Coffee filter butterflies are an excellent craft for spring. Kids love the classic DIY as it allows them to play with color. Additionally, they get to smudge colors by spraying water. Ultimate fun, isn’t it? You can use clothespins to make the bodies of the winged beauties, but it is optional. Most of the projects only consist of the coffee filter wings of the insect and its antennae.

Coffee Filter Butterfly Instructions

For a vivid butterfly, you need to paint all the white areas of the coffee filter. You can make the insect look like flying by tipping a piece of fishing line around its “neck” and hanging it from the ceiling.

We really like how pipe cleaners have been curved to form the antennae of this butterfly. You need two coffee filters for this project.
