We have hundreds upon hundreds of pom poms in our craft box and we rarely ever get to use them. This is simply because we have a baby in the house who loves to eat everything and anything. Pom poms seem to have a habit of getting everywhere and like all small crafty items prove a choking risk – any parent of a baby knows the process of constantly scouring the floor for any potential edibles! However, the other day she decided have a monstrously long nap. So, my son and i decided to have our own pom pom making party. We had loads of fun and came up with loads of super cute pom pom pals but this pom pom ladybug pal was our firm favourite!
You will need
1 Large red pom pom 1 medium black pom Several small black pom poms 2 googly eyes Glue (we used a glue gun as pom poms can be a bit fiddly!)
Take your head piece (the medium black pom pom) and glue it on to the big red pom pom which will make your ladybug’s body.
Cover your Ladybugs red body in the small black pom poms, these will be your ladybug’s spots. To finish her off, glue on two googly eyes! how cute is this little one! we loved them so much we made a couple and a little paper leaf for them to sit on.
