Bugs are not awesome. But I can totally tolerate these fabric bugs. These bugs are even kind of cute. I like to imagine that if one of these bugs bit you, you would end up with a cute little heart-shaped scar and be filled with happiness venom.
- cute fabric(with a small print or pattern)
- Styrofoam Craft Balls and Styrofoam piecesto help form the bugs head and body parts
- Mod Podge
- Craft Wire
- Hot Glue
I wanted my bugs to look all different so I did not make them all the same way. I used a combination of stuffing and styrofoam pieces to make the body shapes that I covered with fabric. Another way I made the bodies was to create a small pillow-type pocket with the fabric before stuffing it. This was no-sew and I just used hot glue in place of stitching. I Mod Podged the styrofoam balls with fabric to create the heads. And used pieces cut from the wire to create the simple legs. I just love a good non-scary Halloween decoration, don’t you? I love that I can set these around my house and have pops of color and creep without being something bloody or gory. You should totally make this fabric bug Halloween craft this year!
