When a butterfly is resting on a flower, I usually enjoy such a wonderful scene for a long time. Having had the same experience as me, naturally you will love butterfly craft as well. If you are fond of butterfly, our tutorial of how to make a butterfly will definitely make you happy. Ribbon butterfly looks just like a real butterfly except for a movable body. I glue the butterfly to a hair clip. Wearing a butterfly hair clip, you can make it stay with you wherever you go. Want to have this stunning butterfly? Then follow how to make a butterfly below.

Things neededEdit

  • Polyester ribbon
  • Organza ribbon
  • Scissors
  • Glue
  • Pencil
  • Wooden clips
  • Hot melt gun
  • Hair clip
  • Lighter


  1. Cut two pieces of 8.5 ribbon and two pieces of 6.5 ribbon (including grosgrain ribbon and organza ribbon). Wrap a hair clip with ribbon. Take out an 8.5 grosgrain ribbon; fold it in half; find out the center of ribbon by pinching it in the middle; glue the center of ribbon with hot melt gun; stick it onto the clip.
  2. Bring the ends of the ribbon; loop them around and glue them down.
  3. Do the same to glue a 6 grosgrain ribbon to clip.
  4. Make the bottom half of your butterfly by looping the ends of 6.5 ribbon and glue them up.
  5. Lay the 8.5 organza ribbon over the top half of the butterfly; loop around the ends and glue them down.
  6. Do the same to the other 6.5 organza ribbon below. Then wings of butterfly all have been done.
  7. Time needs spending on body making. Wrap two pieces of 6 ribbon around a pencil; fix the ends of ribbon with wooden clip. It is better to bake it at 275 degrees for 20-25 minutes.
  8. Cut the bodies to the right size and glue them down the middle.
  9. Cut out 1 ribbon; cut the edges off from the ribbon. Hold the edges over a flame to make them curl up that will be used as antennas.
  10. Glue the two antennas onto the top of your clip. A great-looking butterfly hair clip is formed.
