  1. Glue two popsicle sticks together to form an “X” and let the glue dry completely.
  2. Beginning in the center, start wrapping the yarn around the popsicle sticks on both halves of the “X.”
  3. Cut a pipe cleaner in half. Fold the half into a “V” and then curl the ends to form the antennae. Slide beads on to the end of the pipe cleaner.
  4. Take a second full-length pipe cleaner and wrap it around the center of the butterfly. Wrap the pipe cleaner around the antennae to hold it in place.
  5. Glue the end of the pipe cleaner to the back of the butterfly to secure it.
  6. Glue two googly eyes to the front of the butterfly.
