Love Bugs by Post


A special delivery of the
 cutest little love bugs
arrived on my doorstep
via the sweetest niece and toddling great-niece
on the planet!

Talk about melting your heart!!

Those tiny, curly antennae instantly had
me wrapped around their fingers...
er, I mean... heart-shaped feet.

This is clearly a project even little ones
can make with adult supervision
{so they don't swallow the tiny parts or something}

Delightful!




You'll probably see them making 
guest star appearances on some of my 
upcoming posts.
Gotta encourage that creative urge 
in my sweet little niece :)




Get bit by the Love Bug for Valentine's Day!

Supplies:
sparkly pompoms
googly eyes
small pipe cleaners
foam heart shapes
glue

I don't know if it's good to eat a Love Bug, but I think it's a good thing to be bitten by one.

How cute! I remember making love bugs out of yarn as a young girl. How fun to make them out of sparkly pom-poms and their little movable eyes are adorable! Thanks for bringing back a fun memory!
