Making A Ladybug

Hello again!

Here’s a pretty easy one. Not nearly as much serious crafting skills required as the Favorite Things book!

Ladybug Note | Fairy Project Blog | GardenFairies.caOur little friend next door, asked what it was like to be a fairy.  So Petal and Thorn left her this note, and two little treasures. Teensy weensy lady bugs.

All you need – is some teensy-weensy pebbles, as lady-bug shaped as you can find, a little red acrylic paint and a black sharpie.

Paint the pebbles red. Then with your black sharpie make it look like a ladybug!  For the eyes, I took a toothpick and put a tiny white dot of White-Out. After it dried, a tiny dot of black. When everything was fully dried, I put a coat of varnish on them. But some clear nail polish would do the trick too!Ladybugs | Fairy Project Blog | GardenFairies.ca

There you have it.

I’ve seen a similar technique done – making upholstery tacks into little mushrooms. Give that a try too!

Have fun and keep the magic alive!

Cheers, Lorie
