The Fall season brings to my mind the migrating journey of the Monarch butterfly. Tiffany Windsor has created this lovely butterfly plant stake with some Aleene’s Super Thick Tacky Glue, brown grocery bags and a couple other things. The finished butterfly reminds me of the remarkable Monarch.
ANA’S TIPS: Leave out the wooden skewer. Tape a piece of fishing line in between the layers of the butterfly and hang them from your chandelier or on your Christmas tree.
One of my favorite episodes of When Creativity Knocks is: Giving Back, Monarch Butterflies, where Megan interviews Ranger Chris at Natural Bridges State Beach in California about the Monarch. She then reads a poem: “I Never Saw Another Butterfly” by Pavel Friedman from Children’s Drawings and Poems from Terezin Concentration Camp. We tell you about The Houston Holocaust Museum Butterfly Project, and I teach you how to make a wool felt butterfly.
