Grape and Edamame Caterpillars - one of each type of caterpillarThese little caterpillar decorations are easy to make. You can use wire or toothpicks to hold them together. If you use wire, you can make them slither around. So fun!


I upcycled a bunch of grocery ties to get my wires. As these have wires and toothpicks inside, they are meant to be decorative, or as an adult snack.


  • thin wire
  • toothpicks
  • grapes
  • cooked edamame
  • black sesame seeds

Ha, these are adorable. I didn't have any edamane in the house so I used cooked lima beans instead and they were so.o.o. cute !!

I think I'll try red kidney beans too and use white sesame seeds for the eyes.
