A bow and arrow of Cupid on Valentine's Day with your own hands
Valentine's Day will lose its meaning without an important character - Cupid, or Cupid. Who, if not him, helps the halves of the heart to find each other and to know the joy of all-consuming love? And the little angel copes with this task with the help of indispensable attributes - a bow with magic arrows. Each child will be happy to become the owner of these magical objects, and, undoubtedly, he will experience even more joy if he makes Cupid's bow and arrows.
Bow and arrows of Cupid on Valentine's Day with your own hands
In order to make a bow and arrows of Cupid with your own hands, you will need to prepare in advance:
several straws A cocktail or any otherthick enough sticks;
colored cardboard (or foamboard);
stationery or polymer glue;
silver or golden glitter;
jar cylindrical shape (you can take a cardboard cylinder from paper towels);
colored paper, self-adhesive film or fabric;
First of all, let's take care of the “ammunition”. We will turn each wand into an arrow.
For this, if the wand does not fit us in color, we paste it with self-adhesive film or colored paper. You can use colored sticky tape.
Now cut the tips and the tail from the cardboard.
Cut the tips and the tail
We insert them into the sticks, incised on both sides with a clerical knife. If you use chopsticks that are difficult to cut into two pieces, simply glue the tips.
Insert the tip into the notch
Insert the plumage
We cut the plumage along the edge,to give it a resemblance to real feathers.
Decorate the arrows with sparkles, sticking them on ordinary stationery glue.
We decorate the feathering with sequins
We sprinkle the tip with sequins especially abundantly so that it glitters in sunlight.
