I saw these adorable love bugs over at Moments of Mommyhood last week (?) and knew they would be a perfect craft for my anti-snow agenda. Of course when I told Maddie we were going to make a love bug she looked at me like I was insane. A love bug mom? That is not a kind of bug. She officially decided we were making a butterfly because it had wings. Oh well.
We went a little different with our
love bug butterfly but started with the basic toilet paper roll painted red.
We used contact paper and pink, red and purple glitter for the wings. I LOVE how sparkly they are!
I punched a hole in the back of the toilet paper roll for the sparkly pipecleaner antennae.
Maddie took care of stringing on a few beads for good measure.
I used the glue gun to adhere the wings and some googly eyes. I entrusted Maddie with a Sharpie to finish up.
Adorable and sparkly! Maddie gave the
love bug butterfly long hair because her name is Rapunzel!
