Dream Butterfly Bedrooms on a Budget


Butterfly Themed Bedroom on a Budget What little girl wouldn’t want a butterfly themed bedroom or nursery that will inspire her to wonder about these magnificent creatures? Creating a butterfly themed bedroom can be costly, depending on how far you take it. However, there are many ways to create a butterfly garden bedroom on a budget.

Before you begin your butterfly themed bedroom, decide on your color scheme. Most girls’ rooms are pink, which is a beautiful place to start. You may also want to consider blue to reflect the sky, or green to give it a feel of a meadow. The color of the bedroom helps to determine the color of the rest of the room’s accent pieces. As a rule of thumb, if you have a pink room, you would want your larger accent pieces to be a complementary color such as blue or green. Yellow rooms look good with purple accents.

A great place to start would be hanging nylon butterflies. These butterflies have become very popular thanks to places like Pottery Barn. However, you don’t have to spend a lot to have that classic catalog look. These butterfly decorations can be hung from the ceiling or placed directly on the walls. They come in different styles, shapes, sizes and color. The possibilities are endless with these butterflies and a hot glue gun.

Butterfly Curtains: Butterfly sheers are all the rave these days, but sell for an average of $50 a panel. Get a plain sheer for $7 a panel and decorate them with 2” mini nylon butterflies at 85 cents each. Depending on how big your curtain is, your cost is about $14.42.

Butterfly Holdbacks: Now that you have your beautiful (but much less expensive) curtains, you may want something to hold your curtains back. Holdbacks can cost around $35 for a set of 2. Why spend so much when you can have something even more beautiful at a fraction of the cost? Buy some organza ribbon for $4 a roll. Take about a foot of ribbon and glue a 5” nylon butterfly at $4.95 to the center and tie them around your curtains to pull them back. Your cost? $13.95 plus extra organza with which to decorate.

Butterfly Lamps: Instead of spending $25 on a butterfly lampshade, you can take smaller 3” nylon butterflies and hot glue them to a plain lampshade. Three butterflies for $6, plain white lampshade for $3 give a grand total of $9.

Other ideas are to use butterflies as accents on picture frames, growth charts, and mirrors. The possibilities are endless.

Once you have hung all your butterflies, why not create a full butterfly garden with dragonflies, flowers, bumblebees and ladybugs?

Let your imagination take over and inspire your child to wonder!
