-And any other items you would like to use when making your Pom Pom Caterpillars.
Step One :
Pick the colour Pom Pom of you choice and Glue Googly eyes using a hot glue gun,
Dont feel safe using a hot glue gun there are other alternatives such as ;double side tape or peeling googly eyes.
I chose the colour red. But feel free to pick a different colour.
Chose various colours to make the body of your Pom Pom Caterpillar.
The Amount Of Pom Poms you want to use determines the size of your caterpillar in the end.
Step 3 :
1.Cut a piece of wire,size of choice .
The Length of you wire also determines your preference of length of your pom pom caterpillar.
2.Start off by Poking the Top part of you wire through the head of your pom pom caterpillar (So the pom pom with googly eyes )
Continue the process of sliding you pom pom on the wire ,
If you find they are not staying in place , Use your hot glue gun to hold them in place.
2.Use different craft items such as ribbons , colour foam to add more character to you pom pom caterpillar .
I cut a piece of ribbon and wrapped it around the caterpillars head .
I held it in place with a glue gun like showned in pictures. You can make bow ties , hair bows , Glasses anything you would like .
Just have fun and be creative.
Step6 : Adding the Antennas
1.When adding the antennas be creative.
Bend them how ever you would like using plastic coating wires and just pop the into the top of your caterpillar.
Step7 : Completing the task .
After you caterpillar is finished to your expectations bend him around and have fun with it :) ,
