BBQ Bottle Bug/BeeJune 20th, 2010 in member junk
My hubby is beginning to think I'll never throw anything away! ( He admitted this turned out better than he would have imagined, though) I painted the bottle to imitate mercury glass (doesn't really show up in the pics) and after attaching wire wings "sewed" window screen material on. My young assistant. aka 5-year-old grandson, poked a tiny hole in the screen material on one wing, so I covered it by attaching a few beads -- easier than re-doing the entire wing! I picked up a thingy at the hardware store meant to cover holes in metal (knock-out plug?) to cap the top of the bottle, and glued flat glass marbles on for the eyes. She (of course it's a girl!!) flies from a short shepard's hook in one of my flower beds.
