Cupid’s Arrow Non Candy Valentine

This sweet homemade Non-candy Valentine is not only adorable but it is a thrifty craft for you to do with your kids. I have also included   a simple printable tag for you to add to your Valentine’s to personalize them for friends. These are perfect for making a couple dozen to take to school for the Valentine’s exchange.  All the items can be picked up at your local Dollar Tree, or may very well already be in your craft supplies

  • This looks like such a fun idea and not that the kids may enjoy doing. It's also cheap and costs less than flowers.
  • This is cute!!... You can even buy different pencils to use, maybe pink, red, or white instead of using the generic yellow pencils. Thank you for sharing this great DIY Valentine's Day craft.
