On the Garden Junk Forum we had a (Christmas in July) Summer Junk Gift Exchange. This is what I made for my person.
It was made from an old red flower vase. I drilled holes to attach the wings/antenna/hanger and feet. I glued the large half marbles on for eyes. I also used epoxy glue to hold the wings etc in place. I thought it turned out pretty cute.
Bottle bugs are just something fun to hang in the garden or on your patio etc.
You might remember a few weeks back I made the bug out of old used metal items.
This is the same idea just using a bottle instead.
The wings were from a Home Interiors wall hanging that I got at the Salvation Army. It was fun to make and I am happy to say it flew off to his new home and arrived in one piece!
You may be thinking but this is Friday...where are the bloomin' flowers?
Well its been terribly hot this week and things are just not doing so well. So no pictures this week. Hopefully next week there will be something to photograph! Do stop by and check out Tootsies blog for fabulous blooms on this Fertilizer Friday!
