DIY Mesh Bug Box

Use pieces of plastic mesh to make a bug box! Cut six squares of mesh, cut out a rectangle from one piece of mesh for a door and cut a rectangle of mesh slightly larger than the door hole. Use a piece of yarn to sew one side of the door over the doorway, sew each wall of the bug cage to the bottom square, sew up each side of the box and sew the lid onto the top. Decorate the bug box with buttons or beads, place sticks and vegetation in the bug box and set the bug box in your yard with the door open. Place a piece of food or cup of sugar water inside the box to catch bugs or place a trail of food in front of the box.
