Spring Butterfly Pennant Wreath. Celebrate spring by making this simple wreath with butterflies cut out of cardstock and a big pennant in the middle and a spring saying!
Spring Butterfly Pennant Wreath
This bright and cheerful spring wreath will welcome visitors and create a festive front door or freshen up a wall for the season. I love how easy it is to create! The butterflies are cut out of scrapbook paper so it’s easy to match them to the color of your door or home decor!
Spring Wreath Ideas
My friends are sharing their DIY Spring Wreaths too! Aren’t they so pretty! Scroll down to the bottom of the post to pop over and see how they made these beautiful wreaths!
Cut Butterflies Out of Paper for Spring Wreath
Once you pick out the paper patterns you want to use on your wreath, it’s time to cut them out. There are several ways you can do this.
- Use a Die Cut Machine with a Butterfly die.
- A craft cutting machine.
- Cut butterflies using a butterfly punch.
- Buy butterfly ephemera. The gold and white butterflies are ephemera in my Pebbles line. Here are the gold and white butterflies. The black and white ones are here.
- Draw simple butterfly shapes and cut them out with a small pair of scissors.
I used my Sizzix Vagabond Die Cut Machine and a thin cuts butterfly pack with three different size butterfly shapes. If you are interested in how a Sizzix die cut machine works, I have a post about How to Use a Die Cut Machine you can check out!
Jen Hadfield Reaching Out Paper
I used my new Pebbles Jen Hadfield Reaching Out paper line for this project! You can buy the paper either individually or in a big 12×12 book! The paper line will be in JoAnn Stores this month! I am so excited!!
Create a Big Pennant
You can sew a pennant out of canvas. Or you can buy one. Here’s a link to a pair of pennants that that you can buy and use one on the wreath.
Make a Spring Saying on the Pennant
I wrote “Spread your wings and fly!” on my pennant. I think the saying is perfect to go along with butterflies! But you can spell out anything that you want. I used thicker letters from my Pebbles “The Avenue” line. I love the floral pattern on these thickers. Other ways you can add letters to your pennant are cutting out letters with a die cut machine, using thickers, cutting out letters with a craft cutting machine or hand lettering a saying with permanent pens! Thickers do have adhesive backs but since I was adding the thicker letters to fabric, I added a dab of hot glue to the back to make sure they stay on the pennant.
Attach Butterflies to Wreath
I also added the butterflies to my wreath with hot glue. If you are using the wreath inside and don’t want to damage the leaves, you can add the butterflies with glue dots instead of hot glue.
Put a Bow on Your Wreath
The last thing you will want to do is add a bow to the top of the wreath. I created the bow, then attached it to the wreath with a small piece of wire. I hung the pennant on the wreath by looping it over the bow.
Enjoy a new Spring Butterfly Wreath
Hang the wreath on your door, or on a wall or a mantel. The butterflies and spring saying will add spring cheer to your home!
Create a Spring Porch
I added my new spring butterfly wreath to my spring porch. Since my porch is covered I think the paper butterflies will be fine. If you don’t have a protected door I would either mod podge the butterflies with outdoor mod podge or laminate them before you add them to your wreath.
New Spring Porch Mats
My friend at Nicole at Nickle Designs sent me the cutest porch mats! This is the Spring Blooms mat with their black and white boho rug underneath!! Isn’t it the cutest!! Nicole hand stencils all of the mats and they are gorgeous. There are mats with seasonal and fun sayings as well as adorable mats that can go under the welcome mats. Be sure to check them out!
