Valentine’s Day is just around the corner and it’s never been a better time to break out the crafts. I have a huge container full of craft supplies just screaming to be used so this past week I did just that. You don’t have to be a crafting expert to come up cute Valentine craft ideas you just have to put your imagination to work.
Supplies For Valentine’s Day Love Bugs
- Variety of Colored Pom-Poms
- Hot Glue Gun
- Plastic Google Eyes
- Colored Pipe Cleaners
- Heart Shaped Decorations
I found most of these supplies at the Dollar Tree. Which by the way it a great place to get Valentine Craft Ideas. The different Pom-Pom’s I found at Walmart. So now you are probably wondering how to make these adorable love bugs. It’s really easy and you can make them however you like. But just in case you need a little help getting started here’s how I made one of my love bugs.
Making the Love Bugs
First you need a base, that’s where the heart shaped decorations come in. You are going to apply one of your larger pom-poms to the base and secure it with hot glue.
Next take the pipe cleaners and cut them in half. Using the hot glue gun add a small pom-pom to the top of each pipe cleaner.
Now is the fun part! Add a small eye to each small pom-pom. Then hot glue the pipe-cleaners with eyes to the top of the large pom-pom.
And that’s it, you have a Valentine’s Day love bug! They great thing about this craft is that it’s so easy and you can make the love bugs however you want. If you want to include your kid’s in the craft making process you can use regular glue in place of the hot glue gun.
