Begin by painting the toilet paper roll with the acrylic paint of your choice. Depending on the colour you choose, you may need 2 layers. Allow the paint to dry.
As the paint dries, cut out 2 pieces of pipe cleaners, about 2 inches long each. If you have extra pipe cleaner pieces, save for another project or additional Toilet Paper Roll Love Bugs.
Cut out 2 rectangular pieces of cardstock, 4 inches x 2.5 inches each.
Fold each cardstock in half. Draw out half a heart on one side and cut to create a cardstock heart.
Time to assemble! Use a hot glue gun to glue both cardstock hearts on one side of the painted toilet paper roll.
Turn over the roll and glue the googly eyes towards the top portion of it.
Add glue to the bottom of the pipe cleaner pieces and secure each one on the inner front of the toilet paper roll.
Give the top of each pipe cleaner a little bend.
