Ladybug is one of the cutest bug ever, In fact it’s my favorite bug as I have many childhood memories with ladybug & fireflies specially. When I were a kid, I played a lot with them.. I were used to collect these in a mason jar & it always makes me sad when they fly suddenly while playing with them. Anyways..

Today I will be sharing how to paint a stone-pebble & make a simple ladybug paper weight. It’s pretty cute & easy. Anyone can try this simple DIY idea. So have a look how I painted this stones-rock & turned it into a ladybug paper weight.

How To Paint Stones-Rocks

1- First I wash & dry the pebble, That was a plain off-white color oval shaped stone.

2- Draw the ladybug design with any pencil.

3- Apply the red color first, I used acrylic paints. Then fill black dots & area. In the last you will paint eyes of the ladybug.

4- Wait for at least 10 minutes then I applied mod podge on it. I used Mod Podge Dimensional Magic for the eyes 3D look.

Let it dry for a few minutes & this cute ladybug paperweight is ready to save your papers from slipping here & there specially when the ceiling fan is in full swing!
