Bestow a little ladybug luck by rounding up a few of these charming beetle tie tacks (they look great on jackets and baseball caps too) for all of your favorite people.

What you'll need

  • Red and black Sculpey III clay
  • Tie tack backing (sold at most craft stores)

How to make it

  1. To make a tack, roll a lima bean-size piece of red Sculpey III clay into a round ladybug body and press it securely onto the flat surface of the tie tack backing.

  2. From a lentil-size piece of black Sculpey III clay, shape a head and press it onto the body. Use a thin log of black clay to create a centerline on the bug's body and rounded bits of black clay to make spots.

  3. Bake the decorated tack (a parent's job) according to the directions on the clay package, let cool, and the tack is ready to wear.
