How to Make Handmade Ladybugs out of Wool !

Ladybugs – small insects that are well known to everyone because of its bright color and black speckles. Surely all of you planted a ladybug on his hand, saying: “Ladybug, fly away to heaven, bring us bread, black and white, but not burnt.” These insects are very nice, and I want to make them the object of their own creativity.


In order to make just such fun insects, we need:

1. Vata;
2. PVA glue;
3. Gouache brush;
4. waxed cord brown or black;
5. Shears;
6. Millet (4 grains).

1. First, we prepare a solution – PVA glue diluted with water to the consistency of milk, take a small ball of cotton wool, lower it into the solution, giving wool clot properly soak. Forming of wet wool here are voluminous “ovals” as in the photo. The long side of the “oval” should be about 1,7sm. Then they must be dried.
