Galaxy Butterfly Flower Craft Tutorial

Start by printing out a template or drawing your own butterfly (we have a tutorial on how to draw a butterfly that may be useful for younger children, although the design is simpler than the template we provide). Print out the template or draw your butterfly onto cardstock.

Cut out your pattern or drawing – fold it in half and unfold it.

Add paint to a surface – add drops, blocks and lines, colors can overlap.

Close up of butterfly – push gently to spread the paint.

Open the butterfly again. Looks nice, right? Now for the boring part. Wait for the paint to dry.

Use a toothbrush or paintbrush to apply white paint to the butterfly. This will give your painting a more galactic look.

Add a few drops or strips of glue and sprinkle gold glitter on the glue.

Grab your pom poms. If you have different sizes, glue a large one on top of the butterfly (to make the head). Glue smaller ones to the body (if you have mini pom poms, use them at the bottom of the body).

Cut toothpicks and bend the ends. Glue them to the back of a large pom pom.

All that remains is to add a pair of bulging eyes.

All has been done!
