We finally crafted our own Cupid's Arrows! I took inspiration from all of the great examples on my previous post. Ours is a combination of the feather arrows and the traditional red and pink Valentine's colors. I know one thing-feathers are messy!
These would also be great décor for couples showers, baby showers, engagement parties, etc.
Here are the supplies you'll need:
All of these can be purchased at Hobby Lobby. I also bought two glass vases on sale there to hold our arrows.
Start by hot gluing your feathers and/or heart to the top of your skewer on each side.
The felt hearts had sticky backing which made it super easy. Just stick two back to back on the end of your skewer.
I just love these red burlap hearts!
Then tie on a ribbon or twine..
I had two pairs of helping hands for this craft too!
My six year old actually came up with the idea to layer the felt hearts! I thought they turned out better than the feathers. She is my crafty girl.
I have them on our mantle for now but they don't show up well. They would probably pop on an entry table or coffee table where you can see them up close.
My little cardinal goes well with the red accents!
A pretty easy little Valentine craft to brighten up your home for winter! I hope you'll try making your own Cupid's Arrows.
