Cedar Butterfly House – Red Butterfly Design


These handcrafted Butterfly Houses are a unique, simple way to support your backyard habitat while adding a bit of fun! Handcrafted from cedar planks, the Butterfly House, also known as a Hibernating Box, is a safe space where butterflies can hibernate away from the weather during the winter and roost during the summer. Whereas most Butterfly Houses have simple cutouts as the entry point for the butterflies, these houses have butterfly shaped cutouts with rods inside, providing an understated functional conversation piece to your backyard habitat! When you receive it, add small sticks and branches to the inside of the Butterfly house. This gives the butterflies something to hang on to inside of the house. The house comes with a hook attached for ease of hanging on a post, fence, or tree!


This Butterfly House should be placed in a woody section of your backyard where the butterfly will feel most comfortable. Plants such as elm and willow trees, or nettles and hops, are the favorite plants of your would-be tenants, so placing them near those would be ideal! Placing it near nectar sources will also make your guests most likely to visit and stay! The ideal placement is a few feet off of the ground. Place a few sticks, twigs, bark pieces or other textured items from your yard or the area you place the House. This will give perches to the butterflies for rest or hibernation. Some say that putting an old piece of banana or fruit inside will lure some butterflies inside!

This item was handcrafted by my father, a retiree in Reno, NV, who honed his skills by creating amazing gifts for family and friends during the lockdowns of 2020. Having multiple health issues, paired with a global pandemic, kept him from spending his retirement as he planned. Never being one to sit still he spent his time in his small woodshop creating over 100 bird feeders, bird houses, whirligigs, and custom holiday items, all of which he gifted to family, friends, and neighbors. Seeing the happiness his work brought others, he worked with a local women's shelter and created over 30 handcrafted wood toys, which were donated to bring a smile to the children's faces who were staying. He is now sharing his talent and unique abilities with the world through Four Seasons Handmade Woodcrafts!
