Directions to Make Tissue Paper Butterflies

Step 1

After gathering supplies, instruct kids to decoupage the tissue paper squares onto the bubble wrap with Mod Podge and a brush, like this:

Use mod podge to add tissue paper squares to the bubble wrap!

Kids get a kick out of decoupaging bubble wrap and probably won’t be able to resist popping a small bit!

We used tissue paper in beautiful colors like white, yellow, red, green, blue, purple, red and orange tissue paper sheets.

Step 2

While the bubble wrap is drying, invite your child to paint their craft sticks black. I have also seen wooden pegs used instead of a popsicle stick which will result in a little heavier final butterfly.

Step 3

When the bubble wrap is dry, cut it into the shape of a butterfly’s wings, then put a small fold in it and secure with hot glue.

Glue the colorful bubble wrap wings to the back of the craft stick.

Add a fold in the wings so your butterfly looks more realistic.

Step 4

Using hot glue (or other type of glue) add black twine or yarn  antennae to the back of the craft stick.
