Tutorial Thursdays - Butterflies Recycled

Hi there, welcome back to Tutorial Thursdays.
Today I am going to show you how to create this butterfly out of recycled PET Bottles.

For this craft you will need:

A PET Bottle
Some Florist Wire
Gonis Dekopointers* to decorate the finished butterfly

(I use Gonis Products as I am a distributor and love their quality  If you cannot find these products in your area, you will have to substitute them. For more information on the products please email me.)

PET Recycled

Take the empty PET bottle and using a marker mark where the butterfly will be cut out of. I use the "Waist" of the bottle as it allows for the natural shape of the butterfly form.


Cut out your butterfly


Using some flower wire wrap it around the middle section of the butterfly body to create feelers and body section.


Once complete decorate your butterfly as you desire. I used Gonis neon Decopointers* to give it a colourful touch.




Attach to a card, pot plants, windows etc. (I use Gonicoll* sticky dots to apply my butterfly to surfaces as it is easy to remove and reattach, without leaving marks :))

And there you have it, a simple spring/summer decor to lighten up any space.

Now it is your turn.
