Ladybug Craft

Paper, glue and a few fun craft eyes come together to create a cute ladybug craft your older kids will LOVE to make!

I made these with Rolf, who is 8. We quickly discovered that a hot glue gun is a necessity for creating these!  

Otherwise, the supplies are quite common, making these perfect for a quick afternoon craft, or a way to make something worth bugging out over on a day that is maybe rainy, or too hot to get out and play! 


  • Cut a circle in the size of your choice from the red paper.  With the leftover paper, cut 4 strips that are about 1" longer than the circle you just made. This will be your body.
  • Fold all of the ends of red strips over, then begin gluing them on the red circle. Glue the "tabs" you just created by folding ends. As you can see, I started with one strip going across the circle, then I continued until the strips had formed a shell.
  • Cut an oval-ish shape from the black paper, glue this under the shell you just made to form the head.
  • Add 2 craft eyes to the head.
  • With a marker, carefully add black dots.
  • Allow to dry, and you have a fun 3D Ladybug!

This 3 D Paper Lady Bug Craft  is perfect for kids of all ages. It is so easy, that even the little ones can help make these! With red and black paper and some glue you too can create these. The cute googly eyes are optional. If you have them, of course, use them. If not, create eyes with paint, paper, buttons, or something else. 

The supplies couldn't be more basic. Glue, 2 circles of red paper, in any size you like, and black paper, and a background are all that is required really. I used a hole punch to make circles easily and I had 2 pink googly eyes, so I used them!

Cut your circles together so they are the same size. 
Then fold them in half.

Glue one side of the circle to your background paper.
Line the other folded circle up and glue it on the paper.
Cut a teardrop shape from the black paper and affix this as the head of the 3D Ladybug.

Create and affix black dots with a hole punch, or a marker.
Then attach the eyes
Now you have a cute and super easy 3d paper ladybug  craft!
