DIY Butterfly Specimen Wall Art
You know you’ve found a really good craft supply when you are able to put it to multiple uses. If you feel like you’ve seen these butterflies before – you have!
I am in love with these Martha Stewart butterfly stickers and used them to decorate a cupcake stand and a Mother’s Day brunch. When I was done with them they were much too pretty to throw away, so I decided to repurpose them as art that I plan to hang in our guest bedroom.
To enhance the 3D feel of the stickers and make them feel like true specimens I framed them in this cool shadow box:
You can whip up some new art for your wall in under 10 minutes. Here’s how!
Supplies for Butterfly Wall Art

- Shadow box
- Card stock
- Scotch tape
How to Make Butterfly Wall Art
1. Tape your card stock to the back of your mat (if using a mat with your shadow box):
2. Arrange your butterflies however you like. I loosely laid mine out until I found an arrangement I wanted and then stuck them down securely.
3. Finally, bend their wings a little bit to make them really look like they are flying off the page. Frame them and enjoy!
Love this! I know this is an old post but where did you purchase your shadow box frame?
Hi Karen! I purchased it at Michaels years ago. I don’t think they sell them anymore, but they do have some fun colorful shadow box options on their website like this: https://rstyle.me/+egbBEW-Ryc0GkHzGVKU4rg
