Craft – Bottle Cap Bugs

Have a few empty plastic bottles clogging up the recycling? Rather than take them to the curb, wash the plastic bottles and caps out and upcycle them into these adorable little critters:

What You Need:

  • Bottle Caps (bottle caps from milk jugs and juice work well as they usually come in blue, green and orange)
  • Transparency Paper
  • Sharpie Markers
  • Scissors
  • Hot Glue and Hot Glue Gun
  • Googly Eyes


1. Cut the transparency paper into wings.
2. Colour in the wings using a different coloured Sharpie markers.
3. Use the hot glue gun to glue the wings onto the bottle cap.
4. Add the googly eyes to the front of the bottle cap.
