Step 1: Cut some felt shapes

For each little love bug you will need to cut a large heart and two tiny hearts from felt.

The large heart is for your love bug to sit on (as it’s feet) so use your pom pom as a guide for sizing.

You also need to cut two little lengths of pipe cleaner for the bug’s antennae.

Step 2: Glue the pom pom on the heart base

Glue your pom pom onto the large felt heart.

A glue gun makes this really easy or you could use strong, tack glue, such as fabric glue.

You might need to hold them in place until the glue dries to make sure they are secure.
