Easy Rainbow Butterfly Spring Wreath. Cut butterflies out of pretty paper for a happy rainbow wreath you can use all summer long!
Easy Rainbow Butterfly Spring Wreath
I am loving rainbows for spring this year! There’s something so happy about all of the rainbow colors, especially for Spring! I made a Rainbow Egg Wreath a few weeks ago to go over our mantel. Then I made a rainbow butterfly banner to hang underneath. So as I was contemplating Spring wreaths, I knew I needed to make a matching paper butterfly wreath!

Simple Modern Rainbow Wreath
I love a simple idea. I used the same butterfly die cut and cut butterflies out in 12 different colors for this butterfly wreath.
Three Dimensional Butterflies
To make the wreath more interesting, I cut out two butterflies for each butterfly. This gives the impression of the butterfly flying! I also cut out two butterflies out of each of the 12 colors of paper. So to make the wreath the way I did you will need 4 butterflies of each color paper.

How to Make a Butterfly Rainbow Wreath
It’s super easy to make this wreath! Here are the steps to make a butterfly rainbow wreath:
Pick Out the Colors
Make this wreath in ANY colors you want! You can make it in one color or dozens!
Cut Out the Butterflies
I used my Sizzix machine and the butterly die cut. I’ve used this same die cut on a few other projects. I will link to them at the end of the post. But you can also use a butterfly punch or you can use a craft cutting machine too.
Decide How Many Butterflies You Need
My wreath form is 16 inches wide. I cut out two butterflies (four total since they are 3-dimension) in each color. 12 butterflies in total.
Take two butterflies, fold one in half and place it over the matching butterfly. Put a glue dot in the middle of the bottom butterfly and press the top butterfly to attach them together.
Butterflies on Wreath
Arrange the butterflies on the wreath before you glue them on. Evenly place the on the wreath.
Use a glue gun and glue the butterflies on the wreath.

Where Can You Hang a Butterfly Rainbow Wreath?
There are a few different ways to display this wreath. I hung it on my kitchen hood since my kitchen and family room are in the same space. I have my rainbow egg wreath on the mantel on the same wall as my rainbow wreath. But I was also thinking about hanging it on my front door. It wold be cute in a kids room too!
