Butterfly Shadow Box Art

While looking for affordable accessories for her master bedroom update, Steph from Building This Nest came across a colorful butterfly shadow box from IKEA. At $14.99, it was hardly expensive, but Steph knew it would be simple enough to recreate without a trip to the big blue store. Steph used an Xacto knife to cut out her butterflies, drizzled them with craft paint, and then popped them into a shadow box. I think this would make absolutely darling wall décor for a little girl’s room too!

The original inspiration came from IKEA’s Olunda Picture.
