16 Amazing Clay Pot Ladybugs

Who would have realised that you could get such a wide variety of clay pot ladybugs?

“Ladybug, Ladybug
Fly away home
Your house is on fire
Your children have gone”

Strange but that is exactly what just popped into my mind. I don’t know where exactly the little rhyme comes from, but when I was a child it was what my mum used to say if a ladybug landed on her. So naturally, all us children used it too.

So just for fun, because I am really just a big kid at heart. I have found you this video on youtube.

Back to the project at hand.

Here are sixteen of the best examples of clay pot ladybugs I have found so far.

I hope you enjoy having a go at making some or all of them. I know I will.


#1  Cute Ladybugs Planter

This lovely little pot has been created with the use of decoupage.

You first need to paint the base section of the pot white and the rim green and allow to dry completely.

Whilst it is drying you will need to cut out the images you are going to use. When the paint is dry you glue your images to the pot and water seal the entire pot.
