I would love to say that I created this all on my own, but I didn't! I saw this at Ashley Furniture in Corpus Christi a few years ago, and snapped a picture. I was already thinking I wanted to start a blog, but I hadn't taken that leap of faith.
I thought it would be so adorable for a little girl's room (or future granddaughters)! It is so creative, but relatively easy!
Get rolled craft paper...a big roll would be better, so maybe go to a hardware store. I bought one years ago when I was shipping a bunch of stuff, and it is so cheap by the big roll!
Then, measure how tall you want the tree including if you want it bent over like they had it. Then, cut the paper that long. Crumple it up long ways. I would use a staple gun to staple it to the wall. Try to use as few of staples as possible because one day, you will want to take it down. The holes are small, so paint should fill them in. I used hot glue on a project I did, but when I pulled it off, it pulled off the paint...and the texture...oops! Luckily, it was small, so I only dabbed on some paint to cover it! So, not a good idea!
Staple it to the wall as you form the shape of the tree you want. Then, cut out butterflies using fun papers that you can get at any craft store. It would help if you had a stencil or a Cricut machine especially since there are a ton of butterflies, and of different sizes. It is sooo cute, though!! Maybe I will do it in my guest room! Ooo, now I am excited, too! Have a happy craft day!!!
