I saw this gorgeous butterfly bell jar in Design Sponge at Home. But it's made with real butterflies and they are really expensive, and delicate to boot! But i loved the look of the jar. Not thinking i could ever make one, i forgot it for awhile until i stumbled on some cute little fake butterflies at House and Garden. My sister's birthday was coming up, and i remembered the bell jar i first fell in love with and decided to try and do something similar for my sisters birthday gift! So here's my version of a DIY Butterfly Bell-jar....
ETA: Glue your covered foam base to the bottom of the bell jar using your hot glue gun.
Step 4: Again with the hot glue gun, start gluing your butterflies to the tops of the wire.
Step 6: Add your message. I hand drew mine onto kraft paper and coloured it in using a white gel pen. I then cut it out and hot glued the bottom of the paper to the base.
Put the top of your bell jar back on and ta-da! You now have a gorgeous statement piece for your table. Or you can give it away as a gift....mine went to my sister for her birthday. Although, once it was complete, i fell in love with it and it was really hard to give away! Shhhh....don't tell!
Love Zina xoxo
