Paper butterflies wreath for a teacher is an another in a series of ideas for a group gift on the occasion of Teacher’s Day or the appreciation gift at end of the school year.
Paper butterflies wreath is an evolution of an earlier design for a frame with butterflies, which I carried out with preschoolers. I used the same butterfly template.

How to make a garland with butterflies for the teacher
🦋 The first step is to prepare the garland base. Of course, you can leave a white base, but because there is always some base through the butterfly, it is worth painting the base.
🦋 After the paint is dry, you can start installing the butterflies. Initially, I started sticking with Magic glue, but then I speeded up the process by mounting the butterflies with a pin.
🦋 The last step is to mount a ribbon with a bow to hang the garland and a butterfly with wishes.

Nothing gives more satisfaction than doing something yourself. I haven’t even thought about DIY as my hobby, I’ve just done different “projects” when it was needed. Sometimes it’s a disguise for the Masquerade Party in kindergarten. Another time, cutting out the pumpkin and baking the witch’s fingers for Haloween. Or simply organizing holiday souvenirs. Now I decided to share my realizations with you. Let’s go it together!
