Ladybug Bug Box

Ten on the 10th

Hey friends! It’s $10 on the 10th. This months theme is Ladybugs. Not gonna lie, I had to pull out the extra creative juices on this one, but I’m pretty happy with what I ended up with. Spring means planting season here in Texas. Which means that we are outside a lot more. When my boys were little I always tried to find a fun outdoor activity to keep them busy while I gardened. Since our theme is Ladybugs, it only stands to reason that I would think of a Ladybug bug box!

I picked up this colorful bug box at my local Dollar Tree.

It is so fun and colorful, however it was a little plain.

It needed a little something extra.

Plus, if you have more than one little it’s always good to do something that lets each child know who’s bug box is who’s.

Nobody needs a squabble going on while work is getting done!

Step 1

To make my bug box extra special, I cut out this vinyl ladybug on my Silhouette.

If you don’t have a cutting machine there are a ton of vinyl stickers available at craft stores.

Step 2

Apply the vinyl transfer to the bug box.

Step 4

Add extra embellishments.

I added a few “dashes” to show the ladybug’s flight.

On the back side I added the child’s name.

My Ladybug box is done!

I found this magnifying glass at Hobby Lobby and couldn’t resist adding it to the box.

Super easy and guaranteed to keep littles busy!

  1. Tammy, I love how simple your ladybug box was to decorate! Really fun project to do with the kids or to let them do themselves, too, when they are a little older. I am sure these boxes will keep your kids busy for a long time while you are out working your garden magic!! <3 Happy to be with you all on this month's ladybug tour.

    Spring hugs,
    Barb 🙂

    1. Thanks Barb, always love hopping with you on $10 on the 10th! You are so right, they would be great for the ones a little older to decorate themselves. Another project to keep them busy and have fun at the same time!

    1. They absolutely were excited. Not sure how Mom felt about taking the box home with a few little critters in it! lol But they did love the box.
