A short while ago I found out about the Paul Villinski art, somewhere on the net.
Anyway I knew I had to have something like it. I originally was thinking of making it like he odes and attaching it to the wall, but 1) I don't have space on my walls, & 2) my parents would never allow me to. So i did the next best thing, I hung them around my bedroom light. Here's a Pic:

They don't hang all level and properly, but I still like it, and am trying to figure out another way to hang them.

And instead of starting another post I thought I'd just add this here too, I love hanging things, and I made this a little while ago too.


Let me know what you think.

I love those butterflies.  Just the idea of having them "fluttering" overhead.  They are stunning.  Beautiful!!!

Looks great! Thanks for mentioning this artist.  I looked up his work after reading your post.  You were very creative to think of hanging them, too.

That looks great! Smiley   I'm a fan of his too.  I like the colorful hanging piece as well.

I used to have black construction paper butterflies all around the walls of my studio but they got kind of wilted & floppy looking with all the humidity we have here.

What did you make yours out of?

Thanks for all the nice comments.

They're made out of soda cans. Spray painted a nice mat black and then hung up.

I really like them! I'm trying to make a mobile myself, but I'm having string issues. What kind of string did you use?

Wow, I had never heard of that guy before, I just checked him out, his stuff rocks. And I absolutely love your butterfly mobile! I think I will have to use it as inspiration for a mobile when my baby is born!
