This is so cute and easy to make. Use any size lid from a jar and acrylic paint. If you don't have black and red cardstock or paint then allow yourself a little "poetic licence" and make your ladybirds in other crazy colours.
1 metal lid
2 wiggle eyes
black acrylic paint
Draw around the lid on the red cardstock.
Cut out the red disc.
Cut off the top third of the disc.
Cut small circles of black cardstock for the ladybird dots.
Make 2 wings by cutting the remaining red cardstock in half.
Glue the dots to the wings. If you prefer you could draw the dots with a marker pen.
Paint the metal lid with black acrylic paint.
Add the wings and wiggle eyes while the paint is still wet and it will act like glue.
If you make a mistake (like I did) and get a little of the black paint in the wrong place you can cover it up with more dots using the marker pen.
Hang the ladybird on a nail or use sticky tack.
Lots of ladybirds (ladybugs) in different colours and sizes would look lovely covering a whole wall.
