You can also make larger versions of these nets. They are great to fill with small snacks or gifts for children to open on a beach picnic
You will need wire, a short stick, twig, dowel or bamboo and net. You can use any kind of net depending on the look you want for your butterfly net- from bridal tulle to recycling vegetable packaging.
Cut the net and tie one side with a knot or a short section of wire
Bend the wire into a spiral. Thread the net onto the wire.
When you have a loop with both sides meeting cut the wire short and secure to the bamboo with pliers.
Wrap raffia, string or ribbon around the wire.
Decorate the net.
