Make a pompom by wrapping yarn around floppy disk (or heavy cardboard) as least 100 times. Cut a 6" piece of yarn and slide it under wrapped yarn. Tie tightly into a double knot. Turn floppy over and cut completely through yarn on this side. Turn yarn blob sideways and smooth down strands.

Bend a chenille stem in half and push it up through the pompom.

Cut out 1 section of the egg carton. Trim so it sits securely upside down. Cut a large heart (about 4") out of craft foam. Use tacky glue to glue the egg cup upside down in the center of the heart. You can also use a styrofoam ball. Cover the top and some of the sides of the cup with tacky glue. Separate the strands of the pompom to fit the egg cup up inside. Press pompom into place. Arrange yarn and bend chenille stems if desired.

Cut out two hearts for eyes and one for mouth. Cut out two small circles for pupils. Use tacky glue to secure in place. Give love bug to some one you love for Valentine's Day. Make another one for yourself!
