Cupid's quiver is full 
of the most adorable
and useful
little arrows....

Luckily, you can also get the instructions for the 

Clothespin Love Arrow Tutorial

right now, too.

Here's how you do it:

Get some plain clothespins and...

I love rubber stamps.
These little alphabet sets
were just a dollar!

Use some good,
permanent ink so the
sentiment won't smear.

Yarn or floss, feathers, jewels and glue
will round out your supply list.

Simply stamp a sentiment on one end
of the clothespin...

wrap yarn or floss around the other end
and glue in place.

Dip the pointy tip of the feather in glue
and poke it down behind the yarn.

Add a few jewels.

Glue a triangle arrow shape to the
upper inside mouth
of the clothespin.
You can use card stock, wood, or burlap
glued to card stock.... 
use your imagination.
