How do I make a Paper Bow and Arrow craft?
Make a Valentine’s Cupid Arrow-
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.
Make a Cupid Quiver-
Next up the kids got to decorate the bow + arrow Quiver. I had precut two wrapping paper rolls into approximately 8″ lengths. You could also use paper towel rolls for this part.
Each kiddo used colored pencils, crayons, stickers and washi tape to decorate to their little heart’s desire.
Some went minimalist (the boys) and some went all out (the girls), but it was adorable to see everyone’s little hands so busy working on their valentine craft project!
Lastly, we hot glued a circular piece of felt to the bottom of the quiver to keep all the arrows secured inside.
