Tips

If you intend to work with beach pebbles to make your ladybugs, use smooth and oval shaped small or medium sized pebbles. If you want to craft a decorative garden ladybug rock, chose either a rounded, rather flat, big beach rock or a large oval shaped beach rock with a surface as smooth as possible. Let craft paint dry completely before applying another color or before gluing other decorative craft materials onto your beachstone ladybugs designs. Also, let your painted beach pebble ladybugs dry completely before gluing them onto other surfaces (e.g. wood). Use a good quality craft glue and good quality craft paints, for a creation that would last. And, as with all craft making, you are advised to gather your materials first, before you start creating your ladybug crafts. Mixing materials that at first glance seem to be a bad match (like silk and raffia, for example) for the embellishment of your ladybug crafts creations, may result in unique artwork. Look at online pictures of ladybug crafts with all types of materials, study various crafting techniques and apply any of your acquired knowledge to your beachstone ladybugs crafts. Don’t be afraid to experiment.

To avoid big mistakes, lay out your embellishing materials (as in your pattern) on the painted pebble stones or beach rocks before gluing them onto your beach stones. If you like the way it looks, go ahead and create your beachstone ladybug. If not, rearrange them and try a different pattern till you are satisfied. But if you do make a mistake and glue an embellishment in the wrong place, don’t ruin your work by trying to unglue it - continue your crafting as if the “mistake” was not a mistake but part of your intended design. Great artists throughout the centuries have built masterpieces on their mistakes.

Use the above beachstone ladybug crafts ideas to decorate your home, to create lovely and artful things to sell, or to give as keepsake presents to friends, family, teachers. You can even offer them as unique handmade “thank you” gifts. Some of these beach stones ladybug crafts (like: Beach pebbles ladybug jewelry and Beach pebble ladybug fridge magnets) are also ideal to make and give as party favors.

Be creative with your materials and have fun!
