Valentine's Day Blog Hop Budget CraftsThank you for joining me on the Valentine’s Day Blog Hop! I’ve joined with 13 other talented bloggers to share Valentine’s Day crafts on a budget. Each blogger was given a budget of no more than $10 and challenged to create a Valentine’s Day craft using items from the dollar store or dollar section of their local stores. If you have budget Valentine’s Day crafts to share, please add it to the link-up at the bottom of this post so it can be seen on all of our blogs!

Today, I’m kicking off the Valentine’s Day Blog Hop with a Valentine’s Day Arrow Clips tutorial that was inspired by clips found at Target. I knew the Target clips would be easy to recreate with supplies found at the Dollar Tree store, so that’s what I did! The Target clips were $3 for 3 clips vs. $4 for 12 DIY dollar store clips – score!

  • Use a scissor and make three diagonal cuts in the large foam heart. 
  • Angle the scissor and cut small triangle slivers out of the foam heart.  
  • Optional – glue a thumb tack to the upper back of the clothespin to create a bulletin board clip and add to the inside of a gift bag.
