Button Caterpillar Craft Supplies


1. Begin by applying glue to one button at a time and press it to the craft stick. Hold in place until dry and secure.

2. Create the first layer on the craft stick. Then, go back and glue on a second layer to add some depth to the caterpillar.

3. Once all of your buttons have been glued on and the body made, focus on the head. Be sure you have a larger button in place for the head.

4. Add some glue to your googly eyes and press to the face of the caterpillar. Hold until secure.

5. Finish off the face by cutting a small length of pipe cleaner. Twist around your finger to create some antennae. Secure with glue to the back of the head. Your button caterpillar is now complete.

See what a fun and colorful craft this is? Gather your supplies and try making a few with your kids. It is a fun and very frugal craft they are sure to enjoy.
