Jar Lid Glitter Bugs


  • Recycled jar lids
  • White acrylic craft paint
  • Glitter paint
  • Googly eyes
  • Glittery pipe cleaners
  • Hot glue gun


  • Paint the lids with two coats of white paint, allowing the paint to dry between coats.
  • Paint each lid with a generous amount of glitter paint.
  • While paint is still wet, position two goggly eyes on each lid. Allow paint to dry completely.
  • Cut pipe cleaners into thirds. Turn lids over and hot glue pipe cleaners to the inside of the lid for the legs. You can bend them so that the legs are straight out to the sides or erect.
