People told me ladybug is for good luck and I’ve been believing in that ever since. I can never have enough of ladybugs in my art or crafts. Thanx to Handprint and Footprint Arts, let’s do a footprint ladybug today 🙂

Remember the Foam Insects Bookmark we did some time ago? We were redecorating our studio when I thought of doing it on a bigger scale this time.

Foam LadyBug Wall Decor

Draw a circle on a red piece of craft foam.

Draw the outline of the ladybug and cut.

Paste the wings onto the body.

Use a coin and draw the outline. Cut out ten as the spot for the wings. Use decorative stones for the eyes and you are done. Put some double layered tape at the back and paste it onto your wall 🙂

This has got to be one of the simplest origami ever! If you ever want to try origami, this origami ladybug is definitely for you.
Fold a square paper half.
Fold down both corners leaving some space in the middle.
Flip it over and fold the upper part to the middle point.
Fold a little back up.
Flip it over again and decorate it with some black dots.
Simple? Too simple… This origami ladybug is just way too simple. 😀

I was clearing my drawer when I saw many Chinese New Year greeting cards. Then it hit me, why not turn them into something beautiful, something useful…
Don’t throw away your greeting cards. It is getting rare these days as many people opt to send virtual greetings instead…
Cut out a strip to wrap the tea light and a circle for the bug.
Cut out the head and some legs from black craft foam.
I flip through old magazines to find pages with black printout and cut out small circles for the dot on the bug’s body. I also cut out my old place mat for the base of my bug.
Glue them all together and I got this beautiful tea light holder, from recyclable items! Simple!
