Butterflies on my wall

>> Wednesday, June 15, 2011


 This is snapshot of a wall in my daughter's bathroom. I wanted something that was fun and colorful. What would be better than these lovely 3D butterflies?


Here is a closeup of the butterflies. I got these beautiful butterflies from an Etsy store called Bugsloft. Each butterfly is made from recycled cardstock paper and has beautiful hand cut detail. The butterflies are really easy to stick and can be repositioned easily. I was a little worried about how they would work with moisture but they seem to be doing perfectly fine.


This is another view of the bathroom. I did not want anything else in this room to take away from the butterflies so I went with a simple white waffle curtain from Target and white hand towels with a green trim.


 Some are even perched on the mirror on the opposite side.  The artist who makes these butterflies told me these exact words "I want these butterflies to bring you joy every time you see them" and I want to tell her that yes, they do! My daughter loves them!

Do join me on GFC/facebook/Twiiter for more home decor ideas!

I love how you arranged them on the wall and mirror. I'm wondering if a cricut could make these? You said they were cardstock....how to they attach to the wall?

How absolutely enchanting! My daughter would flip for those and would probably never be able to actually leave them on the wall. :-) Thanks so much for sharing this darling idea with us at Inspiration Friday this week!

This is adorable and adds so much character! I bet she loves it. This would also look super cute in a nursery :)

Ambika June 20, 2011 at 11:10 AM  

Cute idea! Must bring a smile to your daughters face each time she sees it :)

Sarmistha June 20, 2011 at 3:23 PM  

lovely idea.Looks cheerful!!

Condo Blues June 23, 2011 at 6:21 AM  

I love this idea. It's perfect for renters who want to add a bit of color to their walls but can't paint. How well do they hold up in a steamy bathroom?

Simple & fun! Agree w/ Condo Blues, it's perfect for renters! Visiting from Thrifty Thursday @ SBLC.

I love the flowers all over the house.

This is a very brilliant idea! I'm sure your daughter loved it! Who wouldn't? I never thought about using 3D butterflies to decorate my daughter's bedroom. I always go for pastel colored walls to make any room bright and colorful.
