Funny Little Caterpillars

Sometimes when I just can't think of a fun craft to do at the Glanworth Library, I turn to one of my favourite crafty items, buttons. I took a pipe cleaner and bent it in half, and threaded a colourful wooden bead onto the bent end. I added a bit of white glue to hold the bead in place, leaving a little bit of pipe cleaner  sticking out of the bead to look like a nose. (Hm-m, does a caterpillar have a nose??) Then I threaded on buttons, in a pattern or not, for the body. I twisted the pipe-cleaner ends together to make a short tail. For antennae, I took a small piece of pipe cleaner, wound it behind the head bead and curved up the ends. I love googly eyes so I glued them in place, then used a permanent marker to add a small smile. The kids who made button caterpillars loved them!

Aren't they adorable?

All the best,
