We are re-doing our daughter’s side of the room. She loves butterflies.
We decided we would make our own ” DIY Origami Butterflies ” to create a sort of migratory pattern where the butterflies started near her brother’s side of the room and finished up by her bed.
We got out a bunch of scrapbook paper I’ve held onto now for about 5 years and she picked the colors she wanted them to be.
I downloaded a printable tutorial on how to make origami butterflies here.
She helped to make a couple by following some simple folds I taught her.
And then, I just made butterflies until we had enough to fill her wall.
Total cost for the entire project was around $12 for the scrapbook paper, origami paper and thumbtacks we used to affix each butterfly.
She’s happy with it!
And so are we!
One of these days, I might make the butterfly migration go around the entire room….as soon as the blisters on my fingertips heal from all that origami. 🙂
