I'm a sucker for cute, little crafts and this DIY project just makes me smile. How adorable are these little guys? This is a great craft for kids (or for any of us that are still kids at heart). This DIY tutorial comes from the great people at Eighteen 25.
For this project, you will need:
-- Pipe cleaners
-- Googly eyes
-- Hot-glue gun and glue sticks
-- 50z paper cups
-- Piece of cardboard – 2 1/2″ x 4″
-- Scrapbook paper (patterned)
You can find all of these items at a craft store.
Make the monsters
Take a piece of cardboard and start wrapping the yarn around the piece of cardboard. Then, take another piece of yarn and tie it around the yarn, as shown in the first picture above. Then, flip the cardboard over and cut down the center of the wrapped yarn. Then, use the hot-glue gun to glue the pom-pom on the top of the small cup. Continue making pom-poms and glue them to the cups. You can also make smaller pom-poms to be the hair of the main pom-pom (as shown in the last picture above).
This is where it gets fun! Use the pipe cleaners and the scrapbook paper to add decorations to your little monsters. Don't forget to glue on googly eyes so that your monsters can see!
Set up your little love monsters in your living space and enjoy!
