48 Beautiful Butterfly Crafts Adults Will Love To Make

Inside: A collection of butterfly DIY and craft ideas for adult crafters. All include step-by-step tutorials.

One of the first things I painted at school was a butterfly. I remember painting the wings on one side and then folding the paper over so an identical wing would print on the other—a bit like an ink block. I was an easily pleased four-year-old and thought it was magic!

I’ve never grown out of my love of butterflies, and I still get a buzz whenever I spot one in the wild. They are the most beautiful insects. People seem to associate them with spring and Easter, but I think butterfly crafts can be done all year round.
