This so-easy decoration can add fluttery fun to any celebration. It's a great party favor!
4 inch cardboard tube brightly colored pink and purple construction paper purple tissue paper double stick tape Chenille pipe cleaners 1 bag Staraburst Friendship Hearts 1 bag M&M's Chocolate Candies for Valentine's Day
For the butterfly's body: Cover the cardboard tube with purple tissue paper, securing it with tape. Fold the ends of the paper inside the tube. Make the butterfly wings by cutting 6 hearts (2 each of 3 different sizes) from construction paper. According to size, beginning from the largest to the smallest. Use double stick tape to adhere the three hearts together. Repeat for the other set of 3 hearts. Attach the wings to the tube. Cut 2, 2inch circles from construction paper. Tape one circle to the front of the tube for the face. Tape the second circle at the bottom of the tube, covering the opening. Bend a pipe cleaner in half, making a "V". Tape it on the back of the butterfly "face" to make antennas. Using double stick tape, attach 8 Starburst hearts down the tube for the "feet" and 2 hearts for the butterfly's eyes. Fill the tube with M&M's candies. Makes 1 butterfly.
