DIY Framed Butterfly Wall Art

Can you guys guess which one of these framed butterflies is my DIY?

I’ve been drooling over the framed butterfly Wall Art after a visit to Homesense and West Elm a while back.

I had planned on going back to Homesense to pick this up, but now I don’t need to because I’ve made my own!

West Elm pheromone wall art natural butterflies $225

I was inspired to create this easy and affordable DIY after watching Colin and Justin on last weeks episode of Cityline.

Colin & Justin’s DIY Butterfly Wall Art. Not sure if you can tell but the 3D mirrored butterfly is on the outside glass of the frame.

After watching the segment I came up with my own version. I didn’t like that the mirrored butterflies were on the outside of the frame. I wanted them on the inside and needed a frame with depth, so off to the Dollar store I went.

I went to Dollarama and picked up;

A picture frame (I found the one I was looking for) -$2.00

2 package of Crafts Decorative butterflies $1.25 each

The 3D mirrored butterlies are also sold at Dollarama, but I already had a pack I bought at a Kitchen Stuff Plus sale months ago. I had planned on using it somewhere in the house but I wasn’t sure where, until now.

I brought out my trusty glue gun and got to work. I glued the craft butterfly onto the 3D butterfly. I only glued the centre and NOT the sides. I flipped over the paper that came with the frame and glued the butterflies to it, put it in the frame and voila. Very easy!

This DIY was only $5! What do you guys think?

This project is great for those that like the look of the framed butterfly art but don’t like butterfly taxidermy.
