I love it!! I have a leftover bottle just like that from a school project it wasn't right for. I think I'll have my DD give it a go

Very cute! I like his "nose." Your bug reminds me a lot of one I made. Great minds think alike!

Luna, actually you were the inspiration for the wings, we were looking at diffent bugs, and liked your wings thanks everyone for the kind words. I showed your comments to my GD, she was embarrassed but proud! Bev

Bev, I love your bottle bug! LOVE the colorfulness of it! My wife carol and I have made a few with spritzer bottles. Any hints as to how you keep the wings from moving around the bottle? LOVE your creation! Thanks for sharing! Bear Hugs! Kirk
