Got a number of unused golf balls at home? Then recycle them and make a cute decoration for your garden!
Painting these balls to look like ladybugs is easy so it’s a great project to do with kids. As long as they already have good control of their hands, they can definitely make their own beautiful DIY ladybugs. Just don’t forget to wear an appropriate mask when you spray paint these balls!
The featured DIY ladybugs here are an example of the basic way to make this cute decor idea. But you can be more creative. Use other recyclable materials such as old wire hangers and empty plastic bottles to create the legs and wings!
Is this going to be your next family fun activity?
