Directions for Walll Arrows

1) Wrap the painter’s tape around the wood dowels in a few different spots to create the color block style
2) Paint the dowels whatever colors you like; allow to dry
3) If you can’t find pre-cut hearts, you can make your own by cutting them out with the foam sheets

4) To make the end of the of the arrow, cut the sheet so that it is a rectangle; fold it in half lengthwise and cut the top and bottom on an angle to create the overall shape; then, while still folded, cut slits into the foam sheets to create a fringed look; please see pictures below for an example!

5) Use a hot glue gun to attach the foam to the wood dowels
6) Hang them on the wall! I simply placed these ones on small nails that I hammered into the wall; it helps to use a level to make sure they are even

Directions fro Arrow Heart Valentines

1) Cut the foam sheet into a small rectangle
2) Fold it in half lengthwise
3) Cut the two ends on an angle to create the overall shape, then while it is still folded, cut slits into the the foam sheets to create a fringed look
4) Attach these to the pencil with a hot glue gun, or tape if using candy
5) Fold a piece of paper in half and draw a heart so that one side of the heart is on the fold; this way the heart will be able to open like a book
6) Cut out the heart shape, making sure not to cut the folded area
7) Use an X-Acto knife to cut to slits into the the heart so that the "arrow" pencil or candy can be placed in the two slits to stay in place and look as though it is going through the heart.
OR
Create the arrows in the same way as the Kabobs, only using lollipop sticks, and attaching them to cute little bags.

This "valentine" that can be passed out at school/work.
