A 3d Butterfly Wall Tutorial
Today I’m going to share a little DIY tutorial that I know many of you might have already seen as it’s part of the recently released Handmade Happy, free online craft magazine. I had so much fun creating this tutorial for you guys, what I liked most, was the fact that it was simple to do! So let’s get on it!
What do you think of those fabulous crochet garlands I have hanging up? The granny square garland was made by the gorgeous Ayda of cafenohut blog and the little crochet heart garland was created by Manuela from Bleu et Rose who owns the beautiiful dawanda store. I love using my wall to stick up all my favourite products, embellishments, magazine tear outs and anything that inspires me. It might need to be repainted soon but it keeps me happy and constantly inspired. Shall we get started?
For this tutorial you will need:
Vellum sheets (to fit in your printer)
Ink Jet Printer
White Tac (the white version of blue tac depending on the colour of your walls!)
This tutorial is such a simple project to do! Just download the clip art from the link above, choose your favourite butterflies and print out on the vellum. I printed 3 pages of butterflies then chose my favourite mix of colours to put on the wall.
When you have cut your butterflies out, bend the wings gently on each side of the butterfly body to make it ‘3d’. Attach your white tac to the underside of the body and stick to your wall! Done and done! I like to keep projects simple and there are plenty of great projects in the magazine from the lovely ladies!
