Butterfly Wreath


I made this summertime wreath for the front door. I've paired the butterflies and ribbon before to make a diaper cake (sorry, no photo), so I thought this might look nice as a wreath. The grosgrain ribbon is about 1 1/2 inches wide. I found the monarch butterflies in the floral section of a craft store. I had a styrofoam wreath already and wrapped the polka dot ribbon around it. The butterflies came with wire attached, so I bent the wired and tucked it into the overlapping ribbon to secure them. I thought about using green ribbon instead, but I opted for the black with white polka dots. The orange of the monarch really pop. My husband thinks the wreath looks a little halloween-y, but I'm happy with the look.
