Cupid’s Arrows Valentine’s Day Craft

We went out for Asian food on the weekend, and the kids loved trying chopsticks. After lunch one of them asked if we could take the disposible chopsticks home and make something out of them. I came up with Cupid’s arrows as a Valentine’s Day craft, and I love how they turned out -so simple and so cute.

Here’s how we made them. We used sticky backed glitter foam paper, baker’s twine, and embroidery cotton, pink and red feathers, and some tape.

We started out taping four feathers, two red, two pink to the square end of the disposable chopstick.

Then, we wrapped the taped area with the baker’s twine and embroidery cotton, and tied it tightly. To make the arrow we just cut out a pink and red heart from glitter foam paper, peeled off the sticker backing and stuck them together on the pointy end of the chopstick. Easy peasy.

They turned out really cute. We discovered by accident how cool they are to throw, since the feathers make them spin as they go through the air, and the foam tip makes for a soft landing.

With sweet Cupid’s arrows like this, life really is a party.
