"Play "Cupid" with your kiddos and whip up a batch of Paper Straw Valentine Darts, using items you probably already have around the house! All you need for this fun craft idea is cardstock, a heart paper punch, paper straws, glue dots (or a glue stick), tape, and your imagination! This craft is a cute way to make either DIY valentines, or DIY Valentine's Day decor. You could totally turn this into a fun DIY Valentine's Day garland!"

Materials List

  • Paper Straws
  • Glue
  • Glue Dots
  • Tape
  • Cardstock
  • Heart-Shaped Paper Hole Punch


  1. After gathering supplies, punch out 4 hearts. You will need 4 hearts/straw. Fold 3 of the hearts in half.

  2. Cut a slit in 1 end of the straw. Slide the unfolded heart into it. This is the arrowhead. If you wish, secure a piece of tape over both sides of the heart, attaching it to the straw.

  3. Glue the 3 folded hearts together so they make 1 large 3D heart. Cut 3 slits in the other end of the straw, then slide the large 3D heart into it. This is the fletching of your dart. If you desire, press 3 small pieces of tape over the straw, attaching the paper to it more securely.
