The never-ending bedroom redesign for little punk continues. I feel like I’ve been working on this room For.Ev.Er! I had been going back and forth over what to do over the bed as you can see on my Pinterest board HERE. There are lots of ideas. Mostly just a jumbled look into my thoughts…they tend to be all over the place…
Then I get stuck…
Then I start doubting what I’ve already done…
Then I start hating what I’ve already done…
I refused to let that happen with this room…I mean I just bought curtain fabric, man…I gotta finish!
I wasn’t really in love with anything that I was toying with in my mind…but then I thought of doing a cascade of butterflies from her headboard up to the sky, similar to this one. I remembered Dana had done something similar with bats for Halloween and I loved that!
I tried to create on ombre effect using cream colored paper for the bottom butterflies and slowly getting brighter as it went up. Towards the top you can’t really tell because, really there aren’t that many shades of yellow 🙂
It took me a little less than 2 hours to get these all cut and hung. Just use regular scotch tape to secure to your walls. That makes it super easy to adjust as needed….and that’s good with us undecideds who like to change things up a bit.
I love how they come off her headboard…kinda like they are in her dreams, like a speech bubble. She told me the pink one is her, but she especially likes the one to the far right, who is flying away from the rest. Lord, help me!
Butterfly Template HERE
Pencil or sharpie
2 paper clips
Print out the butterfly template and fold it right along the line
Fold the paper, right sides together precisely along that line. The easiest way to do that is to get the vertical edge straight and then press down right on the line. Your paper and your crease should be straight
