- Tissue paper (multi-colored)
- Wooden wreath (medium sized)
- Pipecleaners (multi-colored)
- Thread (could use fishing line also)
- 1/8th inch wide ribbon
The butterfly shapes are made by cutting approx. 9x6 inch pieces of tissue paper folded in half with as curve at the bottom and side (see below) but straight at the top. You then use 3 butterfly shapes for each butterfly. My son chose to use mostly one color for the top and bottom and a contrasting color in the center.
You then choose the color of pipecleaner you want to use with each butterfly.
