And they go along perfectly with the chocolate love bug caterpillars I made last week!

Butterfly Bubbles Non-Candy Valentine Tutorial

Four butterfly bubbles valentines made with heart shaped doilies and bubble wands on a black background.

Materials for Butterfly Valentines Made from Bubbles:

Small pink bubble wand and pink pipe cleaner being twisted around top of bubble wand to make butterfly antennae

The body of the butterfly is made with mini bubble wand favors.  I bought mine at my local dollars store (8 pack for $1), but you can find similar items on Amazon (like these) as well.

Cut a pipe cleaner in half.  Twist the center of the piece of pipe cleaner around the open heart on top of the stopper on the bubbles.  Curl the ends of the pipe cleaner down to tuck away any sharp ends and make them look more like butterfly antennae.  Glue a pom pom to the bubble wand stopper, and add googly eyes.

Line of four doily hearts, four doily hearts arranged in butterfly wings, and bubbles butterfly body on top of doily wings.

The butterfly's wings are made out of miniature heart-shaped doilies.  Glue the doilies together first, then glue the butterfly body on top of the wings.
