This was a fun and easy craft to do and adds  color and whimsy to any room.

Assorted colors of tissue paper
Bold colored pipe cleaners
White elastic cord

1. Take assorted colors of tissue paper, cut 3 inch squares of each color.

2. Take 2 squares together (preferably different colors) and cut a butterfly shape by cutting in a circular motion and make the middle part smaller.

3. Bend a pipe cleaner of alternating color and bend in half, and twist the top for the antennae and curl them at the ends.

4. Scrunch or gather the tissue paper in the middle of the pipe cleaner.

5. Take white elastic cording and join the butterflies by putting a loop under the antennae on the first butterfly and continue to the next one, etc. Make sure you have enough space between each.

6. Hang it in a room where there’s a slight breeze and the mobile will sway gently all day.


About 2sassygal

First of all, I love to cook...not every night, but weekends are the best time to cook. I am a animal lover, especially wildlife. My next vacation would be to South Africa. To get personal and close up to wildlife would be fascinating. I like to read suspense, thriller novels. Regarding television....I like some reality shows, crime shows, comedies. I like to look at a recipe from a cookbook and do my version of it.. usually the healthier choice. I am all about substitutions, if a recipe calls for a ingredient there are dozens of ingredients you can substitute for the called-for ingredient. I like summer because I love cooking outdoors, swimming. It's just the fresh air that makes everyone want to get outside and do something. I love the air especially after the rain.... that nothing compares to that.
