How to make a toilet roll love bug

Start by taking your empty toilet roll and coating it in your chosen paint and popping it aside to dry. Once dry add two eyes – we used white paper ovals and drew the details on with a marker. Cut out a heart shape for the wings, then fold each side of the heart just off center to create a small section that you can use to glue down the heart shaped wings.

Twist a pipe cleaner around the toilet roll between the eyes and wings so that you have two equal lengths. Curl the ends of the pipe cleaners around to make the antennae.

Finish off by adding some decorations to your love bug! With this one we used a hole punch to cut some little black paper spots to stick on but little hearts look fab too and you can be as creative as you like!
