Ladybug Fridge Magnet
These adorable ladybugs will bring you much joy when you put them on your refrigerator. Use simple supplies to craft these beautiful insects.
- plastic spoons
- plaster of Paris
- round magnets
- black pipe cleaners
- red and black paint
- paint brush
- Line up the plastic spoons in a box so that the spoon is balanced and flat. I used folded up newspaper taped to the box to create the level I needed, but you could also use a thin book, play dough, etc.
- Mix the plaster of paris by the directions on the box. Pour into each spoon.
- Place a round magnet into each plastered spoon and allow to dry. I let these dry overnight.
- Once they are dry, remove the plaster shape from the spoon.
- Paint the rounded side red and allow to dry.
- Add black ladybug markings such as a head, a line to represent wings, and spots. You can use paint, or a permanent marker if you wish to do it that way.
- Glue the black pipe cleaner to the magnet side of the shape, cutting to desired size. I used hot glue, but other glue may be used as well.
- Stick up on your fridge and enjoy!

This is a wonderful idea! I have a lady bug thing going on with my granddaughter and we'll be sure to try this. Thanks
