Build Your Own Butterfly Cage
Its super simple… except if your standing on a windy hill.
You will need:
2 small paper plates
1 square meter of bridal veil
2 strings of equal length
A glue gun
Lay the fabric flat. Fold one side halfway across. Bring the other side over so that you have a rectangle.
Place one string almost at the top of the rectangle. Gather the end and tie the string with a knot.
Do the same at the bottom.
Find the opening and put one paper plate to each end. You might will need a glue gun to secure those suckers in place.
Put that stick in, or maybe a small butterfly friendly plant (use aluminum pie plates if that’s the case) and close up the door.
When your caterpillar forms a chrysalis, you will pin the paper to the mesh and wait for it to hatch.

We purchased our caterpillars from Lucy’s Butterfly farm
