How to Make a Heart Shaped Caterpillar Craft
Step 1 Paint your craft stick with paint or glitter glue and let it dry.
Step 2 While the paint is drying, cut out lots of paper hearts with the colors of your choice. These should be small hearts. Cut a slit at the bottom of the heart from the point to about 1/2 way up.
Step 3 Cut several small pieces of pipe cleaner and bend to form feet. Glue to both sides of the craft stick for the legs. This will help hold up the catterpillar.
Step 4 Cut two slightly longer pieces of pipe cleaner to form the antenna’s. Glue these to both sides near the front of the craft stick.
Step 5 Glue on wiggle eyes on both sides of the craft stick at the front.
Step 6 Now spread a small amount of glue on the craft stick on both sides. Then slip each heart (using the slit) onto the craft stick to form the caterpillar’s fuzzy body.
Allow the glue to dry before handling this caterpillar craft. Once it’s dry, set this cute guy on a table to show him off for this special event. In addition to this caterpillar craft be sure to check out all the Valentine crafts on this site.
