Butterfly {Paint Chip} Wreath

Earlier this week, I shared this Butterfly {Paint Chip} Wreath over at Craftionary….

Now I get to share it with you guys, and show you a couple of inspirations for my wreath. I knew I wanted to incorporate butterflies, {what could be more Springy??} and I since my Valentine’s chalkboard vignette included paint chips, I thought it would be fun to try it again :)

I loved this moss butterfly wreath by a Pumpkin and a Princess, but honestly, I had just finished a different moss project and I didn’t want to deal with the mess of little green flecks all over my house again! So, I turned to one of my very favorite wreath-makers {Jen at TT&J} for inspiration…. I adored this chevron fabric wreath she made for Halloween:
I decided to go with some spring green, polka dot fabric {instead of the messy moss!} and it was SO easy! Here’s what you’ll need:
  • 1/4 yard of fabric
  • paint chips in various colors
  • wreath form
  • butterfly die-cut/paper punch
  • hot glue
{1} Gather all your materials {2} Tear approx. 2″ strips of fabric (I used 4 strips) {3} Wrap strips around your wreath form, securing with hot glue {4} Die cut (or punch) butterflies out of your paint chips {5} Fold butterflies in half down the center, creating a 3-D effect  {6} Glue the butterflies to your wreath, applying the glue only in the center, on the fold. Layer them to your desired effect. You want it to look like they just landed on your wreath!
Here is my completed “Paint Chip” Wreath:
I decided to display my new wreath on the huge Magnetic Chalkboard {upcycled from an old painting} in my dining room. I love how it adds a pop of color and whimsy to the space!
I found the perfect quote by Terri Guillemets:
I just love how it looks with my new wreath!
Hope you enjoyed my take on butterflies, paint chips and Spring! Have a great weekend!
