Here is my instructable for building a ladybird house. These can be bought from garden centres and various supermarkets ranging from around £6 upto £13. My idea is virtually the same design as the bought examples but cheaper. The materials that I used are 5mm plywood, pva glue, small nails 10mm long, hammer, measuring tape and pencil.
First I started with a sketch of how I wanted it to look and made a quick drawing of the box sides and sizes.
Mark these sizes onto your wood ready to cut out.
Step 1: Building the box
This is where all the parts have been cut to size and starting to glue and nail the sides onto the bottom.
