DIY Jet Pack for Valentine's Day

| By Suzie Boluarte | Party Crafts and DIY Comments

One of my favorite quotes for my 3 year old son is "I love you to the moon and back." It just makes sense since he's a space enthusiast and wants to be an astronaut when he grows up. So for Valentine's Day I made this fun Jet Pack for him...and me! I think this would make the perfect prop for a sweet photo shoot.

2. Pierce a hole in the middle of both cups and insert twine through (about 14") and seal the top with Duct Tape.

3. Glue your hearts together to make 3 on each side. Hot glue your cups to the bottom of your jet pack (I used Duct Tape as well).
