These easy crocheted butterflies are easy enough for a beginner crocheter and can be used for many things. These would be wonderful for Mother's Day or a birthday. You could easily whip up a bunch of these to be used to decorate Mother's Day presents or to hang in a window or make them into napkin rings.

Made in thread and attaching a pin back and they also could be used for a pin or the center of a corsage. They also could be glued to a branch for a centerpiece or glued to a wreath with spring flowers for a beautiful one of a kind spring wreath. They also can be used as refrigerator magnets. The best part is they only use up that scrap yarn that you have leftover from other projects. You only have to know two basic stitches to make them, chain stitch and double crochet cluster stitch.

Time to make: about a half hour
