Materials Needed:

  • butterfly punch
  • scissors
  • large sheet of poster board that matches your window trim
  • old magazines
  • double-sided tape
  • transparent tape
  • fishing line
  • measuring tape
  • yardstick or straight edge

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.)

Attach Butterflies

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.
