{diy} butterfly terrarium


let go back...waaaaay back in april where i created my first {diy}. do you remember it? if not here's the link

so, the other day i ransacked my craft closet {yes i have one...doesn't everyone?} and decided to create a simple and inexpensive centerpiece. 
what do you think? i know the photography isn't the greatest but i'm working on that.

you want to know the best part - each little butterfly terrarium cost less than $5 each. sweeeeet!!!

{materials}
hydrangeas {artificial or real} *i used real ones from my garden
clear vase
10" paper doily
mini wired butterflies
ribbon 

{directions}
{1.} cut the stem off just below the hydrangea head
{2.} carefully insert hydrangea inside the vase {depending on the size of your hydrangea, you might need to use two}
{3.} insert mini wired butterfly
{4.} place paper doily on top of the vase opening and tie ribbon around it. 
{5.} place it on your table and let your guests oh & ah about it
