For this week’s DIY, we switched up all the snack making for some fun arts and crafts. Check out our sped-up video of how we made them and then follow the instructions below for your own creation.

You will need:

  • 2 coffee filters
  • Washable markers (Mr. Sketch or Crayola)
  • Water
  • An eye dropper or small measuring spoon
  • 1 pipe cleaner (12″ long)
  1. Place two coffee filters on top of each other on a cookie sheet to keep the mess contained.
  2. Flatten out the coffee filters a little (enough that you can color on them).
  3. Get creative with your designs on the coffee filters and color away.
  4. Take an eyedropper or small measuring spoon and drip water onto the marker until the coffee filter is completely wet.
  5. Place your baking sheets outside in the sun to dry.
  6. Once they are dry, pull the two coffee filters apart & fold each one back and forth, accordion-style, in about 1/2″ folds.
  7. Put the two folded strips on top of each other.
  8. Twist a pipe cleaner around the middle so that the two ends point upwards in a big letter “V”. Trim the ends to make them even if you need to.
  9. Pinch the end of each pipe cleaner and curl it outwards to make a small spiral.
  10. Pull apart the folds in the coffee filter to open them up and shape your butterfly.
