Butterflies create a light, delicate ambience when they are hung as decorations in a space. The butterfly motif is a common theme for a little girl's bedroom but can also be found in gardens, sun rooms, on windows and floating on mobiles in many locations. This whimsical decoration is likely to produce pleasure and delight when it is discovered in unlikely locations.

Butterfly Mobiles

A butterfly mobile can be simply made with faux butterflies constructed from fabric and wire. These butterflies are suspended from transparent fishing line from the arms of a mobile. The mobile can be hung in a kitchen, child's bedroom or playroom. You can attach the mobile to a motor, and the butterflies will fly and flutter about. Children love moving colour, even as infants. Such a mobile will delight both child and adult alike.

Wind Chimes

A common motif for wind chimes is butterflies. Plastic and wire butterflies are positioned clinging to chains hanging below the chime or posed at the top of the chime, gently moving in any breeze. These delicate chimes capture the light and gleam, attracting the eye. Position the wind chime on a porch, deck or pergola where the sight and sound are a reward for visitors and guests.

Sun Catchers

Small, imitation stained glass panels called sun catchers are available made of transparent plastic in the shape of butterflies, or you can make one yourself. These butterflies are light and transparent. Select a butterfly sun catcher kit at a craft store. Place the metal frame of the butterfly on foil in a shallow baking pan. Pour the colourful plastic crystals into each wing and body section of the frame. Place the pan in a heated oven and melt the plastic. Remove the sun catcher and let it cool before handling it. Use a suction cup and hook to hang the butterfly in a window.

Solar Lights

Party-style solar lights are available in butterfly shapes. These little lights can be suspended from tree branches, shepherd's hooks, planter hangers, patio umbrellas and porch roofs to create a playful and charming setting for an evening backyard party. Solar lights last up to 10 hours per charge, allowing you and your guests an evening of light and fun. These lights are sold in the garden department at big-box retail stores, home improvement retailers and online.
