Don’t you just love butterflies? I certainly do. So much in fact, that I decided that I would love to look at butterflies every day of the year.
I cut off Joran cut off a couple of branches for me from his garden. I spray-painted them gold.
Then, I added some battery-powered fairy lights to the golden branches. I gathered a beautiful collection of colourful (fake) butterflies and attached those to the branches as well. Lastly, I bottled all the magic in a glass cloche.
And now, I have a magical bunch of butterflies in my own home.
I don’t need to wait for good weather or leave my house.
I think I can stare at them all day. Aren’t they pretty?
PS: I did a little make-over for some of my pages, including my page on ‘how to live a creative and playful life‘ and ‘how to change the world‘. Have a look if you’re curious!

Beautiful! Where is the battery pack/power source hidden? Cheers :)

Haha, it’s behind the cloche. The electric wire is very thin, so you can just put the glass over it and it remains stable.

Where you buy butterfly?

I bought them at a small local shop (in Eindhoven), but I wouldn’t know where to get them elsewhere or online.. Sorry I can’t be of more help in this area.

Did you use any glue at all?

No I didn’t.
