Love Bug Tutorial

We’re gearing up for February with a craft that celebrates love, friendship, and imagination! These love bugs are a simple craft with endless possibilities. As Madison says in the tutorial, “Love bugs don’t actually exist, so you can make them however you want!”

And your imagination doesn’t have to stop there… you can create an entire story for your little love bugs. What are their names? Where do they live? What do they like to eat?

Make.Do.’s mission is to use creativity as a way to connect and care for others. We think these love bugs are a perfect way to do just that! Connect with your family over a Valentine’s craft night, send a love bug care package to friends far away, or just leave a bug and note to let someone know they’re on your mind.

Things to grab before you start:

  • pom-poms, beads, pipe cleaners, googly eyes (or one of Make.Do.’s Love Bug Kits)
  • hot glue gun
  • wire snips or scissors to cut pipe cleaners

You did it!

We want to see what you made! Be sure to tag Make.Do. if you share it on social media so we can brag on you.
