Picture of Beautiful Pop Bottle Butterflies
Looking for a fun summer craft or maybe something to entertain the kids on a rainy day or maybe something for a fundraiser? Then look no further. These simple to make stained glass butterflies are the solution. I first learned to make them from a friend who sold them at craft shows to raise money for a trip to Australia. Most of the supplies you may already have lying around the house.

Step 1: Gather your supplies

You will need:
1 2-liter pop bottle- you will want to make sure that the pop bottle is clear. Don't use one that is tinted (like Mountain Dew bottles). This will mess with the paint colors.
scissors
thumbtacks
piece of wood or cork board
a simple butterfly outline
glitter glue
stained glass paint
suction cups
hot glue and glue gun or superglue
thin craft wire (for antenna- optional)

I really like this! Thank you for sharing. I am going to show this to my daughter so she can make one for her entry into the craft barn at the county fair!
