DIY Valentine's Day Gift: Cupid's Arrows Date Night Ideas

Rather than a typical coupon book or standard flowers and chocolate, up the romance factor with these adorable mini date arrows. This DIY is sure to be a hit with your love on Valentine's Day! 

We combined the idea of the dates in a jar with love coupons for this sweet DIY gift idea. Present your Date Arrows in a jar with chocolates, or with some flowers and box of Fannie May chocolate covered strawberries, and you’ve got a unique and thoughtful gift.

  • • Lollipop sticks
  • • Feathers
  • • Glitter cardstock
  • • Glue dots
  • • Ribbon
  • • Coordinating card stock
  • • Needle and thread

Step 1: Cut out hearts from the glitter cardstock. Attach with glue dots to the end of your lollipop sticks.

Step 2: Using glue dots, attach several feathers to the end of your lollipop stick. Wrap with ribbon or thin strip of card stock to help hold it.

Step 3: Write date ideas or “love coupon” ideas on strips of card stock (We used these ideas: Picnic in the park, 30 minute massage, breakfast in bed, movie night: you pick, and ice cream date)

Step 4: With a needle and thread, poke a hole in the cardstock date ideas and tie onto your arrows.

Step 5: Display in a jar with some candy!
