Bug someone you love with these adorable Valentine's Day Love Bugs.
: 15 minutes
: Any Age
Once you have the basic method mastered, you can be as creative as you want in designing your Love Bugs.
Carefully cut a two lengths of pipe cleaner about 3 inches long.
Gently push the pipe cleaners through the centre of the pom-pom.
Bend the tops of the pipe cleaners to make the bug's antennae.
Loop the bottoms of the pipe cleaners to make the bug's feet. Adjust and position the feet until your bug can stand.
Use the craft glue to add googly eyes to your bug.
Spread the LOVE!
To make a special Valentine's surprise you can hide your Love Bugs in unexpected places- next to the cereal, inside the fridge, in a lunch box or even perched on a pillow ready for bed.
