This little lady bug is as cute as can be and is easy to make out of a clay pot and a few basic craft supplies. This one stands up higher, but, if you prefer, you can make a ladybug using a clay saucer instead and it will look like it's crawling.

  • Age Guideline: 6 Years and Up
  • Time Required: 30 minutes (Does not include drying time)

The above age and time guidelines are estimates. This project can be modified to suit other ages and may take more or less time depending on your circumstances.

Materials Needed:

Wipe down your terra cotta pot with a damp cloth and let dry completely.

Turn the clay pot upside down and paint the clay pot red and black to look like a ladybug. Paint the wooden ball black. Put them aside to dry.

Once the paint is dry, glue the wooden ball onto the bottom of the clay pot. Paint a mouth and eyes on the wooden ball. Once all your paint is dry, spray it with the clear acrylic sealer.

Cut two pieces of chenille stem approximately 2-inches long. Glue the two pom-poms onto one end of each chenille stem piece. Glue these 'antenna' on top of the ladybug's head. Cut two half circles out of craft foam, and glue them onto the bottom edge of the clay pot for feet. Your ladybug is now complete.
