DIY Flights of Fancy Butterfly Grapevine Wreath

DIY Project: Flights of Fancy Wreath

DIY Project: Flights of Fancy Wreath

Cleaning out old magazines and came across this from Martha Stewart Living.  Naturally, Martha's version is more over-the-top than necessary. But, the idea is cute and could be way scaled-back for us mere mortals.

Even the simple act of spray painting the grapevine wreath could be enough. In a metallic or a bright color to complement your decor or the season.

And you can usually find fake butterflies in the floral section of your local craft store.  Those tend to be colorful and busy, so maybe dust those with a light coat of spray paint too.

So while I wouldn't put the effort in to try out the original, it's still pretty and inspiring to check out!  Go to the original project tutorial, including videos, HERE.
