How to Make

  1. Print out the template and cut the stripes out of black felt and the wings out of glitter felt.
  2. Take a clean plastic drinks bottle and fill it a quarter full of gold glitter glue.
  3. Take your yellow food colouring and put in 3-5 drops of colour.
  4. Fill the bottle up with warm tap water leaving about 2 cm at the top.
  5. Screw the lid on and shake, if you feel you need more glitter or food colouring add it now.
  6. Ask an adult to help you secure the lid by using a strong glue or screwing it on very tightly.
  7. Wrap your black felt strips around your bottle, starting with the face shaped one at the top. You can stick these on using double sided tape. Trim the excess.
  8. Add wiggle eyes to the face and draw a smile.
  9. Take a pipe cleaner and shape it as antennae around the top of the bottle.
  10. Finally stick on the wings.
