The 5 Minute Quiver Tutorial- No Sew, Even!

Soooo… Do you have kids? Do they ask you to make them all sorts of things? Mine does. The other day he started making arrows out of straws so that he can shoot them in the house. But if you have a bunch of arrows, you need something to carry them in. Right?

So a quiver it is! OK, yes, I had to google it. We kept calling it an arrow holder, but I knew it had a name. A quiver is an arrow holder!

Honestly, I put him off for a little while. I wasn’t exactly sure how to do it….

Then I was looking for something and found this strap I salvaged from a bag headed to Goodwill. I knew it would come in handy for something! Boy was I right!

As soon as I found the strap, I knew exactly how to make a quiver! Easy Peasy!

I used black felt, a little bit of ribbon, hot glue and scissors. If you don’t have a strap, you could also use a long piece of ribbon or webbing instead of the little pieces of ribbon and the strap.

First cut out your pieces.

Then glue the little pieces of ribbon to the one of the long sides. (or your long piece of ribbon.)

Then hot glue along the long edge.

And hot glue along the bottom.

And yep, add the strap and you’re done! Seriously, 5 minutes.

So next time your adorable little kid asks for a quiver (or the more kid friendly term, an arrow holder.) you can say, ‘YOU BET.’  And if you whip it up right away, the kiddo will think you are a super hero!

  1. Sweet little post…sweet little guy!

  2. Fun post and brought back memories. I’ve made quivers myself. However, when i made mine it had to be historically accurate! My then 7 year old loved anything about ancient history. He’d dive into a historical book with pictures and want me to make one “like that”. So much fun to indulge little ones with enthusiasm on a topic.

    • This one is SO NOT historically correct! That would be fun though! It is so much fun to indulge the imagination. The kiddo loves video games, so anything to get his mind off the games and back to using his imagination! I’ll jump!
