3D Butterfly and 3D Dragonfly Wall Art

Simple art using the 3D dragonflies and 3D butterflies from Twinkl and some art canvases from Baker Ross

My daughter recently informed me that we needed more pictures in the house. We already have lots of the kids art all over the house (we use pin boards and then rotate the art and goodies on the boards).  My home-ed mom side naturally kicked in and I suggested we could make our own – she was not too sure as she said we needed some “fancy” pictures for the guest bedroom.

Our spare room is normally a dumping ground of laundry that needs to be packed away, my husband’s home office and anything else that needs a home.  But we are getting a visitor in about 2 weeks time so we are doing a tidy up, hence my daughters insistence that we needed to add some art to the walls.

I had been saving these little canvases for myself (in my life before I had kids I actually painted) but they looked perfect for our new little project – so we had a base.  I asked if she wanted to paint something on the canvases or maybe try some sand art but she wanted a professional looking picture for the room so she was not confident enough to try either options.  And then it hit me, what if we added some of our favourite 3D butterflies.  Yes, Yes we have used these butterflies over and over and over again but when you find something as stunning as these butterflies who can really blame us.

We already had a bunch of the butterflies and dragonflies cut out from some previous projects so we started using these but also ended up printing off a few more so that we could have the colours that we wanted.

And also I am wondering if they would not actually look better in my bedroom.
