The kids and I saw these and decided to try to make our own. We love how our love bugs came out! This is what we used: foam, googly eyes, pipe cleaner, puff ball, toothpick, glue, gluegun (optional), and a heart puncher (optional).
First, I cut a piece of foam down to about 1×8 inches. Then I folded it accordion style and stick the toothpick through it.
Cut the pipeclaner down a fold the ends a bit so that the foam will not slide off of it. While the kids did that, I cut the rest of the pipecleaner down to make the antennae. I also used my heart punch to punch little hearts from the reamaining foam. Next, I used the glue gun to glue on the antennae. While that dried, I glued the eyes onto the puff ball head and then I glued the head where I just glued the antennae.
