Cupid’s Bow and Arrow craft

I hosted a small Valentine’s Day party with some friends and their kids.  We had four kiddos under five, wow.  I knew right away with that crowd I wanted minimal candy and maximum crafty.  Everyone made a Cupid’s Bow and Arrow craft and I think they were a big hit!  Today I am sharing how to make a Valentine’s Day DIY Cupid’s Bow and Arrow craft with your kids!

DYD supply list
Paper Straws | Various colored felts (I used cream, white, gray, red and pink)
Leftover wrapping paper roll | String or Yarn | Hot Glue


Before the guests arrived, I pre-cut all the arrow heads and bottoms from the felt.  Make sure to fold the felt in half so you end up with perfectly matching double pieces.

We let the kids pick which colors they wanted and then it was a parent job to hot.glue the felt onto the straws.  We basically sandwiched the straw in-between the two felt pieces and glued away.

Next up the kiddos got to decorate the bow + arrow quiver.  I had precut two wrapping paper rolls into approximately 8″ lengths.  Each kiddo used colored pencils, crayons and washi tape to decorate to their little heart’s desire.  Some went minimalist (the boys) and some went all out (the girls).

A circular piece of felt was glued to the bottom of the quiver to keep all the arrows secured.

Here is my Kiddo #1’s handiwork in action!
