist and straighten them. This will make the insect’s antennae. In fact, at this stage the butterfly is ready.


However, you can attach the pompom head and stick the eyes onto it.
