The Supplies

Starting out, these simple supplies can be found at Michael’s or another crafts store. The butterfly base mask comes in packs of 6, which could be awesome and handy for an afternoon of kids hanging around the house. Let the kids pick the paint colors and cloth colors they want, sequins and gems come in all types of colors and styles, if those are even desired. The cloth roll was a total of1/2 yard. Total cost for supplies: $20
