Our own Gossip girl butterfly wall decor


(Two of the pictures above in the collage are borrowed from google. The rest are obviously my own. :-)

After a long and almost heartaching crave for the butterfly wall decor I´ve seen in Serena´s room, we finally have our own self-made-cheaper-and-wannabe-alternative. We couldn´t be more happy! We see that we have to fill in several small butterflies around the “eye” as the original one, but otherwise, we are pretty content :-)!

      Hei! Beklager for tregt svar, jeg glemte å spørre Aksel da han kom igjen i går, også dro han på jobb i dag tidlig, så det blir et tregt svar fra min side, men et utfyllende svar kommer snart!! :)

        Vi betalte ca 400 NOK ved å bestille fra aliexpress.com. Vi har bestilt i 3 ulike str. Den minste er på 5cm (bestilte 2 pakker med 50stk i hver pakke). Den mellomste er på 7,5cm (bestilte 2 pakker med 20stk i hver pakke). Den største husker han ikke lengden på, og den venter vi fortsatt på. Av den bestilte vi 2 pakker med 12stk i hver pakke). Vi bestilte selvsagt disse hver for seg slik at ingen ble totalt over 200kr, på denne måten slipper du toll. Det var også gratis frakt. En veldig billig løsning, synes jeg:-)!

        På veggen har vi brukt alle av de mellomste, og nesten alle av de minste, og ser at mengden var perfekt. Når vi får de største, skal vi bytte ut noen av de minste med den for å få enda litt mer variasjon.

      Hey!:)
      I used around 200kr by ordering from aliexpress.com. I ordered 3 different sizes (but we only used 2 of these sizes).
      The smallest size is at 5cm (ordered 2 packages with 50 pieces in each package). The medium size is at 7,5cm (ordered 2 packages with 20 pieces in each package). We didn´t use the largest butterfly size. We also ordered two times so that non of the orders exceeded 200kr; that way you don´t need to pay for customs. It was also free shipping on that internet site so this was a rather cheap solution than ordering the real deal from the US :-) W´re very satisfied with the wall :D

      Thank you for a lovely comment, Camila :)

      Of course I´ll share! I used around 200 norwegian kroners (NOK) by ordering from aliexpress.com. I ordered 3 different sizes (but we only used 2 of these sizes).
      The smallest size is at 5cm (ordered 2 packages with 50 pieces in each package). The medium size is at 7,5cm (ordered 2 packages with 20 pieces in each package).
