You can use the butterflies to decorate a spring bush, for example. Just collect a few fallen branches in the forest, put them in a vase and decorate them with butterflies, flowers and leaves made of paper. A beautiful spring bouquet is ready! The handicrafts are a lot of fun and you can enjoy this self-made spring decoration for a long time.
