In honor of Earth Day last month, we wanted to re-use materials that you can find around the house. This is a great spring themed craft to make to for a decorative display or as a gift for Mother’s Day. Now let us begin making these colorful egg carton butterflies!


  • Egg Carton
  • Scissors
  • Kwik Stix Neon Colors
  • Pipe Cleaners
  • String


1. Start by cutting out the cups out of the egg carton. Next you’ll cut a slit in the middle of each point like the image below so that after the slits are cut you’ll be able to lay the cup flat

2.  Next you’ll flatten down the carton like the image above, and trim around each point to give it the shape of a butterfly wing.

3.  Next grab your desired Kwix Stix color, preferably the brighter the better! Beginning coloring the bodies of egg carton. Once they’re dried (only takes 90 seconds) you can take the pipe cleaners and twist them around your egg carton cups that you’ve painted to make the body of the butterfly, leaving two antennas on top.
