After doing some wikapedia-ing to find out why arrows are used for Valentine’s Day we set out to make our own out of thrifted wooden spoons.
Here’s how we did it:
1 – Bought 2 wooden spoons at Goodwill Twinsburg for a mere 16 cents each!
2 – Pulled out some craft supplies like felt, feathers, yarn and glitter.
3 – Glued 3-6 feathers to the top side of the spoon.
4 – Cut out two felt triangles to use as the arrow tip.
5 – Wrapped multiple pieces of colored yarn around the handle and secured in place with glue.
6 – Glued the 2 triangle felt pieces together, leaving a small opening to slide about an inch of the handle inside. Secured with more glue.
7 – Decorated with gold glitter!
If you don’t have these craft supplies on hand, here are a few alternatives:
Felt // Construction Paper // Cardboard
Yarn // Paint // Ribbon // Washi Tape
Feathers // Felt // Tissue Paper
