Firefly Houses


I made these for my grandkids to catch fireflys. Up north fireflies are in abundance. this should be a safe place for them to observe them and set them free...

Firefly House

1 plastic container, I used a 16 oz. cappuccino mix container
Scrap pieces of plastic screen
Sticker paper
Modge Podge
Tacky Glue
Sharp scissors or craft knife.

Graphics used: Bed Bugs 2 by Tammy Sherman

1). Cut opening in front and lid of container. Cut plastic screen to fit openings..with tacky glue into place. Let dry thoroughly

2.) Choose graphics and size to fit on all sides and around opening in the front.…cut out and apply to front, sides and back of container..I put this poem on the back side….Firefly, Firefly come tonight,
Show me some cheer and pure delight,
Please come fly within my site.

3.) Embellish with glitter and things as desired.
