How to Make a Ladybug Welcome Sign
Welcome everyone into your home with your own handmade Ladybug Welcome Sign! Filled with bright and beautiful colors, it is the perfect way to welcome everyone over.
Paint sign, ladybug & "Welcome"
Water down the brown paint and apply it to the sign, ladybug and "Welcome." Let Dry.
Loosely paint the sign green, leaving the edges brown.
Paint flowes, "Welcome," & heart
Paint the flowers yellow, the "Welcome" ivory and the heart red. These may require two coats for even coverage.
Paint circles and small heart
Paint two 1'' circles and the small heart on the "welcome" with the coral chalk paint.
Paint the ladybug red and black.
Sand the surfaces of the flowers, circles, hearts and ladybugs.
Apply Mod Podge®
Apply two coats of the Mod Podge® to the sign and all pieces. Let dry.
Glue three spools along the back of the ladybug and glue it to the top left of the sign.
Glue "Welcome" & flowers
Arrange the "Welcome" and the flowers onto the sign, letting the edges hang off. Hot glue them into place.
Tie raffia around the handle and trim as needed.
