D.I.Y Butterfly Bell Jar

DIY Butterfly Bell-Jar

I saw this gorgeous butterfly bell jar in Design Sponge at Home. But it’s made with real butterflies and they are really expensive, and delicate to boot! But i loved the look of the jar. Not thinking i could ever make one. So here’s my version of a DIY Butterfly Bell-jar….

Step 4 :

Again with the hot glue gun, start gluing your butterflies to the tops of the wire.

Step 5:

Decide where you want your butterflies to sit and using a wire cutter, trim your wire accordingly. Place your wire in the foam base and then add more glue to the base to secure it in place.

Step 6:

Add your message. I hand drew mine onto kraft paper and coloured it in using a white gel pen. I then cut it out and hot glued the bottom of the paper to the base.
