Shot through the heart… OK, I won’t show my age and start singing Bon Jovi. That’s a good song, though. And this Cupid’s Arrow Heart Craft is shot through the heart and gives love a good name.
This Cupid’s Arrow Heart Craft is a really cute heart craft, perfect for the one who has your heart this Valentine’s Day. Or, you know, just because. We made ours with paper straws, but replacing the straws with pencil would be a cute and easy idea, too.

For our Cupid’s Arrow Heart Craft you will need red cardstock, paper straws, a hole punch, a glue stick, and scissors.
Cupid’s Arrow Heart Craft
- Red cardstock
- Paper straws
- Hole punch
- Glue stick
Begin by folding a sheet of red cardstock in half and cutting out a heart shape.
Make sure the width of the straw is smaller than the straw. You’ll need the straw to go through the heart with plenty of bare straw left on both ends.
Now, punch a hole on both sides of the heart.
Thread the straw through the holes.
Cut 3 triangles from the same red cardstock. Glue one to the top straw tip.
Cut an inner triangle shape from the other 2 triangles. Glue those to the other end of the straw.
So quick and easy, you could make a bunch in a short amount of time. It’s simple to make these into cards, too, just write from: and to: on the front of the heart. Then, especially if you use a pencil instead, it makes a great classroom Valentine gift.
