We've made it easy for you to join the green revolution with these plastic bag crafts. Next time you're asked, "Paper or Plastic?" think of our recycled crafts section. For starters, we're going to show you how to make this cute butterfly.
The idea is super easy. Here's what you'll need:
A plastic bag
Paint and a paintbrush
A toilet paper roll
2 pipe cleaners
Scissors(adult supervision required)
Markers, crayons, colored pencils (your choice)
Paint your toilet paper roll any color that you want. We chose red, our favorite color!
While you let the paint dry, use your scissors to cut the plastic bag in half.
Now, if the paint has dried, use your scissors again to make two slits on both sides of the toilet paper roll.
Take the plastic bag and thread it through the slits. Arrange the bag so the it opens up to look like wings.
Using a hole puncher, make two holes at the top of the toilet paper roll.
Pull a pipe cleaner through the hole, bend to fasten. Repeat for the second hole.
Using a marker, draw two eyes and a BIG smile on the face of the butterfly.
Now decorate the wings with all kinds of stickers!
That's it....You've just made a great recycled craft! Congrats!
