Waxed Paper Stained Glass Butterfly

A simple-to-make butterfly window hanging.

Supplies needed:
  • Waxed paper
  • Crayon shaving (crayons shaved with a scissors or a knife - by an adult)
  • Scissors
  • An iron
  • Holepunch
  • A few inches of string
Fold a piece of waxed paper in two.

Draw half a butterfly with the body at the fold.

Flip the paper over and draw the other half of the butterfly (using the original as your template).
Open the waxed paper and put it on a flat surface.
Put some crayon shavings on the waxed paper (and inside the butterfly).
Cover the waxed paper with another piece of waxed paper. Have an adult iron the two layers of waxed paper together on low heat (protect your iron by putting a paper towel on top of the waxed paper while ironing).
Cut out the butterfly. Punch a hole near the top. Put a string in the hole for hanging it. This butterfly looks beautiful hanging in a window.
