PEICD (PROJECTS EVEN I CAN DO): ARROW VALENTINE

This is a unique valentine you can put together with items you probably have lying around your house...and in your yard.

Supplies:
--A small stick (I found mine in our yard)
--Embroidery thread in your favorite colors
--Foil wrapped chocolate heart
--Felt

Step 1:  Cut out a piece of paper in a heart shape and tape it to the back of the foil wrapped candy.  This ensures you won't be eating any glue when your valentine takes it off the stick to enjoy. 
Step 2:  Hot glue the stick to the back of the chocolate heart. 
Step 3:  Next, wrap pieces of embroidery floss around the stick to add a bit of color.
Step 4:  Out of felt, cut a little feather shape and hot glue it onto the end of the stick.
Step 5:  Now just tie on a little note for your valentine.  I chose "Your aim is true...you got me right in the heart". 
Who will you be sending your arrow to?

    1. You're so sweet, CJ! When I was making this I was questioning how it would turn out, so I really appreciate your comment! Maybe just use a paper heart instead of chocolate then:)
