Local dollar stores are a source where you could get these supplies and more. You will find that for just a few dollars you can get everything you need to craft multiple arrows. When picking out supplies, feel free to mix and match colors as you wish. Not all children may want pink and red color combos, they may wish for blues, greens, oranges, etc. If so, just go with it and allow them to get creative with the activity.

1. Begin by pressing your cupcake cup in half. It will take on a half moon shape. If you wish to layer several cups together, that is fine too. It will allow your “end feather” to look more full.
2. Poke a hold in the center of the cupcake cup and run the pipe cleaner through it. Take the cup down to the end. Gently bend the end in to hold the cup in place.
3. Use your scissors to trim the edge of the cupcake cup. You want to give it a ruffled look so it looks like feathers.
4. Bend a small segment of pipe cleaner into a triangle. This will go on the end of your pipe cleaner. Attach the triangle to the end of the pipe cleaner and bend so it stays in place.
Your cupcake cup Cupid’s arrow is now complete.
