Easy-to-Make Scarab Beetles

Every high-quality Halloween display requires a few creepy crawlies. Marshal a parade of scarab beetles -- Egyptian symbols of immortality -- across a crypt.

What You Need for 2 beetles

  • Plastic-foam egg in the desired size
  • Serrated knife
  • Crafts knife
  • Black acrylic crafts paint
  • Paintbrush
  • Glossy decoupage medium
  • Brown dimensional slick paint
  • Black chenille stems
  • Scissors
  • Glue gun and hotmelt adhesive

How to Make It

  1. Cut the plastic-foam egg in half lengthwise with a serrated knife. Using a crafts knife, cut a V-shaped wedge out of each side near the small end of each egg half, forming the beetles' necks.
  2. Paint the beetles with black acrylic paint; let dry. Then paint the beetles with two or three coats of gloss decoupage medium, allowing it to dry between coats. Squeeze thin lines of brown slick paint to distinguish the head from the body and the wings.
  3. For legs, cut six pieces of chenille stem for each beetle. Cut two short chenille stem lengths for antennae. Push one end of each leg into the underside of each beetle's body and bend outward. Drop a bit of glue on each leg where it joins the body. After the glue has dried, bend the legs, referring to the photos.
  4. Insert antennae into the front of each head and bend as desired.
