I recently told you that I love The Inside Source for the latest trends in fashion and home decor, and I often use that inspiration as themes for craft and DIY projects. This week their Home & Garden section features a “Butterflies Take Flight” article that inspired me to do a butterfly home decor roundup. I’ve always had an aversion to butterflies (I picture pastels), but these projects made me rethink my viewpoint. They are modern and pretty (like this butterfly wreath)! Click through the jump to see them, then let me know if you would have them in your home.
