I have been looking for bowling balls to make ladybugs ever since I saw some on Pinterest. I finally found some at a thrift store for $1.99 each. I painted them with orange paint made for plastic and made stencils from painter tape. The antenae is made from black electrical wire.  I love how they turned out.
