Step by Step How to Instructions
Lets first start by drawing a leaf on the green construction paper. We are going to stick the ladybug on this leaf so draw the leaf size accordingly.
Now using scissor, cut the leaf properly.
To make a ladybug, take a black construction paper and cut out two strips.
Out of the two black strips, keep one strip wider than the other.
We are going to use the wider black strip to make the body of ladybug and the other strip will be used to make head of ladybug.
Roll the black strip. You may need to trim the paper to get a proper shape. Check below images to get an idea how I did it.
Using Glue join the ends together so that you will get a roll.
Repeat the above steps to make one more black roll.
Now stick both the rolls on the construction paper leaf to make ladybug body.
Remember the bigger roll is body and the smaller one is head of the ladybug.
Cut out a circle. We are now going to make the wings.
Fold the paper like below.
Drow half circle on the folded paper and cut it out.
Once you open the half circle, you will get a nice circle.
Using a marker or sketch pen, draw big dots on this circle. Make sure to keep some space between dots.
Cut the circle in two equal parts.
Its time to give two beautiful eyes to this paper ladybug, so that she can see the world 🙂 . I have used two googly eyes. You can use wiggle eye stickers or simply draw eyes by your hand. As you wish 🙂
Dont you think, she is already looking so cute?? Awwww
Now let the ladybug fly high. Time to give her wings.
Using glue, stick the wings just behind her head.
One wing besides another.
