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.
