DIY Valentine's Day Arrows

     When I saw these adorable Valentine's Day arrows on Pinterest, I knew I had to recreate them!  I couldn't be more in love with this DIY.  It is an easy, adorable, and inexpensive craft.  I plan on making more and keeping them out all year long! 

You will need....

- Scrapbook Paper

- Twigs {or you could use wood dowels}

- Hot Glue Gun

- Scissors

- String or Twine

Step 1:

 You don't have to use twigs, but I really liked the rustic and natural look it gave.  For the arrow heads and fletching, I used scrapbook paper.  They don't have to be a certain size.

Step 2:

Next, you want to hot glue the arrow heads at one end of the stick and the fletching on the other end.  

Step 3:

Cut little slits along the outside edge at an angle.

Step 4:

Cut out some leaf pieces out of scrapbook paper.  Hot glue them to the end of the arrow {picture below}  Lastly, for the finishing touch, tie some string or twine around the fletching/leaf pieces.

There you have it!  A super simple Valentine's Day DIY!  You can put them in a vase, criss cross a few to make a 3D picture, or use them as Valentine's.  

Until next time,

Xoxo, Natalie
