This craft project was inspired by something almost identical I saw in a fancy shop here in NYC. It cost almost $500, and I thought to myself, "hey, I can make that". And so I did!

  1. Start by printing out butterflies.
  2. I found mine online, simply google butterfly prints and millions comes up.
  3. Cut them out.
  4. Hot-glue or super-glue a small branch to a vintage saucer.
  5. Fold the butterflies a little, so they look more alive and simple hot-glue them all to the branches. Place a glass dome over and voila.... You have a very cool objet D'art of your own.
  6. (And it didn't cost you $500).
