This pom-pom love bug craft is such a fun (and adorable) craft project for kids to make at school or home this Valentine’s Day.
If you are looking for a quick, easy, and fun craft for kids to do this Valentine’s Day then these pom-pom love bugs are perfect.
UPDATE: This craft project was initially created for a website by the name of Kidzui, however that website no longer online.
Pom-pom love bug
- Pipe Cleaners (1 per love bug)
- Pom-pom maker (or alternatively 2 cardboard donuts)
- Scrap piece of colored card stock
- Googly eyes
- Craft glue
Wind the wool around the pom-pom maker (or cardboard donut) until there are a few layers of wool. Keep in mind that the more wool you wind around the thicker your pom-pom will be.
Using scissors cut the wool around the outside of the circle. Tie a piece of wool around the center and pull tight before removing the pom-pom maker or cardboard donut.
Following the line of the wool, tie your pom-pom together, wrap a pipe cleaner around the center of the pom-pom too, twisting the two ends together when they meet up. Wind the pipe cleaners into curly feelers and shape them so they make a heart.
Cut a large heart out of card stock and attach it to the bottom of the pom-pom with glue to make the love bugs feet.
Glue googly eyes to the center of the pom-pom.
