We had so much fun making these popsicle stick love bugs! They make the perfect Valentine’s Day craft.

MATERIALS – Popsicle sticks – Yarn in Valentine’s colors – Pipe cleaners in Valentine’s colors – Small googly eyes – Glue gun – Pink or red markers – Hole punch – Heart paper punch – Cardstock in Valentine’s colors

INSTRUCTIONS 1. First, have the kids color both ends of their popsicle stick with a red or pink marker so you don’t have to worry about having the yarn go right to the ends.

2. Next, wrap yarn scraps around your popsicle sticks. I found that 3 different colors of yarn looked the best.

3. Once you are done wrapping all of your yarn around your popsicle stick, you can add the pipe cleaner antennae. Cut each pipe cleaner in half, use half a pipe cleaner for each love bug.

4. This next step should be done by an adult only. Glue your googly eyes onto your love bugs with a glue gun.
