Clothespin-Coffee Filter Butterflies

We have made Coffee Filter Butterflies before, but this time we used clothespins instead of pipe cleaners.  Check out our other Coffee Filter Butterfly from 2009. 
Project:  Clothespin-Coffee Filter Butterflies   Paint a coffee filter with watercolor paints.  Paint a clothespin black and sprinkle with glitter.  Let dry.  Bunch the coffee filter up - starting in the middle and working to the outside.  Secure with the clothespin. 
Materials Needed:  coffee filter, clothespin, watercolor paint, glitter, black paint, paintbrush


  1. My son made some of these in pre-school a few weeks ago. they are so cute!
