Introduction: How to Make a Butterfly With Recycled Materials.
This is a project I did for a third grade class credit - I needed to make something out of at least 3 recycled items.
I was going to write this out - but my dad suggested I make it an Instructables- so I did.
Here are the items I used
1) Egg Carton
2) Empty Soda Stream bottle
3) Old decorative tinsel
4) Used drink cup
5) Sequins from an old art project
6) Buttons from a shirt
7) Old can of spray paint my dad got from the re-use section of the local hazardous waste recycle area (free!)
Stuff I needed for assembly :
Hot glue gun, Scissors, wire cutters and glitter glue.
Step 2: Cut the Feet
Cut the feet out of the egg carton with a pair of scissors
Step 3: Cutting Wings
cut out wings from drink cup. Make them round and symmetrical by cutting them stacked on top of each other.
Step 4: Paint
Paint the wings and the feet - be careful- this might get messy and stinky- do this in a ventilated area and get an adults help.
Step 5: Glue Stuff
Using a hot glue gun can be dangerous - so I let my dad do this part. Glue on the feet, wings, antennae and eyes.
Step 6: Add the Bling
I decorated my bug with glitter glue to make it cool.
Step 7: Done!
Here it is in its NEW home..... awwww cute!!!!
