Renovation of the house begins at the moment when the already ordinary space began to pall, it becomes uncomfortable in the rooms, and you want comfort and warmth, especially after a hard day’s work. But it is not always necessary to undertake a major change in the interior - you can get by with minimal cash and power costs to make the home more pleasant for rest and family entertainment. On the walls and ceiling, you can make a small addition - decorative butterflies, which visually change the perception of the room as a whole.
What is this element in the decor?
Depending on what type of butterfly is chosen for home decoration, they can be divided into several options:
- Simple adhesive (application).
- Drawing on the surface.
- Application 3D.
In addition to the standard classification, butterflies for the interior vary in size, shape and materials of their manufacture.
What can be made decorations?
Before you start manufacturing it is worth considering where the butterflies will be placed. Today they are made of the most different types of material:
- Foam rubber.
- Old photos.
Independent production of butterflies from stencils
On the Internet, a huge number of patterns of butterflies for the decoration of walls, ceilings, furniture, windows, mirrors and doors. It is only necessary to find a suitable option and print it out on a printer, and if you wish and the ability to draw - it is worth making stencils by your own design.
Volumetric moths are becoming increasingly popular in decorating the house, especially they like to use to design any wall or cabinets. The easiest way to make them is on ready-made or drawn templates, and then cut out several options from paper for further work.
Ideas to change the decor in the house or apartment
Everyone is accustomed to the fact that the ceiling should be strictly light in color - this has been the case for many decades. Not so long ago, wallpaper was glued onto it, drywall forms were added or covered with a thick cloth, laid out with tiles. Why not "settle" on it a small colony of 3D moths flying to the light or "circling around the fire" with the desire to warm up. Composing the future design, it is worth planning in detail the placement of butterflies on the walls or ceiling, as they will be in harmony with other elements found in the room so that the interior decoration does not work out with details - this is a sign of tastelessness and not sophistication in the decor of a room.
If there is a very bright wallpaper on the walls, you can buy ready-made stickers of monochromatic butterflies of various sizes in white or beige colors (they will become soothing elements in a “flashy” decor). Making moths is one of the walls, which is located behind the sofa, placing the creation in such a way as if they are flying in a circle, creating a funnel. On the opposite side, you can place the picture in a frame with the image of small winged insects. The ceiling is best in this case to make a chandelier to match the butterflies, and on the floor to lay the same color carpet.
Little rainbow colors
You can change a little interior using patterns and paint (you can even use oil). Allowing children to help create colonies of fluttering creatures on the walls - they will be satisfied not only with the result, but also with the process. You can complement the composition with a flower carpet by the beds or a chandelier decorated with voluminous butterflies made of paper or other material.
Making your own stickers with 3D butterflies is quite simple. They can be cut out of cardboard or old photographs, then slightly arched in one direction and glued together several pieces. After that, with the help of double-sided tape, paper moths "sit down" on the wall, smoothly switching to furniture (cabinet or table).
Such repairs will update the perception of the children's room and preserve the gentle and naive atmosphere for the child living in it.
Ideas for home decor
The most suitable place in the interior for butterflies is textiles. Harmoniously selected bed linen, bedspread or curtains will fill your home with comfort and remind you of a warm summer. The most courageous can make to order or make independently large pillows or puffs with the image of these wonderful creatures and can place them along the walls on the floor. Adhesive moths look wonderfully on fabric shades - these stickers can be easily removed and replaced by others if they are damaged. The curtains can randomly "spread" these beauties made of cardboard, organza or foam.
With the help of simple patterns of moths of various sizes and multi-colored paints, you can make a large window in a baby’s room or make it smaller in the kitchen. And if you use a sponge when drawing, butterflies turn out to be textured, it would seem that they are alive.
Decorative lights from LEDs or from the usual Christmas-tree garland (the wires can be hidden under a drywall frame), and instead of mini-lampshades - transparent moths, will make the room cozier and more comfortable. Such an appliqué will look great over a table or gently fall from the ceiling (from the lamp) to the wall, and then onto the floor or go to the front door to an apartment or a room.
Despite the fact that the preparation of stencils itself takes a huge amount of time, and the process of making butterflies requires care and perseverance - yet the expected result will be obtained:
- The apartment will become cozier.
- Updated interior.
- Again, there will be a desire to spend more time at home.
At any time, when the butterflies of that or a lot of color will become annoying - you can make new ones and carefully add them to the appliqué, or perhaps repaint them in a different color. It all depends on the imagination and the desire to change something in your home.
