Mixed Media Butterfly Tablescape

Turn your table into a dense, magical forest. Create a Mixed Media Butterfly Tablescape from Tiffany Windsor using moss, stamps and more. Paint also helps turn mini canvases into beautiful backdrops. Home decor crafts can really change the look of your space.

Mixed Media Butterfly Tablescape


  • Aleene’s Turbo Tacky Glue
  • Tulip Fabric Soft Paint – white plus colors of your choice
  • Brush – 1/2″ shader
  • Canvases (sizes of your choice)
  • Pencil with eraser
  • Wet wipe
  • Sheet moss – green
  • Butterflies
  • Optional: easel, favor box, rubber stamp, cosmetic sponge, rock


  1. To create the butterfly canvas, paint a mini canvas desired color. Let dry. Dip pencil eraser into white paint and dot around edge of canvas. Be sure to create a generous dot. After about 1 hour, use a wet wipe to remove any paint that has not dried. Because you applied a thick dot, the paint in the center should still be wet and will easily wipe away to reveal a circle within a circle design. Let dry.

  5. For the favor box, keep box flat. I applied white acrylic paint to my rubber stamp with cosmetic sponge (in a dabbing motion) and stamped onto the box.
