Handmade Tuesday: Clothespin coffee filter butterflies

I love doing crafts with kids and this clothespin coffee filter butterflies is great for spring.  I found similar one on Pinterest .If you have not done art with coffee filters you should start they are cheap and easy to make them look awesome.

Here is what you need:
  • Clothespin
  • Markers 
  • Coffee filters
  • Tape
  • Tray
  • water
  • paint brush or bingo bottle

Take coffee filter tape it to the tray or table (suggest tray because it get’s a little messy). Let the child color with markers I usually choose one of colors or it will look muddy. After coffee filters are colored all over let them paint with water on top of coffee filter. It will be really wet and then remove the tap. Now set it aside and let it dry. Next color the clothespin I prefer black. When coffee filter is dry put it in the center cloths pin and  scrunch it together to create folds. Fan it out for desired wings.
