How to Make a Butterfly Door Hanger
First, we envision him hanging upright with its antenna pointing upward.
We’re going to take the piece of foam and just pre-measure. Then wedge it into one of the butterfly wings, securing with hot glue.
Now take a couple floral pins and dip them in the glue. Push that in from the side, that’s going to hold tightly between the grapevine and the foam. Repeat on the opposite side of the foam block.
Use your wire cutters to trim individual stems of the green hydrangea near the main stem. In the video, we cut that into three sections.
Fluff out your floral stems to create a sense of motion.
Dip your floral pins into the hot glue and pin those hydrangea stems into the foam block, pointing in opposite directions.
Start your bow with a 14-18″ tail. Create a 3 nice size loops, about 6″ long. Secure with a cable tie.
Add the bow at the center of the floral design using a floral pin. Trim the excess cable tie. Curl in your ribbon tails and fluff out your bow.
Use your additional stems and cream filler flowers to fill out your design. Dip each stem into the hot glue and insert them into the foam block.
