1. Start by cutting a popsicle stick in half (an adult will need to do this step). Use those two halves as a base and glue six popsicle sticks to the front of them with your tacky glue. Let the glue dry completely.


2. Use your Elmer’s Squeeze ‘n’ Brush Glitter Painters to paint the front of your popsicle sticks.



3. While your paint is drying, cut your pipe cleaners into quarters. You’ll need eight pieces, six for the legs and two for the antennae. Also, cut heart shaped wings out of your wax paper.


4. When your paint is dry, tape your antennae and legs to the back of your popsicle sticks. Then glue your heart wings on the back of the popsicle sticks.


5. Glue on your googly eyes, pom pom nose and heart jewel. Then draw a smile onto your love bug. Finish your craft by threading the heart beads through your antennae and then bending down the pipe cleaner to hold it in place.
