POM-POM LOVE BUGS WITH PRINTABLE VALENTINES

MATERIALS

  • yarn
  • scissors
  • pipe cleaners
  • foam hearts
  • googly eyes
  • glue dots or craft glue
  • small felt balls
  • printable Love Bug Valentines
  • small toy plastic bugs (optional)

DIRECTIONS

  1. Gather and prepare your materials. Cut pipe cleaners in half. Since our pom-pom bugs are small, you’ll only need 1/2 pipe cleaner for each one.

2. Wrap yarn repeatedly around a fork. Keep wrapping! About 20-30 times will ensure that your finished pom-pom is nice and full.

3. While the yarn is still on the fork, slide a pipe cleaner through the fork’s prongs and around the bundle of yarn. Pull it tightly around the middle of the yarn and twist it a few times. The excess ends of the pipe cleaner will become the bug’s antennae. Snipe the yarn from the skein.

4. Cut through all of the looped pieces of yarn. Give the pom-pom a haircut by cutting all of the strands of yarn shorter and into a more uniform shape.

5. Use glue dots or craft glue to adhere the bottom of the pom-pom onto a foam heart. This will serve as the bug’s feet. Twist the ends of the pipe cleaners into the desired shape for the bug’s antennae.

6. Use your adhesive to attach googly eyes and a felt ball for the nose. Repeat these steps to make a whole colony of love bugs.
