Combining beautiful Autumn leaves and a few other treasures from nature to create butterflies! For this fun Fall craft, we used a hot glue gun which could burn little hands without careful supervision. Best (and more fun) to make together!

Start with:

  • Assorted Autumn Leaves
  • Pinecones (long and skinny work best)
  • Pine Needles
  • Wooden Beads
  • Hot Glue Gun

Create It!

Step 1: Heat hot glue gun and add glue to stem end of the pinecone. Attach wooden bead.

Step 2: Once glued bead has cooled, add glue to one leaf for wing and attach to pinecone.

Step 3: Repeat Step 2 three more times until four wings are attached to pinecone body.

Step 4: Add drop of glue to top of wooden bead and attach two pine needles for antennas.

Just like a real butterfly, the wings will be delicate. Handle with care!
