  • Pom-pom maker (or alternatively 2 cardboard donuts)
  • Scrap piece of colored card stock
  • Googly eyes
  • Craft glue

How to make:

Step 1:

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.

Step 2:

Following the line of the wool you used to 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.

Step 3:

Cut a large heart out of card stock and attach 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.
