Easy To Make Watercolor Butterfly Wreaths

Butterfly crafts are one of our favorite crafts during spring. We just love butterflies and have so much fun with them. We are always looking for new ideas for them.

We have been on a wreath kick at our house. We have had so much fun making different ones of them.

Today I have a fun wreath with watercolor butterflies on them. It is fun and simple to make.

How To Make The Craft

We first painting the paper plate with our watercolors. We used greens and a mix of colors to make it look like flowers. After we finished we set the plates aside to dry.

We used one of the butterflies punched out to see how tall we needed to paint on the paper. We made 4 rows on the watercolor textured paper.

After we knew where to paint and how high, we started having fun painting the paper in fun and creative ways. We have fun with this. It was loads of fun. You could always do just one color for all the butterflies as well.

After we let the watercolor dry we then punched out the butterflies. This can be hard for younger kids to do because of how thick the paper is. If they can’t do it have them position the paper and help them punch it out. Or you could just punch the butterflies beforehand.
