Easy Tie-Dye Butterflies

This project is so cute and very easy for young children.  You will need:

  • coffee filters or paper towels (we used coffee filters)
  • chenille stems
  • food coloring
Add food coloring to a small amount of water to create several different colors.

Fold coffee filter or paper towel into 8ths.  Quickly dip each corner into the desired color.  Repeat until each corner has been dipped in a color.  The color will spread and cover the entire filter.  Unfold filter and allow to dry.  Once dry, pinch the center of the filter and wrap with a chenille stem.  Fold chenille stem to create antennae.
