Art Project: Bottle Cap Buggies



A couple years ago, I bought a pack of Bottle Caps. I used them to make a few necklaces, and a hair bow for Hannah.

The bow has an H sticker in the middle of the bottlecap.

I recently spotted something in passing on Pinterest that inspired me to get the bottlecaps out again.


A little paint, some added creative touches...


I gave the kids free reign on this one, and Brianna pulled out the rhinestones and pipe cleaners.


Eli's bee has tissue wings and a toothpick stinger.


My bee and ladybug are about to get eaten by Breezy's very scary spider.


Yikes!

I'm planning to dig up some magnets so we can put the bugs on the fridge.
