Bright Garden Buggies

Apr 21, 2021 11:36 PM

While searching the ideas how to make my garden cuter and funnier, I have found one nice diy. It`s not also recycling because we`re going to use old golf or ping-pong balls,but it`s also a great opportunity to enjoy the time with your kids painting these balls. We`ll make funny garden buggies! Sa grab the brightest paints you have and let`s start.

Things you need:

  • Golf balls 
  • 20 gauge galvanized steel wire (for legs and antennae) 
  • Metal nuts and washers (as in, the nuts that fit on bolts) for noses and eyes 
    The bird beak/bill is a metal screw.
  • Primer and acrylic craft paints 
    I used white wall primer  plus Martha Stewart craft paints 
  • Paint brushes 
  • Sharpie markers (
  • Adhesive (Goop or E6000 or crazy glue) 
  • Wire cutters
  • Needle nose pliers
  • Electric drill and 3/64 drill bit 
  • Safety glasses 
  • Images of the bugs or critters you want to make
