Creating Your Own Collection Of Mounted Butterflies

on October 04, 2014
Butterflies are some of the most beautiful creatures on the planet. They come in amazing sizes, colors and pattern that are just great to look at. There are over 15,000 species of butterflies, each dating back thousands of years. While butterflies are beautiful to look at in the outdoor, they can also be used in framed art. If you want to bring nature into your home or office, then mounted butterflies are one of the ways to go. Here are the steps to creating your own collection display of framed butterflies.

Capturing a butterfly on your own can be a difficult task. Your best bet would be to buy from an online store. Most of the butterflies sold on the internet will have their wings closed and so you'll need to relax them and leave them to dry for few minutes.

The next step involves placing your butterfly inside an envelope, folding it and cutting a hole in one or two corners to allow out moisture. Take two slightly wet towels and place the envelope between them. Take the towels and store it in a box made of plastic. To prevent formation of mildew, place moth balls near the envelope. Once you've done this, leave the butterfly there for at least 24 hours, after which it will be fully relaxed.

Take out the butterfly from box and push a pin through its thorax with the wings open. Make sure it comes out of the other side. Using the pin, mount the butterfly on foam board and let it dry. Use a strip of paper to secure the wings from top to bottom. Make sure the strip of paper overhangs and pin it to the board without piercing through the wings. Now leave the butterfly to dry for at least two days and then frame it.

Framed Butterfly Art for Your Home

A great way to accentuate your home's decor is to use Framed Butterfly art. There are many ways to display butterflies, through different forms of media and various configurations. You can get creative in how you choose to display them.

Butterflies are versatile. They can soften any room in the home. They look good in the bathroom, kitchen, bedroom, or living room. With the various color schemes of different species, you can find something to coordinate with a room's existing decor. For example, the monarch will go well with earth tones, deep reds, and browns. The blue morpho is darker toward the body, fading to a lighter shade toward the outer wings. The wing tips are outlined in black, with white dots. This butterfly will add a splash of color to white, pale blue, or gray walls.

A single framed butterfly can add a splash of color. However, framed art should not be limited to a single butterfly if you find something attractive. You can select paintings with foliage in the background and more than one butterfly. Framed Butterfly art often includes birds in the background, creating a nature scene. Paintings that tie the two together can be a great way to introduce nature into a room's decor.

If your decor is contemporary, you may want to consider an oil painting abstract framed on several canvases. This is an excellent way to express your love of the butterfly and add interest to your walls. For a more classic look, you may want to use a trio of framed canvases with butterflies resting on cherry blossoms.

The art you choose to hang on your walls can go beyond simple paintings. You can find metal art in brass or steel, shaped into butterflies. They can be framed behind glass in a box frame. Wire art and sculpted butterflies can be framed in this manner as well.X

Enjoying Framed Butterfly Art

Framed butterfly art is a great way in which to accentuate your home's décor. There are many ways in which butterflies can be displayed so you can be quite creative in the way in which you choose to display yours.

You'll soon discover that butterflies are actually quite versatile. They have a way of softening up any of your home's rooms. It doesn't matter where you put them, they'll still look good. With all of the different color schemes the various species come in, it's easy to find something to accentuate the décor you already have. For instance, a monarch would look well with Earth tones while a blue morpho would add a nice splash of color to any room that's done in white, pale blue or even gray.

While a single framed butterfly will add some color to your room, there are many attractive wall pieces that contain more than just a single butterfly. Some of these framed pieces have foliage or birds in the background to create a nature scene or they may have more than a single butterfly. Whenever both of these are tied together, you'll have a great way in which to introduce nature into a room's décor.

For those with contemporary décor, you may want to have an abstract oil painting that's been done on several canvases. This is a great way to show how much you love the butterfly while adding some interest to your walls. On the other hand, if you have more traditional décor, a trio of canvases with butterflies resting upon cherry blossoms would look wonderful.

You can choose to hang something more complex on your walls as well. There's also metal art (i.e. brass, steel) that's been shaped into butterflies. Sometimes these are inside of a glass box. This is also true of wire art and sculpted butterflies too.X
