We saw our first ladybug of the season yesterday and that inspired this fun upcycle sculpture!

Start with:

  • Cardboard Piece (an egg carton would work great, too)
  • Cardstock Bits
  • Shredded Green Paper Grass
  • Paint
  • Paintbrush
  • Scissors
  • Glue
  • Single Hole Paper Punch

Create it!

Step 1: Paint the cardboard piece or egg carton and allow to dry.

Step 2: Cut circles from red cardstock.

Step 3: Glue a black line down the middle (trim if needed) and spots.

Step 4: Add a head, we used a 1 inch. paper punch but a freehand circle would be just fine!

Step 5: Cut strips of green cardstock and fold accordion style back and forth.

Step 6: Attach the strips to the bottom of each ladybug.

Step 7: Glue the strips to the top points of the sculpture.

Step 8: Add the shredded paper grass.

This upcycled project adds a bit of Spring whimsy to any room!
