How to Make the Craft Stick Ladybug


What you need:

  • 9 craft sticks
  • black paper
  • glue stick
  • red acrylic paint
  • paintbrush
  • black pipe cleaner
  • black pom-poms
  • artificial flower
  • googly eyes
  • white chalk marker
  • pink decor (flat beads)
  • pencil
  • scissors

Materials Used

Gather your supplies on a flat surface, such as your kitchen or dining room table.

Step by Step Tutorial

Grab one of your craft sticks and make a cut in the center of the stick with your scissors – this will help us break it in half.

Step 1

Carefully bend the craft stick and break it.

Step 2

Grab your paintbrush and begin painting all the craft sticks with red paint.

Step 3

Place the craft sticks off to the side to dry.

In the meantime, grab your black construction paper and pencil, drawing a half-circle.

Step 4

Grab your pipe cleaners and bend two of them to create antennae.

Step 5

Take the glue and apply the googly eyes onto the black half-circle – to the ladybug’s head.

Step 6

Glue your two antennae to the back of the head using your glue stick.

Use your white marker to draw a smiling face on the head of the ladybug.

Step 8

Glue on your embellishments to make the ladybug look even more adorable.

We glued tiny flat beads for the cheeks and an artificial flower for decoration.

Step 9

Glue the 8 whole craft sticks together using the two halves we broke before to create what will look like a mini fence.

Step 10

Paste your ladybug’s head to the craft stick body to the front of the body.

Step 11

Place the pipe cleaner down the center of the ladybug’s body.

Step 12

Glue your black pom-poms throughout the red craft sticks.

Step 13

Let the glue dry a bit.

Step 14

Isn’t it cute?!
