Bugs-n-Blooms's Butterfly Life
Keep track of your child's growth and add stylish decoration to a room with Bugs-n-Blooms' growth chart wall decals. We offer 8 different styles of growth charts that complement our other decorations and look great in a child's bedroom or playroom.
Each growth chart decal comes as a set of three stickers and the actual size, when assembled, is 8-1/4 inches wide by 38 inches high. The charts measure children from 2 to 5 feet tall. You can use a marker or pen to write on the vinyl sticker to keep a record of how fast your child is growing.
The butterfly, flower and ladybug wall chart style is covered with pink insects and scrollwork trim on either a light pink or a pale green background. If you want to use matching decorations throughout the room, the pictures on these charts match our triple-layer butterfly, Hailey flower and Hailey ladybug hanging decorations.
The butterfly garden and picket fence growth charts both have blue backgrounds and a white border. The butterfly garden chart matches our hanging twinkle butterfly decorations, and the picket fence design matches the multi-layer dragonfly and flower decorations. Similarly, the white and red ladybug growth chart matches our glitter hanging ladybugs.
For rooms that don't use a nature-based decorating theme, we offer three wall charts that don't feature our signature bugs or blooms. The sports-theme growth chart has images of a basketball baseball, football and soccer ball on a gray background. For a girl who enjoys dancing, we offer a pink and purple ballet-theme growth chart. Our newest nautical-theme growth chart is great for gender-neutral decorating.
Growth Chart Hanging Tips
Picking a hanging location is the first step in placing your growth chart. You want to choose a wall with a smooth surface in a location where it will be easy for you and your child to stand and measure their height without furniture or doors getting in the way. Once you've chosen a place to hang the stickers, wipe the wall down with a soft, damp cloth (just water – no cleaning agents) and let it dry for 2 to 4 hours.
Make a small mark on the wall 23 inches up from the floor. Our wall decals start counting at 24 inches, with a 1-inch border on the bottom. Hanging them 23 inches up from the floor ensures they'll accurately measure your child's height. Carefully peel the first sticker off the sheet, and line the bottom edge up with the mark. Smooth the sticker from top to bottom, then press firmly once you have it in the right spot. Repeat with the middle and top stickers until the growth chart is fully assembled.
With the weather warming up for spring, more and more parties and events are moving outside. Birthdays, graduations, weddings – all these events are often held out of doors in good weather, and it's nice to have decorations that you don't have to worry about being torn apart in a little breeze.
Bugs-n-Blooms decorations are designed for indoor use, but they also make a nice temporary addition to outdoor decorations for a party. As long as it's not pouring rain or extremely windy, our nylon and wire decorations hold up well in outdoor conditions. If you need any extra supplies to keep them in place, add some of our hanging hoops or adhesive tabs to your order.
Our hanging decorations have wire frame wings for the insects and petals for the flowers covered with nylon fabric. We offer butterflies, dragonflies, flowers, bees and ladybugs, and there's something for everyone in terms of color and style. Pink, purple, green, blue, yellow, orange, red, brown, gray, white and black colors are available in a wide variety of shapes and sizes.
We offer 12 different mini decorations that range in size from 1 to 4 inches. They work well as embellishments for other decorations, such as part of a floral arrangement or wired onto a basket used to hold cards. Most of our hanging decorations come in small and medium sizes, which fall between 5 and 10 inches wide. These are good all-purpose decorations for attaching to serving tables, walls, ceilings and garden décor. Large and extra-large designs, up to 24 inches wide, are great for drawing attention or filling a large area.
Outdoors, curtain tie-backs can serve their intended purpose by holding back fabric walls of a tent. They're also useful for a variety of other decorating tasks. Since they come with wires or ribbon to tie them on to things, it is easy to secure curtain tie-backs to chairs, tent poles, and table legs.
All our curtain tiebacks feature a size small decorations between 5 and 7 inches wide. The styles and colors match our hanging decorations, so you can keep the theme consistent. They are hung with two lengths of either wire or ribbon. Each style has ribbon streamers hanging from the decoration as well.
Mobiles don't have to stay in the nursery. They look lovely hanging outdoors and moving in a gentle breeze. Each mobile is 24 inches long, so make sure you hang it where people won't bump their heads against it. The corners of a porch or the center of a tall tent work perfectly.
We have 23 different styles of mobile, and each comes in several different colors. They all have five decorations hanging from the mobile. Some feature decorations that are all the same color, others have decorations that are the same style with five different colors. Some combine complementary butterfly, dragonfly, flower, bee and ladybug decorations. All match the styles and colors of tie-backs and hanging decorations.
Bugs-n-Blooms newest wall stickers give you an easy to use, and non-permanent, way to add a nautical flare to your room decorating. Nautical themes work well throughout the home. A good color pallet for this theme is blue and gray tones with hints of red as an accent color, and all of Bugs-n-Blooms nautical wall stickers complement this color scheme.
A nautical theme makes for an adorable gender-neutral nursery, and when you've decided on the baby's name you can use our vinyl wall letter decals to personalize the room. Each of the nautical wall-letters measures 6-1/2 inches diameter. The stickers are red, white, light blue, navy blue and gray colors, which matches most colors you'd be using in a nautical theme room.
Keep track of how much your child is growing as they get older using a nautical growth chart. Like our other growth charts, this one comes in three sticker sections that attach to the wall. Starting at 2 feet up from the floor, place the stickers one on top the other. It will measure your child's height up to 5 feet tall.
Nautical Living Spaces
Nautical room ideas work well for living rooms, studies, guest rooms and eating areas. It's a popular theme, and finding nautical décor elements is relatively easy. This theme also lends itself well to DIY projects, like customized lampshades and handmade pillows. Antique shops, Etsy stores, and local decorating shops are great places to start looking for decorations to go with your Bugs-n-Blooms stickers.
Our 6-piece nautical decals set is a simple way to add a nautical accent on the walls. This set includes 2 sailboats, a lighthouse, a life preserver, a red anchor and a blue whale. Bugs-n-Blooms vinyl stickers don't stick well to textured or high-gloss surfaces, but that still leaves a wide variety of surfaces you can experiment with. For walls, they will stick to drywall painted with flat, satin or eggshell paints. If you're looking for a more unusual surface, they also stick to glass, metal and sanded wood without lacquer.
Beach and nautical themes are popular for bathrooms. You have to be careful using Bugs-n-Blooms stickers in these rooms, however, because they don't stick well in hot or humid locations. Make sure the bathroom is well-ventilated before installing wall stickers to avoid having them peel off the walls.
In a well-ventilated bathroom, our nautical decals make adorable wall accents. The “Row row row your boat” quote sticker looks good attached directly to the wall, or on a piece of wood or glass used to frame the quote. You could also place it behind glass in a frame to protect the decal from humidity.
Mothers are among the most important people in our lives, and they deserve a special day. This year, why not plan a party for your mother and invite her closest friends and relatives? Whether it's a simple breakfast get-together or a full family reunion, a Mother's Day party is the perfect time to gather with family. And if your mother would rather relax than party, you can still make the day special by serving her breakfast in bed and planning something for just the two of you.
If you want to keep the afternoon clear for other plans, inviting people to a family breakfast is a great way to celebrate Mother's Day. Check out Foodnetwork's list of Mother's Day breakfast and brunch recipes for some ideas of what to serve. Chocolate waffles, cinnamon rolls, blueberry pancakes, cheese frittatas, and quiches are all good choices.
For table decorations, Bugs-n-Blooms' hanging flowers look lovely set on the table. The hanging hoops and lines are easy to remove, and then the small, medium and large size flowers make great centerpieces. The tiniest flowers, like mini crystal and mini daisy flowers, work well attached to ribbons and tied around napkins, or wired to baskets used for serving bread.
Mother's Day can also be a good time for planning family reunions. Send invitations early, to make sure you reach people before they have other Mother's Day plans. Whether you're planning a larger gathering over the weekend or a one-day get-together for close family, you can make it work well as a Mother's Day party. Bugs-n-Blooms' hanging nylon decorations can be used for indoor or outdoor gatherings, as long as it's not too windy or raining.
Choosing a theme that has something to do with your family history is a great idea to guide your decorating. It might be a theme that matches the decade your mother was growing up, or a theme inspired by a certain location that means something to your family. Flowers and butterflies make a great addition to any of these themes, and the smaller decorations are a great accent for family photo displays. Another decorating idea is to use wall-letters on a clean, dry surface to spell out the words “Mother's Day” or your family name.
If your mother would rather have a day to herself or spend it just with her kids, starting the day out with breakfast in bed for your mom or a small brunch for the family is a nice way to make the day special. Plan ahead and make it easy so you can spend more time with your mom than in the kitchen.
Make this special time with your mom even more special with a few decorations on the serving tray of the breakfast table. If you're on a budget, check out our “sales” section for some great deals on beautiful flowers, butterflies and dragonflies in a variety of styles and sizes.
Vinyl stickers and decals from Bugs-n-Blooms are a simple way to transform a room. They are also removable, which makes them a great solution for renters who can't make permanent changes to the walls or for homeowners who don't want to make big alterations.
These decals are easy to apply, and they reliably stick to smooth clean surfaces, including painted drywall (flat, satin and egg-shell finishes), glass, metal and sanded wood (without lacquer). This makes them a great choice for use on walls, doors, furniture, mirrors and windows – basically any smooth, dry surface that needs decoration.
Our newest sticker style is a nautical theme. Each sheet has six stickers: a light house, anchor, life preserver, whale and two sailboats. All of the stickers have a red, white, gray and blue color scheme. They match the new nautical alphabet stickers, and work well for a little boy's bedroom, or another nautical room. If you want to use them in a bathroom, however, make sure the room is well-ventilated. Vinyl stickers don't adhere well in humid locations.
When you're getting started with our garden mural stickers, Bugs-n-Blooms offers a package of stems and leaves with flower, ladybug and butterfly stickers to turn your wall into a garden. They look really cute growing out of the baseboard in a child's bedroom or playroom.
We also offer smaller sheets of butterflies, flowers, ladybugs and clouds for customizing your own mural. These stickers make a great addition to painted murals, like adding dragonfly stickers to a pond scene or butterflies to a painted tree.
The wall scrolls stickers work perfectly for framing other design elements. If you spell out a child's name on the wall with alphabet stickers, the scrolls look nice under the letters. They also work well used as a frame around a mirror or door, or placed side-by-side as a boarder on the wall. Scroll stickers come in several different colors and five styles: flower, butterfly, ladybug, dragonfly and bumblebee.
The sports wall stickers are great for a child's bedroom if your son or daughter plays or watches a sport. The decals come in sheets with four ball-shaped stickers and the word “basketball,” “baseball,” “football” or “soccer.” The baseball, soccer ball, and basketball stickers each measure 4-1/2 inches diameter, and the football measures 5 inches by 3-1/2 inches.
We also carry varsity-style number stickers. Each number measures 7-3/4 inches tall, and they are all available individually so you get exactly which numbers you want without having sheets of leftover stickers.
Little girls love playing dress-up, and Bugs-n-Blooms offers a variety of costume pieces that they can use as a party outfit or for everyday imaginative play. Our wings, tutu skirts, fairy wands and hair bands are available as costume sets, or you can mix-and-match to make your own. Since these costumes all feature flower or insect designs in bright colors, they are perfect for spring wear.
Bugs-n-Blooms offers six distinct wing styles, with color variations for each design. Each wing is made of nylon fabric over a soft wire frame. They feature color-matched glitter and other accents, depending on the style, and work well for either bug or fairy costumes.
- The Gerbera Wings come in pink, green or purple designs with a white flower, and white wings with a pink flower. They measure 16 inches high by 20 inches wide.
- Swirls Wings are joined in the center by a jeweled heart. They come in pink, purple or green and measure 16 inches high by 17 inches wide.
- The Layered Wings are also joined by a heart and feature an extra layer of wing on each side. They come in pink or green and measure 12 inches high by 15 inches wide.
- Star Wings are covered in sparkling stars. The wings are joined by a feathered puff in the center, and come in purple or green. They measure 16 inches high by 17 inches wide.
- Princess wings come in three shades of pink and purple, with a rose flower in the center of the wings. They measure 17 inches high by 24 inches wide.
- Ladybug wings come in pink or red. They feature a color-matched flower in the center and measure 13 inches high by 14 inches wide.
Our tutu skirts are made of layers of polyester tulle. The waist circumferences stretch from 17 to 36 inches, and each skirt is 14 inches long. They are recommended for ages 2 to 10 years. Skirts layer well over leggings or dance leotards.
- Butterfly skirt has layers of pink, green, and purple tulle covered with tiny butterfly decorations. There is a purple bow decorating the waistband.
- Polka dot bow skirt layers light pink and dark pink tulle, or light purple and dark purple. The bows are color-matched polka dotted fabric.
- Gerbera flower skirt has a flower decoration on the waistband instead of a bow. It comes in two colors: pink with a white flower, or pink and purple with a pink flower.
- Zebra print skirt is hot pink with zebra print trim on the waist and hem. It features a black bow and pink flower on the waistband.
What fairy princess costume would be complete without a matching fairy wand? Bugs-n-Blooms' fairy wands come in three butterfly styles and one yellow bumblebee style. The butterfly wands match other decorations and wings and come in pink, dark pink, green and purple. Each wand has a 12-inch handle topped with a small butterfly or bee decoration measuring 5 inches by 4 inches.
Our soft crochet headbands are highly elastic, and each have a 4-inch flower decoration that matches the Gerbera wings and skirts. They come in a variety of colors and styles to match all the other costume elements. Some of the flowers feature jeweled centers or polka dot petals. There's also a zebra-print style to match the zebra skirt.
Walls aren't the only place you can use vinyl stickers. If you're in a crafting mood, there are several creative ways to use wall stickers around the house in other projects. They will stick to a wide variety of surfaces, which makes them very versatile in crafting.
What Will They Stick To?
The recommended surfaces for Bugs-n-Blooms vinyl stickers are drywall painted with flat, satin or egg-shell paints, glass, metal, and sanded wood without lacquer. They will not reliably stick to textured surfaces, high-gloss paints, unpainted drywall, brick or cinder blocks, porous-texture paneling, or fresh paint.
Even with the restrictions about textured or high-gloss surfaces, vinyl decals are quite versatile. I've seen craft projects that use vinyl stickers on everything from a metal Kitchen Aid mixer to glass in picture frames. Many of these crafts use custom vinyl cut-outs, but they will also work with Bugs-n-Blooms vinyl decals.
Be creative when working with vinyl decals, and don't be afraid to try them out on different surfaces. Bugs-n-Blooms decals are not designed for outdoor use, but indoors you can let your imagination run wild. Here are a few ideas to get you started.
- Use the sports number stickers on the glass of a photo frame with a picture of your child in their uniform. If you use a large frame with a wide mat around the photo, there will be plenty of room for the number as well as the picture.
- Place the decals on wooden boxes to personalize a storage container with someone's initials or simply dress-up a plain box.
- Create a unique wall hanging by covering frame backings with colored fabric or paper, then placing a decal on the glass. It will look like the decal is hovering over the colored background. This would work well for framing quote stickers or a name spelled out with wall letters.
- Place mural stickers along the edges of a mirror. This works best for mirrors in rooms other than the bathroom, which often gets too warm and humid for the stickers to reliably adhere to the glass surface.
- Stick a vinyl alphabet letter on a decorative dish for a personalized gift. Just remember the finished dish is not washable and is for decorative purposes only.
To help make sure vinyl decals stick where you want them, clean and dry the surface before you place the stickers. Use a warm, damp cloth to wipe down the surface and let it dry for 2 to 4 hours before applying the decals. Wet the cloth with plain water, since soap and other cleaning agents can affect how well the decals stick. If you're applying decals to a newly painted surface, wait 30 days for the paint to dry completely.
Carefully peal the stickers off the backing, being careful not to touch the sticky part of the decal. Lay the decal against the surface you're applying it to, and gently smooth from top to bottom. If it's not in the right place, re-position it now. Once the decal is where you want it, press the sticker firmly to eliminate any air bubbles. If you are placing the decals on wood or ceramic, you can spray a sealing spray over the finished craft project, but this is not required.
When you need a gift for an expectant mother, a friend decorating their new home, or a little girl with a birthday coming up, look no further than Bugs-n-Blooms. We offer a wide selection of hanging decoration that are perfect for decorating the home, as well as cute costume sets that little girls will love dressing up in. If you're not sure exactly what to buy, gift cards are always a nice option.
This is a great gift idea for a baby shower, Mother’s Day, housewarming or a child's birthday. Bugs-n-Blooms gift certificates are available in $25 increments. That is enough for the gift recipient to pick out several decorations, such as a set of curtain tie-backs and two hanging decorations or a mobile and several mini decorations.
The great thing about giving gift certificates is that the recipient can choose exactly what colors and styles they want. If you don't know what theme an expectant mother wants in her nursery, which decorations would fit best in someone's home, or that colors a child would prefer to decorate their room with, gift cards solve that problem.
If you want to get something specific as a baby shower gift, Bugs-n-Blooms hanging mobiles are a great option. Our mobiles each measure 11 inches wide by 24 inches high and are easily attached to a ceiling. Two butterfly styles come in a spiral design, with the decorations hanging from a hoop. The other 19 designs stagger the decorations on wire hangers so they turn and spin when touched.
Each mobile features five or six size small decorations in matching styles. Some are all the same color, such as the red ladybug and yellow bee styles. Other butterfly, dragonfly, and flower styles feature blue, green, pink, purple and yellow decorations. Mobiles also come in styles that use one each of the dragonfly, butterfly, flower, ladybug and bee decorations.
Another great gift idea for a little girl is a costume set from Bugs-n-Blooms. The sets range in price from $32.80 to $40.80, so a $25 gift certificate would only cover part of the cost. If you want to give a complete set as a gift, it is probably better to buy the costume rather than a gift card.
Each costume set includes butterfly wings, a tutu skirt, a headband and a fairy wand. All these items are also available separately, so you can mix-and-match to design the costume you want. Some of the tutu skirts and wings we offer are not available as part of a set, so buying the pieces separately gives you more options. In addition to the several butterfly or fairy wing styles, ladybug wings are also available.
There are so many pretty ideas to use when decorating for Easter that it's hard to know where to start. Decorative eggs are widely used, and you can make them uniquely your own with creative craft ideas. Fresh or artificial flowers are the perfect choice for an eye-catching centerpiece, and Bugs-n-Blooms decorations come in a wide range of spring colors suitable for Easter decorating.
Tutorials suggesting creative ways to dye Easter eggs are widely available online. These often include covering the eggs with patterns of tape before dying to create specific designs that show up when you peel the tape off, or adding embellishments like paper cut-outs or scrapbooking stickers to the finished eggs. If you stick glitter and sequins on Easter eggs, they'll match the glittering insect and flower decorations from Bugs-n-Blooms.
If you don't want to deal with messy dyes, there are several ways to decorate no-dye Easter eggs. Covering the eggs with thin strips of washi tape, wrapping eggs with multi-colored yarn, drawing on the shells with permanent markers, or using craft stickers are simple ways to customize an egg. You can also stick 3-D embellishments to the eggs, such as craft feathers or mini butterfly decorations. If you are decorating hard-boiled eggs that you plan to eat, make sure you use non-toxic adhesives and colors.
Fresh spring flowers are a beautiful addition to Easter decorations. Pots of blooming bulbs are readily available in stores, but it is also easy to force your own spring-flowering bulbs like hyacinth and daffodil. Paperwhites will bloom 3 to 5 weeks after planting and don't require chilling. Other bulbs like tulips, daffodils and hyacinths require 16 to 18 weeks of chilling before you plant them. Pre-chilled bulbs for forcing are available if you didn't plan ahead.
You can easily add Bugs-n-Bloom decorations to potted flowers using wood picks. These picks have two pieces of thin wire at the top which wrap around the nylon decorations so you can stick them into a flower pot. Another striking centerpiece idea is to take tall branches with an interesting shape – like manzanita or corkscrew willow – and place them in a vase. Then, attach small butterfly or flower decorations to the branches.
Bugs-n-Blooms decorations come in a wide variety of spring colors typically used in Easter decorating. Our butterflies, dragonflies, and flowers all feature shades of pink, purple, blue, green, yellow, and white that pair perfectly with Easter colors. Even the ladybugs and bees come in pink and purple.
These nylon decorations are very easy to hang using the included fishing line and hoop. If you need extra fishing line or a replacement hoop, that's available as well. Adhesive strips or glue dots also work well for hanging these decorations on walls. They are removable and won't damage most clean, dry surfaces like painted drywall, plaster, cardboard, wood, plastic, glass, and metal. If you're hanging decorations from the ceiling, use the fishing line and hoop instead of adhesives.
If you're looking to design a cute and comfortable bedroom for your little girl, Bugs-n-Blooms offers decorations to fit several different themes. One of the themes our decorations are exceptionally well suited for is a “Cute As A Bug” theme. Our adorable bug decorations truly are cute, and they are a great way to start decorating a room just for your little girl.
Perfect for a cute little girl in your life, ladybugs work well as the basis for several types of decorating schemes. Red ladybugs pair perfectly with a bold black and red or white and red color pallet, as well as with green tones. Bugs-n-Blooms also offers pink and purple ladybugs for a softer color scheme.
Our ladybug decorations are available in mini, small and medium sizes ranging from 2 to 8 inches wide. Hanging decorations, mobiles and curtain tie-backs come in three different styles. There are also two additional styles only available as a hanging decoration. Ladybug-theme wall stickers, including alphabet letters and a growth chart, are also available.
Bright yellow bumblebees can serve much the same purpose in a decorating theme as ladybugs. Like red ladybugs, bumblebees work well for in clean design that uses white or black with one accent color. They also pair well with green tones and outdoorsy themes. Bee decorations are available in yellow, pink and purple. These decorations range in size from 2-inch minis to 10-inch medium bees.
Butterfly decorations are available with the widest range of options in any of the bug decorations offered by Bugs-n-Blooms. There are a total of 8 different sizes available, from the 1-inch super mini to the 18-by-11-inch extra large size. Hanging decorations come in fifteen different styles, plus four more mini styles. Most of these are also available in up to 9 different colors.
Butterfly-themed girls rooms can use just about any color you like, making butterfly decorations very versatile for a “Cute As A Bug” theme room. Since butterflies are so popular, there's also a wide range of butterfly wallpapers, bedspreads and other decorations available for using alongside Bugs-n-Blooms' hanging decorations and wall stickers.
Sizing and styles for dragonfly decorations is similar to butterflies. There are seven sizes available, from 2-inch minis to 18-inch extra large sizes. The ten different styles, plus two mini styles, also come in a wide range of colors. They are just as versatile as the butterfly decorations, and match particularly well with themes that incorporate water since dragonflies naturally live near water sources like ponds, rivers and swamps.
