Cupid’s Arrow

Cupid's Arrow #Valentine Wreath via Nest of Posies

I don’t ever want to fool you all.

My life isn’t full of pink, glitter & gold.

It’s more like glittered dust bunnies, dated gold light switches from the 80’s & white socks that are now tinted pink because I have zero laundry skills.

But just to be clear…I love a pink sequins & gold combo.

It has to be one of my faves.

Pink Sequins Trim via Nest of Posies

So when Simplicity sent me this delicious strand of stretch PINK sequin trim, I squealed just a little.

After all, pink is my signature color.

Remember I have pink tinted socks.

I already knew the perfect thing to add to the pink sequins trim.

Gold dipped feathers with glitter.  Insert some more squeals.

Because you know, Valentine’s Day is approaching & Mr. Cupid is working full time…

I thought maybe he would like to have a gold painted arrow along with some gold tipped feathers with glitter.

Because you know, who wouldn’t like to be struck with gold tipped arrows for Valentine’s Day?

I know, I wouldn’t mind.

Isn’t it gorgeous, if I do say so myself?

Here’s how I made it:

Make a Cupid's Arrow Wreath via Nest of Posies

Along with the stretch sequins trim from Simplicity, I used my husband’s drill & matched up the width of a wooden dowel to a drill bit & drilled 2 holes in my heart wreath form.   Then I sat & watched tv while I hot glued the sequins to the wreath.  ( Nothing like some Lifetime love drama TV, while you’re doing a Vday project ;))  I also used some metallic gold craft paint for the wooden dowel & recycled cardboard that I cut to make the point & ends of the arrow & attached those with hot glue to the dowel.

I upcycled a gift bag & made a paper medallion & used gold stickers for lucky number 14.

Oh Valentine’s Day…how I love you so.

It’s a celebration of all things pink, sequins, glitter & gold…with a lots of chocolate sprinkles added on top!

    I love this so much. At first I thought you did it with individual sequins, but that would take days to do. This gives me a lot of inspiration. Thanks for sharing it with us!

    Love your blog, just found via Pintrest! I wonder if you would mind answering a few questions about this project?
    How wide is the trim, I can’t find it on the Simplicity site ? Also what size is your wreath form.
    Thanks for sharing your wonderful creativity !

    I’m here from Tatertots & Jello–LOVE your wreath! I can’t get enough of pink & gold either. How did you make the gold feathers?

    SOOOO adorable! Can I ask, how hard was it wrapping that sequins around the heart? Any suggestions for wrapping it around the pointed parts? Sometimes it’s hard to keep it from puckering!

    Thanks! :)

    I LOVE this!! Would you be willing to make one for me???? Seriously – I’m not crafty at all (that’s why I love Etsy – I pay for others to do it!) Let me know :) PS When will your store be back up?
