Punch Out Butterflies
Use a butterfly punch and old magazines to create several paper butterflies.
Cut Poster Board
To create a 2-inch "header" for the butterfly garland, use a straight edge to draw a line across the long side of a piece of poster board, then cut along the line all the way across the piece of poster board. (If your window measures wider than the length of a piece of poster board, you may need to use more than one paper header taped together.)
Use transparent tape to secure paper butterflies to a length of fishing line that is equal to the height of the window, from top to bottom. Space the butterflies 4 to 6 inches apart. Repeat this step to create several more strands of butterflies.
