yarn woven butterfly

This project is intended for kids ages 4+.
Step 1

Lay two craft sticks on top of each other overlapping in the middle. Use yarn to wrap around them to hold in place. Continue to wrap the yarn until the middle is covered.
TIP: Use a dab of glue to attach the craft sticks prior to wrapping. Let dry.

Step 2

Use a different yarn and wrap each side. Begin by wrapping around, over, and under the two craft sticks. Once finished, tie a knot to the original yarn thread in the back. Repeat on the opposite side.

Step 3

Bend a chenille pipe cleaner in half. Lay it over the middle of the butterfly. Slide two beads on the bottom and twist to hold in place. Slide another bead on the top and twist to hold in place.

Step 4

Curl the remaining pipe cleaners for antenna.

Step 5

Add your design to the craft sticks with markers.
