Did you know that a group of butterflies is called a kaleidoscope? Such a suitable name, right? Now consider creating a kaleidoscope on your bedroom wall. Just make lots of butterflies with colorful papers (you can recycle gift wraps for this too), and stick them on your wall.

You may also try sticking them in a certain shape, like a heart or maybe a large butterfly.

Making a Paper Butterfly Mobile

Tissue paper and toilet paper butterflies are ideal for a DIY butterfly mobile. You just need to hang them with thin strings from a frame, which can be anything from recycled embroidery hoops to small dry tree branches.

If you use different sizes of embroidery hoops, or any wooden, metal, or plastic hoops, you can make a pretty butterfly chandelier too! These are great for baby cribs.
