– Three paper heart doilies- two large, one small
– Foam hearts (or any other lightweight decorations for the wings)
– Googly eyes
– Two pipe cleaners
– TapeInstructions:1) Glue the two large doily points together (as shown) to make the wings. Draw a mouth on the small heart doily and then glue it to the center of the wings. (I drew the mouth before gluing because I didn’t want the pen point to go through the delicate paper due to the bumps of the wings underneath.)
If your tot fancies painting, I think the butterfly wings would look amazing with some watercolor on them. Last spring, my daughter painted these simple Doily Butterflies. Red, pink, and/or purple paints would make this Valentine’s Day craft pop with color!
