Butterfly Wine Stamp Craft
Having fun with the kids is something that every parent needs to do. The kids will enjoy crafting something with you and while you craft you are really spending quality time bonding with them. When Liz was little we spent countless hours making fun treasures over the years and now as an empty nester we spend time together making things for her home. While I’m not in love with being an empty nester it is the circle of life so I spend more time making crafts with the nieces than I do her. But no matter what we make it isn’t about the craft, it’s about the memories being made and the time spent together while doing so. This week we enjoyed making this fun Butterfly Wine Stamp Craft to help us bring in Spring. (I’m beyond ready for that season!)
White craft paper
Assorted craft paint
2-3 wine corks (found at most craft stores if you don’t already have some on hand)
1. Begin by creating the body of the butterfly. To do this, make a long oval shape. Don’t worry about it being perfect, even a simple, thick line will do.
2. Dip the end of the wine cork into the paint of your choice. Dab the end on some scrap paper to help remove any extra paint.
3. Press the wine cork to the sides of the body. You will create four impressions in all, with two on each side of the body. Allow the paint to dry.
4. Take your marker and create the antennae on the butterfly. Simple lines with small dots on the end will do the trick.
5. Rinse your wine cork and try making butterflies in various colors, or use a new cork to start a new color.
Allow your butterflies to dry and they are then ready to be displayed. Show us your finished projects we love to see them!
