Ladybug Craft

My son enjoyed our first Felt Craft Projects and has been bugging me to do another one, but since I don’t have much time I decided to find an easier craft project to work on. Since I have some black and red craft felt I suggested we do ladybug craft and he immediately approved. This Ladybug Craft Mask project is super easy to make and looks really cute!

Felt Craft Projects: Ladybug Craft Mask



Paper Plate

Red and Black Craft Felt

Glue Gun

Cutter Elastics for Ear Loops


Cut the paper plate in half with a v-shaped pattern (refer to the picture).  We’re going to use the one with inverted v shape. You should measure this according to the size of the kid’s face.  The inverted V sits on top of the kid’s nose.


Glue the red felt paper on your paper plate.

Then using the black felt paper, cut out small circles.  You should also cut out a half circle pattern.


On your paper plate, place the black half circle pattern in the middle lower section and glue it.

Then to follow the layout of the paper plate, cut the black felt paper so it follows the v pattern (refer to the picture above for the shape).

On the upper half of the paper plate, glue the small circles to make it look like the dots of ladybugs ladybug-5

Using the black felt paper, cut out two strips. You can glue it on a cardboard paper first before placing it on your mask to make sure it will hold its shape. This will serve as the antenna of the ladybug.


On top of the two strips, cut out and glue two huge circles on top. ladybug-7

Now it’s time to make holes for the eyes. I used a large bottle cap as my pattern, then using a cutter I traced around it. Make sure to measure the spacing so your kid will be able to comfortably see.


You can place this on a stick for a handheld mask or punch a small hole on two sides and attach an elastic thread for earloops.

That’s it a cute, fun and easy Ladybug Craft Mask!

    I am going to make this next time my niece comes over. She loves making crafts and I like to have a special projects for her when she visits.

    I have to be honest. Crafts are an inspiration that my single-mother tried to pass on to us children; regardless if it was for ourselves or maybe doing it for the purpose of another. I continue to do it as my pain has really gotten in the way recently but I keep fulfilling my dreams. And unfortunately the pain originated from being injured in an accident which has made it impossible to afford to buy a gift or even make some gifts so any FREE items / giveaways are a huge help. And since I found a couple of sites that have items that I need for giveaways, like this one, the make-overs, electronic related items, crafts and kitchen goods all are items that I really, really need! Therein I just will hope for the best for not only myself but all those that enter any & all the sweepstakes!


    That looks like a very creative idea with the use of resources available in most cases.
