My friend, Summer, asked me to make a piñata for her daughter’s bug themed party. I asked her what kind of bug Ruby wanted and she said a beetle. I couldn’t decide if I should make a ladybug since it was for a girl’s 4th birthday party or a more realistic looking bug. When a little girl asks for a bug party, you know she can’t be the squeamish type so I decided to make a fighting stag beetle. To lighten it up, after spray painting it black, I sprayed glitter green on top to get that shiny bug look.
The birthday girl approved.
