Featured DIY: 3D Felt Butterfly Wall Display

One blog that always keeps me coming back is Make it and Love it. Ashley’s a mom of 3 and a talented crafter — and she always has a cool idea or tutorial to share. I was perusing through her archives when I came across this super easy — and creative! — 3D Felt Butterfly Wall Display tutorial.

Ashley made these butterflies for her kiddo’s toddler room, but you could make them in any shape — cars, stars, trains or crowns, just to give you a few ideas.

Visit Make it and Love it for all the details on how to make this 3D butterfly wall display. And if you’re equally smitten with the 2D Clothes and Clothesline featured in this picture, there’s a tutorial for that as well!
