Butterfly Kisses and Christmas Wishes
As winter approaches, we often find ourselves longing for the vibrant colors and natural wonder of spring and summer. While we may not be able to bring back those warm days for a while yet, we can certainly invite a touch of nature into our homes during the holiday season. These super realistic Crepe Paper Butterflies will surely bring a little sunshine to your cold winter days and add some unique charm to your Christmas and holiday decor. If you just can’t get enough of the most beautiful bugs on the block, then take a look at our butterfly collection.

Due to the number of tools and required level of crafting knowledge, this is an ideal project for our advanced crafters. Creating these enchanting, lifelike crepe paper butterflies requires a bit of elbow grease but no cutting machine! Once you’ve got your pieces cut and your tools and materials gathered — it’s time to start!
Although butterflies make quite a few appearances here on the Lia Griffith website, we don’t generally highlight their potential for whimsical and wonderful holiday decor. These enchanting insects symbolize hope, transformation, and the promise of new beginnings — qualities that resonate beautifully with the spirit of the holiday season.
This project requires a bit of everything to come together. Painting, molding, shaping — this undertaking is for the true crafting aficionado! These crepe paper butterflies are a perfect opportunity to let your imagination soar and create something truly magical. Once finished, incorporate these lovely creatures as a unique addition to your winter decor by adding them as a finishing touch to your gifts or placing them among the branches of your tree. If you prefer a more permanent display, place them in a frame by adding a dot of hot glue to their feet and securing them to a sheet of paper within the frame.
We’d love to see your interpretation of this delightful project! Share your creations with us on our crafter’s community page, or use the hashtag #MadeWithLia on Instagram.
