Makin Crafts: Spring Bugs

SpRiNg BuGs 
Here are some cute little spring decorations you can make that are fast and easy!

I found the idea in a magazine. I'm sorry I can't remember which one, since I made these a couple of years ago. But I still use them and put them out every spring since they are so cute! 

All you need is:
-3 smallish clay pots
(for a bee, a butterfly or dragonfly and a ladybug)
-Acrylic paint
(red, blue or purple, yellow and pink)
-Black permanent marker
-Foamy sheets
(sorry I don't know the real name for them, but you'll need to get black, white, blue or purple and pink)
-Bendable wire
-Craft glue and Hot glue
-And obviously scissors and paint brushes 

Then you all you do is:
1.Paint the pots how you want them.
2.Allow them to dry.
3.Put the markings you want on them with the marker.
4. Twist up the wire for antennas and glue them on where you want them.
5. Cut out of the foamy sheets some wings and mark those how you want them.
6. Then glue on the wings and you're done!

So cute and perfect for lighting up small spaces with a pop of color! Plus they're great for holding your favorite Easter candies!
