Of course, there are really no better craft projects than those you can get the whole family involved with. To make these bonny butterflies, all you’ll need is a bunch of paper sheets in the color of your choosing, a pencil to trace the outline of a butterfly and scissors to cut out the shape. It’s then just a case of choosing an appropriate adhesive to stick them to the walls — a little adult supervision and it’s a perfect creative craft project for kids!



With just a couple of hours put to one side, you and those helping you out could craft dozens of these cute little critters to create any shape, design or pattern you can think of. Stick with a single color or go crazy with a collage – any way you go, you’ll be blown away by the results!

The heart design pictured here is one of our favorites, but at the same time we simply cannot resist stars, flowers or even the name of the lucky lady!
