    First, prepare your jar. Wash and rinse with water, then dry both the inside and outside of the glass with a clean cloth. Make sure there’s no moisture on any part of the surface.

    Next, shape your Silly Putty into two shapes: bug wings and bug bodies. Press the bug bodies onto the sides of the jar, either inside or outside. Then, stick the wings to the left and right of each bug body.
