Love Bug

Love Bug

 Make one for the love of your live and one for yourself, too!

You need:

            Red or Pink Yarn

 Pipe Cleaner

Craft Foam or Felt

Empty Egg Carton or Styrofoam Ball 5"

Square of Cardboard

Glue & Scissors

Make a pompon by wrapping yarn around a piece of cardboard at least 100 times. Turn floppy over and cut completely through yarn on this side. Turn yarn blob sideways and smooth down strands. Bend the pipe cleaner in half and push it up through the pompon. Cut out 1 section of the egg carton. Trim so it sits securely upside down. Cut a large heart (about 4") out of craft foam. Glue the egg cup upside down in the center of the heart. You can also use a Styrofoam ball. Cover the top and some of the sides of the cup with glue. Separate the strands of the pompon and secure inside the cup. Arrange yarn and bend chenille stems if desired. Cut out two hearts for eyes and one for mouth. Cut out two small circles for pupils or use googly eyes.
