Sometimes you just can’t find exactly what you want when you want it. Am I right? So, when that happens, you just have to make what you want. That’s what I did with these butterfly picks.
Butterflies are super popular right now. I am seeing them everywhere from jewelry, to clothes, to home decor. These butterflies were easy to find and if you start looking, you’ll notice butterflies everywhere, too.
Step 1: Buy Butterflies and Supplies
The first thing I did was buy these butterflies. I found them at a craft store, but I’ve linked up a bunch from Amazon for you. These butterflies came glued to a tiny little wire. I could have used this wire to simply wrap around a branch of my tree, but I wanted them to have a little movement to them and I wanted to control my placement, so I made them into picks. In order to make them into picks, I also used some floral picks and hot glue. This was super easy.
Step 2: Put Picks Together
Next, I simply wrapped the end of the wire that my butterfly was attached to around the end of the floral pick. Since, the wire still wasn’t secure, I added a drop of hot glue to secure the wire to the floral pick. I was that easy. Now I have my own DIY butterfly picks that I can add to my Mushroom and Butterfly Tree.
Step 3: Add Butterfly Picks To Tree
Finally, I was able to add these butterfly picks to my tree in very specific spaces. The pick went into the branches, but the butterfly are able to stick out from the tree because they are on the wire. I was able to fill in spaces that I wouldn’t have been able to fill if I hadn’t make these butterflies into picks.
