Butterfly Hanger

Dress up a door knob, Easter basket, or your baby girl's room (etc.) with this simple yet beautiful boutique-looking butterfly. Hanging foam butterfly.

 

A sweet and dainty butterfly to flutter on a door knob, on a home/work wall, or even your rear view mirror. This welcomes spring and Easter, but it's cute year-round, too. For you or to give as a gift.

Approximate Time: 10 minutes

Supplies:

  • 1 wooden butterfly (50 cents at Wal-mart)
  • 10 inches of 20-gauge (or any size) wire
  • assorted beads (or your preference)
  • 1 tack
  • 1 pencil

Instructions:

  1. Using the tack, poke two symmetrical holes through the top of the butterfly's wings.

  2. At one hole, string (≈ 2 inches) wire from front-to-back. Secure by stringing one bead from the back of the butterfly, and wrap the wire around the bead at least 3 times.

  3. From the butterfly's front, wrap the wire around the pencil about 3 times to form a close and short cork-screw. Slide pencil out of wire. Closeup.
     

  4. Add one bead that won't slide down the cork-screw in the wire (unless you'd like a looser bead and/or the bead to be mid-spiral).

  5. Next, about an inch from the first cork-screw in the wire, past the bead, use the pencil to make another spiral by wrapping the wire around the pencil 2 or 3 times.

  6. Add another bead. Repeat steps 4 and 5 until the desired length of the wire is achieved.

  7. Repeat step 2, at the back of the butterfly, to secure wire. Closeup of wire hanger.
     

  8. All done. Dress up a door knob, Easter basket, or your baby girl's room, etc. with your beautiful, boutique butterfly.
