But 1st here is how to make the pom pom!

Wrap yarn around cardboard template. I wrapped about 30 -35 times. the more you wrap the thicker the pom pom will be.

Slide yarn off the card board and tie a small piece of yarn around the middle of the bundle.

Cut the loops of the yarn bundle to make them fan out. In the photo below, the right side is cut. The left is still in loops.

Once cut, fan out to create your pom pom.

Once your pom pom is made your ready to assemble the rest of the pieces into your love bug. I used a hot glue gun to hold them together.
