What is more beautiful than a butterfly?
While it is hard to answer that, we know that there are few things as beautiful as butterfly wreaths!
You may be on the hunt for a butterfly wreath to hang on your front door. They carry deep symbolism and beautiful meaning to this unique animal that goes through several types of life cycles before becoming the butterfly that most of us know them to be.
So what type of butterfly wreath should we have on our front door? Should we have a wreath with a butterfly or a butterfly-shaped wreath?
We are here to provide you with as many butterfly wreath ideas as possible, as well as any other information you need to know about butterfly wreaths.
What do butterflies symbolize?
Butterflies can represent a lot in life, depending on where in the world people are talking about butterfly symbolism and cultural norms.
Because of the life experience of a butterfly, going from a chrysalis to a beautiful butterfly, butterflies can be seen as a symbol for rebirth and resurrection.
Also, since the lifespan of a butterfly is short, many connect butterflies with spiritual transformation and transitioning from one world to beyond.
According to Gardens With Wings, “Some believe butterflies are winged messengers from the spirit world to the physical realm and send signals and validations to help guide us through life. It is suggested that you pay attention and listen through your intuition, thoughts, feelings, and senses to receive the message from angels that butterflies help signals are present.”
What are some great times to hang my butterfly wreath up?
Butterflies start to come out of their cocoons in early March, a few weeks before spring begins. Because that is when butterflies are released into the world again, many people associate butterflies with spring.
If you associate butterflies with the beginning of spring, early March would be a good time to hang your butterfly wreath.
Others choose to switch to their butterfly wreath once they have taken down their Easter door decorations.
To be honest, though, butterflies are so lovely and loved by enough people that you are more likely than not able to get away with having a butterfly wreath any time of year!
