Making butterflies out of silk ribbons is easy and fun to do. Making the body out of a craft stick decorated with glitter sticker glue is what makes this flashy. A butterfly themed wedding is great for any summer wedding date.

Instructions To Make A Butterfly Flowers Wedding Centerpieces :
1. Take each of your metal rods or sticks and wrap them with green flower wrapping tape.
2. Tie a loose bow around the top of a metal rod with your thick craft bow.
3. String your pipe cleaner through the top of the middle knott forming it into the butterfly antenea.
4. Loop the free flowing piece of your ribbon up under your bow forming the bottom wings of your butterfly.
5. Tighten the bow, shape the butterfly so that wings are full enough and even. Be sure to have the good side of your ribbon show out. Use your glue gun to make sure everything remains in perfect position..
6. Fill your hurricane flower vase with water. Then add your long stemmed flowers and your long stemmed butterflies. If you have three butterflies, be sure to have a few more flowers to make an elegant ratio.
7. You may want to wrap the stems of your flowers with the flower wrapping tape.
8. Another idea would be to wrap the ribbon used to make the butterflies around your vase and tie into a bow. For simplicity sake, we have not done so.
9. Now you have a handmade wedding centerpiece that will give your wedding reception an elegant garden theme!
