Finished ladybirds

1. Make a ladybird using the glass paint and black glass pens. Paint half a glass nugget red. Wait for it to dry and then add eyes and spots to your ladybird.

2. Cut out a felt leaf using the template and then back the felt leaf with card.

3. Repeat making as many leaves and ladybirds as you wish.

The ladybirds and leaves can then be arranged to make a beautiful decoration. You can add veins to the leaf using a black felt tip pen if you wish. Glass nuggets can also be used to make bees and flowers.
