Ready to make these cute little creatures? Let’s make them
Paper Ladybug Craft
What you need
- paper in red and black (and just a little bit of white)
- stick glue
- black marker
Cut a circle shape out of red paper (it’s best to use construction paper as base). Cut strips of red paper.
Take one strip of paper and glue it onto the base as shown on the picture. Glue on the next one at a 90° angle to the first one.
Continue with next two, placing them between the first two. Depending on the size of the ladybug you are making you will need, or better say be able to, add more strips of paper to make the body of the ladybug more full.
Cut the dots (we used the glue cap as a template) out of black paper. Also cut a half circle shape for the head and two antenna. Cut two small oval shapes out of white paper and draw the eyes with black marker.
Glue on the dots and head with the stick glue.
