Pipe Cleaner Butterfly Magnets for Meals on Wheels

I made 50 of these little Pipe Cleaner Butterfly Magnets. They were simple to make - I made these into magnets but they would also look cute made into bracelets or rings. Pipe cleaners are so fun! Give your kids a bag and let them create!

Supply List:

Multicolored pipe cleaners

Wooden or plastic pony bead

Sharp scissors

Small magnets

Glue gun and glue sticks


Grab three different colors of pipe cleaners.

Twist the pipe cleaners in the middle and spread out like whiskers.

Twist the bottom color of pipe cleaners into little rounds.

Then twist the second pipe cleaner into little rounds.

Pop the pony bead onto the top of the remaining color of pipe cleaners and cut the pipe cleaner inhalf.

Turn the top pipe cleaner over into an antennae shape. 

On the back I hot glued  a small magnet.

I used the smallest magnet because  the pipe cleaners are so light. And I awlays package the treat into little bags so they can be attached to the meals.

These were so easy to make and would be perfect for girls to make at a craft or birthday party.
