DIY: Coffee Filter Butterflies


This project has probably been around for YEARS….I can remember doing it as a kid and trust me- that was many years ago. 😉

Pretty self explanitory. Just look at the pictures. 


Paint, dry, scrunch and secure with anything you like.


While we were making these I thought how awesome it would be to make a butterfly family hanging from the ceiling! It can also see these as adorable baby mobiles! Just attach to an embroidery hoop. Great baby shower gift- a homemade adorable mobile.

I simply squished the filters, together and secured them with a pipe cleaner wrapping the end with a pencil to make them curly on the end.


I attached the butterflies with embroider string then to an embroider hoop. 



Bird Mobile


I’m showing you a project that I am sad to admit took a little over a month. It’s super easy and simple, I just had a hard time finding the time. It also took a while to find sticks that were the right lengths.


Material: Birds:$1 store, sticks: from field, fabric: my pile of scraps, twine

Try it out! It’ll only take you a bit, use your scraps for something and get a project done. I think this would be great for a baby’s nursery.
