Mike, one of SmartyPlants talented and creative designers, built this wonderful butterfly.  The ingredients are:

Mossed dragonfly frame
Variegated Portulacaria
Red Cryptanthus
Several varieties of tillandsias (Stricta hard, Stricta soft, Filifolia, Ionatha, and others)
The eyes – 2 halves of one Ionatha Mexican tillandsias ball
A lot of time (4 ½ hrs.) and patience

The piece needs to lay flat for 2-3 weeks to give the plants an opportunity to root, after which it can be hung.  Its ideal home is outdoors in a shady spot and under roof to protect it from too much rain.  It should live happily for a long time with only occasional watering.
