Our pipe cleaner Valentine's started a pipe cleaner obsession around here, so we had to find more fun things to make with our piles and piles of chenille sticks. Birdy decided she wanted to make caterpillars. They turned out so cute!
To make these little guys you need to start off with one pipe cleaner folded in half. Take another pipe cleaner and wrap it around the first so you create a little ball.
Next, take a pencil and wrap your remaining pipe cleaners in to balls around it. They should slide off the pencil, leaving a hole in the middle large enough to thread the first pipe cleaner through.
Keep threading the puff balls until you have just about an inch and a half (around 4cm) remaining. These are your antennae. Just take these and curl them up any way you like, and viola! Caterpillars!
