Ladybugs for Meals on Wheels

I have been making some Ladybugs for Meals on Wheels. This has been a labor intensive project, many steps, but super easy. I like to craft while I watch my favorite television shows.


When I make something for Meals on Wheels I have to make 50!

Supply List:

Black scrapbook or construction paper

circle punch 1 or 1 1/2" round

soda tabs

red Sharpie

black Sharpie

black wire

sharp scissors

black seed beads

small google eyes

glue gun and glue sticks

red scrapbook paper

small plastic bags

small white labels

black pen

mini ladybug stickers

Directions:



Cut wire into 1 1/2" pieces and wrap a small black seed bead around each end.


Punch out some black circles - if you don't have a black punch just trace a small shot or juice glass. Attach the beaded wire to the back of the black circle using a small drop of hot glue.


Using the red Sharpie completely color the soda tabs red. When the red has dried use the black Sharpie to make the dots. Heat up the glue gun and attach the soda tabs and google eyes to the round black circle.


They look so cute! Once the hot glue is dry - the Ladybugs can be packaged.


Cut the red scrapbook paper to fit inside the small plastic bag. Then pop the ladybug into the bag.



I added a label and mini Ladybug sticker to complete the little soda tab Ladybug.
