Cupid’s arrows are filled with love. This arrow is a fabulous way to add a little love and décor for Valentine’s Day to your home or office. It is easy to create and only requires a few materials.
To make it you will need:
Clear all of the little sticks from your branch so it is straight. Tie three pieces of ribbon to the shaft with the ends hanging at different lengths.
Cut a triangle out for the arrow head. You can stitch on it to add character. I used my sewing machine. Attach it to the branch with hot glue.
Cut felt pieces for the arrow fletching too. I also added stitching to these. Attach these to the branch with hot glue.
Add felt hearts to the bottoms of the ribbon using hot glue. I cut these hearts out using a Sizzix die and die-cut machine. To hand the branch I wrapped a little wire around the shaft.
This would make a great project for all ages and would work great in a group environment. I think we will make them in the Girl Scout troop! What a great way to teach the parts of the arrow!
You can now find an expanded color line of Kunin Eco-fi Classicfelt; Eco-fiPlus™ Premiumfelt and ShaggiChic non-wovens fabrics in cut by the yard at your local Walmart; please inquire as to what is available in your area.
Cheers to LOVE and creating masterpieces,
