The result is a stylish decor addition that gives a nod to Valentine’s Day without screaming it too loud! Read on to see how to make this simple craft for your own home….
DIY Cupid’s Arrow Valentine Decor Craft
1. Spray paint your twigs outside in a well-ventilated area. Let the twigs dry completely before bringing inside.
2. Cut out small triangles from cardstock in the color of your choosing. We used gold glitter cardstock to make our triangles. These will be the tips of your arrows, so you may need to adjust the size of the triangles according to the size of your twigs.
3. Fold each triangle in half.
4. Glue one folded triangle to the bottom of one of your painted twigs, and then glue the matching triangle onto the other side of the bottom of your twig. This will form the point of your Cupid’s arrow.
5. Trim down a feather to a length that you like according to the size of your twig. You will put this feather at the top of your arrow.
6. Gently hot glue the feather in place at the top of your twig and in line with the point of your arrow.
7. Wrap a ribbon of your choosing around the bottom of the feather to cover it completely. Secure the ribbon in the back of the arrow with hot glue.
8. Display your finished arrows in a clear jar of vase.
