Instructions

  1. How to make a wall decal. Decorative Paper Butterflies - Step 1 1

    On a piece of paper, draw a simple butterfly shape such as this one using your pencil or pen.

    You can make it any size you want.

  2. How to make a wall decal. Decorative Paper Butterflies - Step 2 2

    Dip your brush into water and then into your desired watercolor paint color, and start painting the wings.
    DON'T WORRY IF YOU GO OUTSIDE THE LINES. IT WON'T MATTER.

    Color in the butterfly's body black.

  3. How to make a wall decal. Decorative Paper Butterflies - Step 3 3

    Start decorating your butterfly with swooshes and dots and whatever else you want on the wings.

    I used a #6 pointy round brush for this part.

  4. How to make a wall decal. Decorative Paper Butterflies - Step 4 4

    This is what mine looked like at the end of painting. Not my best work, trust me.




  5. How to make a wall decal. Decorative Paper Butterflies - Step 5 5

    Cut out your butterfly.

    This is where you get to fix mistakes like painting over the lines, and eliminating the pencil lines.

  6. How to make a wall decal. Decorative Paper Butterflies - Step 6 6

    Fold your butterfly's wings against its body to create the 3D effect.

  7. How to make a wall decal. Decorative Paper Butterflies - Step 7 7

    If you don't have double sided tape, you can use regular tape by folding it on itself and sticking it on the back of your butterfly.

    Now attack your door with your butterflies.

    TA DA! Now you have pretty 3D butterflies. Enjoy!
