Outdoor Butterfly Mobile

Pam from Gingerbread Snowflake took some old soda cans and transformed them into this:

With a little more time you could even make the butterflies look like this:

My neighbor has a cute airplane hanging from his tree made of Sprit cans.  Now I want to try to make an airplane mobile.

You seriously must be reading my mind. I've been thinking about doing paper butterflies to put around the house.

I wonder if they make a tinkling sound when they hit together...

I definitely like the punched butterfly idea.

I wonder--these might be fun to make out of 2-liter bottles, and use "stained glass" paint to pretty them up.

What a happy surprise to find this post and link! Thank you so much for sharing my butterflies with your readers!

Kim, once the can is cut up, the butterflies themselves are not sharp or scary to handle. And yes, they do make a tinkling sound in the wind. Not as pretty as a chime, but a nice little sound.
