Springtime Ladybug!

In honor of the first day of Spring, here is a little ladybug to brighten your day!
 

I had some wood scraps left-over from last Fall and decided I better use them.  The first thing I did was draw a pattern and cut it out of an old cereal box.
The pattern was traced on the wood and cut out with my trusty jig saw.
After drilling a hole for the antennae and smoothing the edges with sandpaper, the ladybug was ready for paint. 

The edges were distressed and a little antique-medium was rubbed on.  I curled two pieces of black wire and put them in the drilled hole with a little glue.  The ladybug was done!
I think it's perfect for the kitchen window, don't you?

Thanks for stopping by...I hope you'll share, pin, and comment...I loooove comments!  Have a great week and Happy First Day of Spring!
