Easy Last Minute Costume - Ladybug

Hi! Here is another super easy costume DIY for all you procrastinators out there. I know that there are countless ladybug costumes on the market, but that doesn't make these little critters any less cute! And I mean, come on, who doesn't love wearing polka dots and the color red?
Supplies: black felt, black pipe cleaners, red top, red skirt, tights, glue, scissors, bobby pins. 
Recreating this look is silly easy! First, trace a circle shape onto paper, and used it to cut out a bunch of black felt circles. Glue them randomly onto your red top ( I used a leotard.) You can also do the same for your skirt if you want to have polka dots all over. Add a pair of black, red, or polka dot tights (mine are from Jo-Ann Fabrics.) To finish of the look, cut a black pipe cleaner in half, shape them to look like two antenna, and bobby pin to your hair. 
I opted not to make any wings to keep this look really simple. You could always make your own, or go out and buy a pair that match if you really want some to float around in. I also want to mention that you could easily change this look to be a watermelon by wearing a green skirt instead or red! Happy costuming!
