Kids will love it when they get to use their feet to make these cute butterfly prints. No matter the age, all feet will get a tickle from the paint being applied to their footsies. So much fun!

A very simple project kids can make to decorate their rooms.

Approximate Time: 15 - 20 minutes



  1. Place some holiday garland or shredded tissue paper into a plastic sandwich bag. Fold the top of the bag over and seal it with cellophane tape.
  2. Gather the bag at the center, and wrap the center with a pipe cleaner to form the butterfly body.
  3. Twist the ends of the pipe cleaner together to form the antennae.
  4. Roll the ends of the antennae into small coils. Crumple small pieces of aluminum foil into two small balls and glue the balls to the pipe cleaner coils to finish the antennae.
  5. Attach a piece of string to the butterfly body so you can hang it from the ceiling or from a curtain rod.

Hi Marie,

This would be great with candy in the wings as an adornment for gift packages.

This stick craft butterfly is fun to wave in the air like it is flying through your house. Or, use the stick as a plant stake to add something extra to an inside potted plant.
