Give your walls a lift with these beautiful paper butterflies. They’re made out of wallpaper from the Resene Wallpaper Collection (design 606874) and create an eye-catching art piece.
You will need:
Step one. Trace the butterflies onto the wallpaper.
Step two. Cut the butterflies. If you’re feeling confident, layer a few pieces of wallpaper on top of each other to cut multiple butterflies at one time. To create the same effect as ours on the wall, cut out 13 butterflies.
Step three. Apply Blu Tak to the back of the butterflies and apply them to your walls in a scattered direction. Play with the layout until you’re happy.
Step four. Bend the wings back on random butterflies to create a ‘flight’ effect.
If you’d like the butterflies to be stiffer and more bendable with the wings, glue the wallpaper to cardboard before cutting.
