  • Cut your tissue paper into strips and brush a layer of Mod Podge onto the center of your bottle.
  • Put the tissue paper strips onto the Mod Podge, wrapping it around the bottle. Brush on another layer of Mod Podge.
  • Once it’s dry, wrap three pipe cleaners around the bottle and twist to form legs.
  • Cut 2 wings out of the foam and glue it to the top.
  • Place your glow stick inside the bottle.
  • Attach your googly eyes to the cap and twist another pipe cleaner around the neck of the bottle to form the antenna.
