TerraCotta Lady Bug

TerraCotta Lady Bug

Materials Needed:
2 inch Terra Cotta Clay Pot
1 1/2 inch Wooden Ball Head
2 - 1/4 inch Red Pom-poms
Black Pipe Cleaner
Black Fun Foam (optional)
Clear Acrylic Sealer Spray
Glue (hot glue gun preferred)

Wipe down your terra cotta pot with a damp cloth and let dry completely.
Paint the wooden ball head black. Use the photo above as a guideline for painting the body red and black.
Once the paint is dry, glue the wooden ball onto the bottom of the clay pot (figure 1). Paint a mouth and eyes on the wooden ball (figure 2) - you can use wiggle eyes if you like. Once all your paint is dry, spray it with the clear acrylic sealer. Cut two pieces of pipe cleaner approximately 2 inches long. Glue the two pom-poms onto one end of each pipe cleaner. Glue these 'antenna' on top of the ladybug's head (figure 3).

This part is optional! Cut two half circles out of fun foam, and glue them onto the bottom edge of the clay pot for feet. Your ladybug is now complete.
