I decided to make my garland with both vintage music paper and spring-themed fabrics.
The instructions are pretty easy. Simply find an image of a butterfly you like (scan google for free clip art), and cut out a bunch of butterflies from paper. If you want to use fabric like I did, iron some fusible interfacing to the back of the fabric, then cut out your butterflies. This helps the fabric stay stiff enough not to droop. You can fold your butterflies for dimension, then hot-glue to a length of ribbon. Simple!
The garland adds some interesting texture to this shutter I leaned in our dining room corner:
The butterfly colors blend in well here.
In a crafting mood, I also made more crepe paper peony flowers using Dear Lillie's tutorial you can find here. They're an unconventional baby blue, but what else would I have in this room?
More dashes of my favorite light blue:
Dreaming of spring, while here it is March 1st with snow on the ground!
