I was walking through Macy’s yesterday and their valentine campaign ads stuck out at me. I know it sounds crazy, but I never know when inspiration is going to hit! 🙂 The tag line was “follow your heart.” Instantly I thought of following…what do you follow? Arrows that point you in the right direction! An idea was born. So, there you have it. A little bit about how I am struck by inspiration every now and then. 🙂 These would be so cute not only for Valentine’s Day, but a Girl Scout bridging ceremony, a camping or glamping party, you name it…so many fun uses!
Here’s what you’ll need:
Felt (3 colors of your choosing)
Twigs (send the kiddos out to gather these up from around the neighborhood)
I simply cut two triangles for the tip and glued them together at one end of the twig.
Then, I cut two v-like shapes that I could over-lap and cut some fringe on to make the vanes. This is totally free-form. Whatever looks good to you works. 🙂
Once you’ve glued your pieces to the twig, you can glue the finished arrows to clothespins to turn them into clips. They look super cute on favor bags! 😉
