Need an idea for some beautiful but quick and inexpensive DIY artwork? I’m sharing the easy steps I took to make these gold butterfly pieces of art for my daughter’s nursery. This was a a little DIY project I created when we first moved in to our house, but finally getting around to posting it now that we are moving out! As I’m planning another nursery, I may have to make another version of this DIY…
As soon as we moved in, I wanted art in Taylor’s nursery but hadn’t found anything I loved. On a whim, I decided to make a couple pieces just to fill up some wall space. I originally thought these were just going to be temporary but I loved them so much, they are staying around!
I had a couple frames and some paper around the house. I also had a few butterfly name cards leftover from our wedding that my dad helped pick out. Plus, I had gold paint on hand (which is a must in my book!). So, I took a few minutes and put them all together.
I painted the pre-cut butterflies, taped them on paper and put them in a frame. SO easy, right?
The white frame pictured below is the SÖNDRUM frame from IKEA. It’s such a great price and comes with the white mat (only $6.99).
I’ll probably do a similar project in the next house, for the next nursery. I will be incorporating butterflies in some way since they remind me of my dad who loved butterflies. Still deciding on what else to do! For more of Taylor’s nursery, check out these posts:
