My 2 year old likes to paint. She creates modern art :-)). Last week She created the below painting.

Recently I read a blog post about the butterfly ornament oh so happy together had made with her kid. Inspired by the post, my daughter and I created this butterfly ornament from her painting.

Steps Overview:
  • Take the below items Empty Glue stick, Unusable Ball ornament/pom pom, Pipe-cleaner
  • Remove the cap from the Glue stick and remove the inner plastic layer in the glue stick neck with a craft knife as shown in picture below.
  • Glue on the unusable ball ornament to the neck of the empty glue stick.
  • For the body of the butterfly, glue on red felt cloth around the empty glue stick. Glue on the pipe cleaner antennas to the back of ball ornament
