Valentine’s Day Critters
I wanted to make something that was fun and easy for Valentine’s Day this year. This is something that even your kids could help you with, and maybe give one to their friends, teacher, etc. They are pretty easy to make, and if you don’t have a Pom Pom Maker, you can always do this by just wrapping the yarn around your hand, and tying it up to create a Pom Pom that way. Head over here to find out how.This just uses basic materials and can be personalized however you wish. I hope you like it, and would love it if you could share this by tweeting, pinning etc. Thanks, and have a blessed day!
“Valentine’s Day Critters” Craft
- Pom Pom Maker
- Pipe Cleaners
- Craft Punch
- Glue Gun / Craft Tape
- Wiggle Eyes
- & Time!
I started by creating a Pom Pom using my Pom Pom Maker. The size and color is your choice.
I then put my son to work using my craft punches to make a circle for a base, and heart shapes for their feet. Again, size and color is up to you.
I used some craft tape to attach the hearts to the circle to use as the feet.Then, I glued the Pom Pom to the base to start creating the “critter”.Once it was secure, and the glue was dry, I began adding the wiggle eyes to the front.Next, using a pipe cleaner, I cut about a 1.5″ piece to be the antenna.With just a bit of hot glue, I attached some more of the hearts, that my son helped me make, and used those to adorn the top.By just adding a small amount of hot glue to the base, I was able to attach them to the top of the Pom Pom.That’s all it took – you can change it up however you wish and have a bunch of little “Valentine’s Day Critters” to enjoy!
Hope you like it! Please take a minute to leave me a comment and let me know what you would do different, or what you would add, etc. Be sure to tweet, pin, share, etc. – thanks!!
