I have a little problem. An addiction, really. I’m finally ready to admit it. Actually, it’s probably pretty noticeable. I’m addicted to coffee. Particularly, the bottles of iced coffee. But I figured I might as well put that addiction to some use. Hence, our Easter Bunny Milk Bottles, Newspaper Bottle Cap Flowers, Bottle Cap Christmas Ornaments. I’m sure you get the idea. Well now, we’ve made Bottle Cap Ladybugs!
For these Bottle Cap Ladybugs, you first need to drink a lot of coffee. And by you, I mean an adult. That’s my personal favorite part.
Then, it’s time to paint the bottle caps black. Trace another bottle cap on red paper, cut out then cut in half. Glue those onto a black cap for the wings before dotting with black paint. Finish the ladybug by punching a 1” circle of black paper and apply a pair of googly eyes.
- iced coffee bottle caps
- black paint
- black and red paper
- 1” hole punch
- googly eyes
First, paint the bottle caps black. Let dry completely.
Trace around one bottle cap on a sheet of red paper. Cut out the circle, then cut in half. Glue onto the bottle cap, with the tip of the wings touching. Dot black paint onto the red wings using the tip of the paintbrush.
From the black paper, punch a circle with the 1” hole punch. Glue onto the bottle cap where the wings meet. Add googly eyes.
These Bottle Cap Ladybugs are a cute craft to play with as is, or add a magnet on back for a sweet spring decorative touch!
