How To Make DIY Valentine Monster And Pom Pom Love Bug

Are you looking for a Valentines day kid’s craft that you could make together?  Then you are in luck! The below tutorial on how to make a ” Valentine Monster”  and a “Pom Pom Love Bug”  with heart antennas are great for kids. They would just love the idea of creating something and they can play with at home.

Caution: I am sure you will have a love bug infestation! I wonder what kind of exterminator you call for that.

Ready to make some love bugs of your own? Let’s get started!




Valentine Monster:

Supplies Needed:

  • Woolen yarn
  • 4×5 Inches cardboard paper( I just cut mine from a Cheerios box)
  • Googly eyes
  • Egg carton (For making the bug stand still)
  • Hot glue or Craft glue (Takes a bit more time to dry)
  • Heart shaped Foam sheets
  • Pipe cleaners or chenille stem
  • Scissors


  1. Take the cardboard piece and wrap the woolen yarn around several times to make a thick layer. Make a tight knot and remove the cardboard carefully.
  2. Now opposite to the knot cut the yarn as shown in the video. Level it by cutting the extras on the edges.
  3. Take an egg carton and cut the single egg holder, paste the yarn bundle over the egg carton.
  4. Now starts the easy part. Just paste the heart shaped stickers and make a face. Paste googly eyes over the foam sheet. You can add a mouth if you want but it’s totally optional.
  5. Take a 3-4 inch chenille stem folded in half for the antenna. Glue the chenille stem onto the top of the monster.
  6. Finally, paste the mini foam hearts onto the stem. Your Valentine monster is ready!
