This time of year, most kids get very excited when they see lady bugs. Lady bugs just seem to one of the bugs that all kids seem to love. That makes lady bugs a great choice to use for a craft. I love any kind of craft that upcycles, or reuses, materials. That might be why I love this lady bug craft so much.
Kids can make these lady bugs and use them for playing outside with, in the grass, or use them to decorate in their rooms. No matter what the lady bugs are used for, they are simply adorable and kids will love them.
K-Cup Ladybug Craft
Materials: I have linked to some of the supplies on Amazon. While these are affiliate links, these craft supplies work great for this craft.
1. Spray your k-cups red in a well ventilated area, like in a garage or outside, and allow them to dry for about an hour. Check and respray them, if needed and let dry again. I like to spray multiple k-cups at a time in various colors, that way I have them on hand for crafts whenever the urge strikes!
2. Using the scissors, cut some small circles out of the electrical tape. It doesn’t have to be perfect, mine were not exactly circle shape. Place the dots on you ladybug.
3. Cut the black pipe cleaner into (6) 1 1/2″ sections for the ladybug’s legs.
4. Use a small pair of scissors to gently make (3) small holes on each side of the ladybug. Insert the pipe cleaners for her legs and bend at the ends.
5. Using the glue stick or low temp hot glue gun, attach a black pom pom for the ladybug’s head and then give her (2) googly eyes.
6. Lastly, cut (2) 1″ – 1 1/2″ black pipe cleaners for her antenna’s and insert in the small hole on top (bottom) of the k-cup.
