Let's Get Started

To reduce the risk of injury user must read instruction manuals for all tools used in this project. Wear eye and respiratory protection. Use clamps to support work piece whenever practical.

STEP 1

Bugz and how to make them

Drill 1/16" holes on the clothes pin for the legs and antennae. Use the same bit to drill through a pony bead for the eyes, you will need two of them. Bailing wire is fed through the holes and fashioned into legs. Wire is also used to make the antennae. The beads are to be slid down the wire into place for the eyes. Crazy glue is used to fasten the beads to the wire. Paint the bug to taste and super glue "googly eyes" to the beads once paint is dry. Have fun a be creative. :)
