Let’s begin making these spring crafts!
What You Need:
- Orange, white, black colored paper
- Black marker
Take black paper and cut a small circle and a big circle out of it. Bring orange paper and cut two circles of the size of the big black circle. Also, cut two small strips out of orange paper.
Now take the two orange circles and fold them in the middle horizontally like shown in the illustration.
Now apply glue on one surface of the semicircles and keep them for the next step.
Now paste these semi-circles on the big black circle you cut in Step 1. Paste them so that the open sides of the semicircles are pointing outwards and there is space between them.
Just paste them as we have done in the figure below.
Now take the small black circle and apply glue to its bottom area. Now stick this glued circle at the top backside of the shape; it will be the face.
Take a piece of white paper and fold it; now make a small circle and cut it out. This will result in two small circles.
Now make eyeballs inside the circles which will complete the eyes. Also, stick these eyes on the face with equal distance.
Now take the two orange strips you cut in Step 1. Grab the top of the strips and begin rolling them to form a shape like shown in the picture below.
Now apply glue to the bottom of the strips and stick them from the back of the face which will illustrate the antennae of our cute ladybug. These spring crafts are amazing and enjoyable.
Now mark spots on the orange wings of the ladybug. Do this using a black marker. It is your choice how many spots you want to make on each wing.
We have added the spots randomly as you can tell by looking at the figure.
