What you'll need

  • Scissors
  • 2 (12- by 18-inch) sheets of red stiff felt (we used E-Z Felt brand)
  • 9- by 12-inch sheet of black stiff felt
  • Hole punch
  • 2 yards of 1/2-inch-wide black ribbon
  • Tacky glue
  • 2 black pipe cleaners
  • 2 (1-inch) red pom-poms
  • Large marker
  • Black electrical tape
  • Brimmed black hat

How to make it

  1. With scissors, cut 2 half-circle wings from the red felt. Cut four 3-inch circles from the black felt. (Download the spot template and wing template).

  2. Overlap the wings as shown and punch 2 holes through both pieces of felt. Thread the ribbon through the holes.

  3. Lovely Ladybug - Step 3

    Glue the circles onto the wings and let them dry (about 10 minutes).

  4. For each antenna, wrap one end of a pipe cleaner tightly around a pom-pom. Twist the pipe cleaner around the marker to form a loose spiral, then tape the ends of the pipe cleaners behind the brim of the hat.

  5. Lovely Ladybug - Step 5

    To tie on the wings, simply bring the ribbon over each shoulder, cross the pieces over your child's chest, then tie the ends together in the back.
