DIY Easy Leaf Insect Craft
- A white sheet of paper
- A pair of scissors
- Leaves in different colors and shapes
- Black sketch pen
- Orange and green pencil colors
- Liquid glue
Step 1: Starting With The Sheet Of Paper
Take a white sheet of paper and cut a big circle out of it and place it on the table. Now, take a big green leaf and cut off its petiole. Apply some liquid glue to one of its sides. Finally, paste the leaf at the bottom of the circular sheet as shown in the picture above.
Step 2: Working On A Red Leaf
Take a small red diamond-shaped leaf and cut off its petiole. Now, paste this leaf above the green leaf on the left section of the sheet.
Step 3: Making Eyes For The Insect
Take a white sheet of paper and cut two small circles out of it. Now, with a black sketch pen, make a dot on the right side of each circle. Finally, paste the circle next to each other on the top section of the red leaf you pasted in the previous step.
Step 4: Adding Arms And Legs To The Leaf
Using the same sketch pen, make two wings on the vertical sides of the leaf. These wings should resemble the handle of a mug. Now, dar two legs on the bottom side of the leaf. Finally, draw two antennas on the top side of the leaf. This completes the process of making the first insect. Isn’t it cute?
Step 5: Adding Arms To The Insect
Draw two arms on the vertical sides of the leaf and at the end of the arms, draw prominent dots. Now, connect a vertical line to this dot, and on the top of this vertical line draw a small floral shape. The insect now is holding a flower in its hands.
Step 6: Make A Similar Green Insect
Repeat the steps of making the insect, starting right from cutting the petiole up to making the flower, but this time with a green diamond-shaped leaf and on the right section of the sheet. Now, using a black sketch pen, draw a smiley on the red insect and a bow below the smiley. Finally, make a smile on the green insect with a tongue sticking out.
Step 7: Coloring The Flowers
Take an orange pencil color and color the flower on the right side and draw two curved lines at the bottom of each wing of the green insect. Now, color the flower on the left side with green pencil color and draw two curved lines at the bottom of each wing of the red insect.
Finally, The Happy Little Insects
This completes the process of making the insects with all their wings, antennas, flowers, and of course the little bow.
