What's with all the fairies?
The Butterfly Grove is where little fairies live. The fairies work at night to create whimsical designs to inspire wonder. They live in a world that exists right between wake and sleep of children and babies. Chris, who works with children every day, has managed to enter their world where the fairies welcome her with love.
How are items sized?
The items are sized by their longest dimension. For butterflies, dragonflies and bees, this would be from wingtip to wingtip. For ladybugs, this would be from antennae to bottom of wings. For flowers, this would be the flower diameter. Because items are hand made, there may be slight variations in size and therefore sizes are approximations.

How do you clean the nylon decorations?
Items may be gently spot cleaned with a damp cloth. If needed, you may spot clean with a mild detergent. Please clean with care as with any nylon item there is the possibility of creating runs.
How do you hang the butterflies, dragonflies, ladybugs, bees, and flowers?
When you first get your butterfly, you should spread out its wings to give it life and then hang them on the wall or ceiling.
The butterflies can be hung in several ways. You can use the string with the hoop onto a hook, or you can remove the hoop and tie the string to a thumb tack or brad. You can also completely remove the string and tack directly to the wall with a tack, sticky wax, or brad (to remove string, pull on the free end first to enlarge the loop as to not cut the nylon). We do not recommend using thumb tacks in rooms with young children.
If you are hanging the butterflies from the ceiling, you may want to add some dimensions to the flight. You can add a third string and tie to the back end of the body to give the flight various angles. You can also add length to the string to add various height to the butterfly's flight.

Which items are meant for the wall and which are meant for the ceiling?
All our items are suitable for hanging from the wall or ceiling (with the exception of mobiles, which are best suited for the ceiling). However, some are better suited than others for these purposes.
All our items that are 5" and larger have a hanging hoop and line to hang from the ceiling. If the items are not prestrung, it is easy for you to add a fishing line and hang from the ceiling.
You can use any size for the wall, either from the hoop, or remove the hoop directly to the wall. Most 2" and 3" items do not come prestrung.
Generally, we recommend using 11" and up for hanging from the ceilings. For walls, we recommend 13" and below.
Is it possible to add a wire into the back of the butterfly?
Yes, it is possible to easily slide a wire into the back of the butterfly. For detailed instructions with photos on how to add a wire, please click here.
