Coffee Filter Butterfly Craft

This is a simple and beautiful butterfly craft from coffee filters and pipe cleaners.


  • coffee filter(the flat round kind)
  • markers
  • spray bottle with water
  • pipe cleaners


  1. Decorate your coffee filter in pretty colors with markers
  2. Spray with water and let the colors bleed into each other. Allow to dry.
  3. Pinch the coffee filter in the middle and tie with a pipe cleaner. Leave some extra at the end to make the antenna.

They can also be tied together on a string to make a mobile.

Clothespin variation:

Follow the directions above, but pinch in the middle with a colorful clothespin. Use a short piece of pipe cleaner to make antenna and pinch at the top of the clothespin.
