Arrows Made from Wooden Spoons | Goodwill Project #26



“I threw it at him so that he would fall in love.” – C's response after throwing his arrow at N.
 
Prior to making our arrows we did some wikapedia-ing to find out why arrows are used for Valentine’s day. Basically Cupid is the God of desire, erotic love, attraction and affection. His source of power is the bow and arrow, and anyone who is shot by his arrow is filled with uncontrollable desire.
 
I gave C the G-rated version which was Cupid shoots people with his arrow and they fall in love.
So he went and threw it at his 3 year old brother.

So literal.
 
So thoughtful.

Thankfully it was just made of a wooden spoon, so he’s fine. And to my knowledge he did not fall in love.



 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
