Paper Butterfly Wall Art

Decorating your home for the seasons can get real expensive, real fast. I’m always looking for creative ways to re-use items I already have on hand. If I think about it too much though, the ideas escape me. It’s when I have an unexpected thought that I walk away with something I like. Such was the case with Christmas decor that I turned into paper butterfly wall art just in time for spring.

Paper Butterfly Wall ArtThis project is so easy … even the highly craft-challenged individual can do this.

 

Paper Butterfly Wall ArtYou might remember my Let It Snow sign (which I found for half price) from my Christmas Home Tour. I decided to leave it up during the winter since it’s more about snow and less about Christmas. I like its rustic frame but spring is coming so it needs to go. Or does it?

 

Paper Butterfly Wall ArtI took the sign off the wall and measured a piece of brown Kraft paper to cover up its snowy message. I left as much of the white planks exposed as I possibly could. I used quality tape to attach the paper to the sign. Then it was just a matter of cutting butterflies from decorative card stock. You could also use patterned scrapbook paper.
