First spray the wooden plaques black with the spray paint. You may need to add multiple coats to ensure the plaque is completely covered. We chose black for this particular one but feel free to mix up the colors to make this hot glue gun craft your very own.

Next pick your favorite bugs of the bunch and spray paint them gold. Make sure to spray paint them on multiple angles so when you hang your completed project on the wall the entire bug is completely painted.

We chose our  Surebonder DT-200F hot glue for this project. This model has a dual temperature switch so it is ideal for crafts involving multiple materials. Since we are working with wood and plastic, we used the high temperature and put a good amount of hot glue on the belly of the bug. Then place the bug on the middle of your plaque and firmly press down.
