Butterfly Garden made from a wine bottle and kitchen tile

Butterflies drink from small recesses of water so I used the punt of an upside down wine bottle to give them a place to drink. To attract them, I put flowers in the bottle. My flowers are made of rolled up magazine paper (for the stem) and buttons and fabric for the flower part. Remember, the flower has to be stuffed through the neck of the wine bottle so don’t make it out of something too big or something that will get crushed.

Another thing butterflies like is a place to rest. A butterfly blog I read suggested a smooth stone. I didn’t have one of those so I used a left over kitchen tile that was sitting in my basement. I painted it and set it out next to my wine bottle.

I’m Cristin Frank (AKA Eve). I love all things frugal and crafty. My mindset is always on upcycling, repurposing, reducing waste and saving money – and Eve of Reduction is my roadmap. You might also want to check out my book, "Living Simple, Free & Happy."
