My Sweet Baby Cupid



I really wanted to try this when I saw it on Jessica's site. I am so glad I did! I think Daniel came out adorable! It was super easy and now I have a special picture for Valentines Day.
The only part that was a little difficult was trying to get him to sit still.



Jessica has a great tutorial on how to make cupid's wings on her site. I did mine a little different so I thought I'd share how I did it.

Here's what you'll need:
1. White foam board
2. 1 bag of feathers
3. Adhesive
4. white ribbon 

First I had an old white foam board that the kids hadn't used from one of their school projects. I cut it in a half moon shape. Then I spayed adhesive a little at a time and added the feathers.
I waited for them to dry and poked holes on the board to attach the ribbon for the arms. 
I didn't take any step by step photos because I wasn't sure how well it would come out.
I did however take a lot of pictures of my little cupid! 





I also had a red pillow and some red fabric for a background. You could use a red blanket or sheet for a background.  I just used what I had on hand. I am so happy and thankful that Jessica was so nice to share her baby cupid idea. Please go check out her site.

I'll also be linking for the first time to The Simple Things.
