Easy kid’s craft project

Posted By Amanda F On August 11, 2010 @ 7:00 am In Family | 8 Comments

Finding creative ways to display your family photos [1], especially those that will reside in your child’s room, can be challenging. I have a project for you and your kids that will not only be fun to make, but will create colorful, decorative accessories to dress up frames and shelves to decorate your child’s room.

This craft project uses recycled plastic lids milk jugs and juice containers. Once completed, use these darling ladybugs to decorate a shelf, glue them to a picture frame, or fill them with modeling clay and use them to cover up pushpins.

To make these ladybugs you will need:

Plastic lids
Black acrylic craft paint
Small wiggle eyes
White craft glue

Wash and dry the plastic lid. Paint on the head by using a paintbrush to add an almond shape at one end of the lid.

Use the handle end of a paintbrush dipped in black paint to add the spots. Make some spots larger than others. Let all the paint dry.

Use white craft glue to add the wiggle eyes.

Optional: You could make these into magnets, but you would need to fill the lid with something first. I would recommend using something lightweight, like cardboard. Cut it into circle and glue it inside the cap, then add a magnet.
