Watching Home & Family one day, we saw this amazing large butterfly wings made of pvc pipe, zip ties, and duct tape. Butterflies love to fly around flowers, so I thought it was fitting to have this made for the local Annual Lavender Festival. All of the materials to complete this project except for the fabric is available at Lemhi Lumber.

We had such fun with the butterfly wings set up at the local Lavender Festival. This year the Lavender Festival started by Shannon Weaver of The Kitchen was hosted at Wagonhammer RV Park & Campground in North Fork, Idaho. There was a great turn out. Guests had a great time photographing themselves in front of the Butterfly wings decorated with purple and turquoise fabric.
