While working on last week’s rustic twig and wire bowl craft project, I had the idea of creating decorative ‘bugs’ to enhance your fruit bowl. Originally, I wanted to make them from the left-over twigs, but in the end opted for pencils (to be precise 2 pencils) and a handful of paper-clips. And although primarily designed for the fruit bowl, these bugs would also make great table decorations, especially for Halloween parties (although, I guess, I’m missing the spider).
I’ve included a detailed tutorial on how to make your own bugs below. Have fun and if you have any questions just leave me a comment.
Please note: I was asked about the glue I used. Well, I used a two-part epoxy adhesive called ‘Araldite’. It comes with two tubes, you mix equal amounts, and when it dries it is very strong – the other good thing, is that it’s ‘thick’ and it can be dabbed between the segments to create a thick seal/spacer.

I thought I’d stick with the pencil theme and bring your attention to the amazing pencil tip sculptures of Dalton Ghetti.
