Paint Drop Butterfly Mobile Craft

Butterflies are a favorite of children of all ages. Each Butterfly Mobile will be unique to the child creating it and will be hanging around for a long time.


White Paper



Black Marker





School Glue


Put drops of paint on the white paper and fold in the middle of the paint. This will create a duplicate pattern for your butterfly.

When the paint dries, create a butterfly body with the black marker. Cut out.

Glue butterflies to string and tie to hanger.

No two butterflies will be alike and can be color coordinated with a child's room.

Our website was created by a mother and daughter team, adding a unique combination of crafting qualities and expertise of creativity. We started our website after numerous years in the area of craft, teaching, retail craft and owning a gift store. We decided to launch it to provide resources for teachers, therapists, and craft enthusiasts in the year 1999. Since then, the website has grown tremendously in terms of content and resource information.
