DIY: Wood Veneer Butterflies

Remember Paul Villinski's Beer Can Butterflies? Some of you were over the whole butterfly trend, but this wood veneer version might make you reconsider. Veneer adds a warm wood tone to walls and can be cut into virtually any shape or pattern with scissors or an x-acto knife. Veneer's flexibility also lends itself to some interesting three-dimensional forms. It comes in hundreds of varieties, from the ordinary to the exotic. The butterflies pictured above were made from tree bark found outdoors, but you can obtain specific varieties at hardware stores for less than $40/roll.
