I hope you have been enjoying the first week of the National Craft Month celebration on Design Improvised! We started the week off with pom-poms and now we’re transitioning to butterflies! This floral butterfly frame craft incorporates two more of my favorite craft materials – faux flowers and inexpensive feather butterflies. I have used these butterflies in so many crafts over the years. My latest project is a fun way to transform a plain picture frame for spring!

This is a great way to give an old wood frame a makeover. If you don’t have one on hand you can head to your local thrift store. I found my large frame at the Goodwill for $1.99 and gave it a coat of light pink paint to make it as good as new! I think these frames would make the prettiest spring decor or Mother’s Day gift.

How to Make a Floral Butterfly Frame

Step 1: Clip the artificial flowers from their stems using wire cutters.

Step 2: Glue the flowers to the frame with hot glue. Start with the biggest flowers and then fill in with smaller flowers.

I was going to initially cover the entire frame with flowers, but then decided I liked how it looked with a few interspersed around the frame. I also decided midway through the craft that my frame needed a coat of paint if it was going to be showing. So I carefully painted around the flowers to make it pink. That is improvising in action, folks! However, if you want to paint your frame, I recommend you do it before adding the flowers. 🙂

Step 3: Add a few faux butterflies to the frame with a small dab of hot glue on the back.

I made a yellow picture frame version as well. For a coordinated look, stick to 2-3 colors of flowers and butterflies for your frames.
