These adorable bugs are easy to make and a great way to use up any corks you have laying around!


  • corks
  • colored paper
  • chenille sticks
  • googly eyes
  • hot glue gun
  • scissors


  1. Cut out two heart templates from heavy paper or cardboard. Trace two of each size onto your colored papers. Cut them out.
  2. Glue the smaller heart onto the larger one. These will be the bugs wings.

  4. Using the point of your scissors, poke a hole into the top of the cork.

  7. Glue the wings to the back of the bug.
  8. Cut a piece of chenille stick approx. 2 in. long. Fold it in half and then curl the ends. (I curled them around a pencil.)

  10. Put some hot glue into the hole at the top of the cork, then insert the antennae into the hole and hold until stuck.
