Butterfly clipart craft ideas to spread wings

  1. Customize clipart: Print out a blank butterfly template and let your child add their own patterns and designs to it.
  2. Butterfly masks: Transform butterfly coloring pages into masks by cutting out eye holes and attaching string or a stick to hold them up to your child’s face.
  3. Flutter frames: Use the outlines of butterflies as unique picture frames. Cut out the center of a colored butterfly clipart and place a photo behind it for a whimsical touch.
  4. Butterfly plant sticks: Attach cutouts of the colored butterflies to sticks or straws and place them into plant pots, giving your houseplants a touch of whimsical decor.
  5. Butterfly garland: Color and cut out several butterflies, then punch holes in them and string them together to create a decorative garland for your child’s room or a classroom.
  6. Magnetic flutter-by: After coloring, turn your butterfly clipart into fridge magnets. Cut out your colored butterflies and laminate for sturdiness. Glue a magnet strip to the back and use them to hold up notes or just to decorate.
  7. Butterfly mobiles: After coloring your butterfly clipart, cut them out and attach them to a hanger using string or yarn. This mobile can dance in the breeze, adding a flutter of color to any room.
