Every room deserves to be adorned with Beautiful Pretty decorations and what better way than to make some yourself. That is exactly what ive done here with some left over Wallpaper and a Photo frame.
Having just finished building our New Conservatory, it is a total blank canvas with no decorations, well it doesn’t even have any furniture yet :/…I needed to wallpaper one wall which is on the back of the house but it didn’t take up the whole 2 rolls that we purchased so there is plenty of it left.
I hate seeing anything go to waste and with the Conservatory being new its yet to receive any decorations, ornaments, pictures etc.
So I decided to create my own beautiful butterfly art from the left over wallpaper with a Photo frame I bought from Poundland.
This is How I did it:
- I purchased a Photoframe from Poundland for, you guessed it £1.00. Im a big lover of Oak and although this is just a cheap frame it does look like Oak wood. I saved abit of Wallpaper that was left over from wallpapering the Conservatory and pulled out my Fiskars Butterfly Paper Punch.
- Using my paper punch, I pressed out lots of butterflies… I love Paper punches as they so easy to use and they can cut out lots of perfect shapes in a very quick short space of time.
- I knew I wanted vertical lines of butterflies, but wasn’t sure how many fitted, so I laid on the table next to my frame and practiced the layout before trying to stick them on.
- I cut up some double sided foam stick tape into little squares then put them on the back of my butterflies. I could of maybes used hot glue? but thought the tape would be less messy. I removed the packaging paper from inside the frame and attached the back on it. I then stuck the butterflies onto of the glass and lifted the wings up to give more of a 3D look.
Doesn’t it look pretty?
