My daughter loves butterflies – and crafts – so mixing the two together was the perfect way to spend a day over the recent school holidays – and of course, I had to share!
This is a really easy craft to do, and it can be used for lots of other things as well (which I’ll list later in the post for you) – so I wanted to show you how we did it so you can have a go yourself. It’s a lovely way to put a bit of character on a wall and in your home without having to cost a lot, and it’s easier than wallpaper!
My daughter LOVES butterflies – and so I wanted to achieve the look of butterflies flying over the wall in her room – as if they were leaving the house that is her bookcase, and flying out of the window.
This seemed like a much more cost effective way of adding in her favourite things without having to change much at all – perfect! (and it means they can be easily taken off and changed as she gets older).
Having a quick scout around the internet told me very quickly that my initial idea of cutting out each and every one by hand was not one of my best ideas(!) – and I found this amazing butterfly punch** on Amazon which is part of the Martha Stewart craft product range – a new firm favourite!
TIP – there are loads of different cutters to chose from and I went for a simple shape as this would be most effective on the wall. I also went for the largest cutter I could so that the butterflies weren’t completely lost on the wall – it’s worth checking what the actual size of the cutout will be before you purchase.
