I love ladybug stuff. I should probably rephrase that, I love making ladybug stuff! They’re so darn cute, and so easy to make. If there’s something round and red, chances are I’ll turn it into a ladybug!
I’ve actually been meaning to make this hat for a couple of months, but you know how that is, things you want to do get pushed aside for things you have to do. So I squeezed it in between things I had to do today. :)
This is a really easy project, and super fun for kids. You can get this done in the morning and wear it in the afternoon!
Ladybug Baseball Hat
You will need
red baseball cap
black and white acrylic paint
round stencil sponges
What you do
Mix one part textile medium and 2 parts black paint in a small dish or paint palette. Dip large round applicator in black paint and gently scrape off excess. Press applicator onto hat, gently turn the applicator in a circular motion if you want to make the circle larger. It’s also helpful to do this to smooth out the border of the circle. Repeat this all over the top of the hat.
Use a wide paintbrush to paint the bill of the hat with black paint. Let it dry completely.
Use large round applicator dipped in white paint (mixed with textile medium) and dot two eyes onto the black bill. When the white is dry, use a smaller round applicator to dot on two pupils.
