DIY Wood Scrap Arrow
I have a quick and easy project for you today! I have so been loving the arrow craze in home decor. It’s just so versatile and goes with just about any style. I have been wanting some for myself for a while, and finally just decided to get to it.
I went out to my garage to see what I could find in the form of wood that would work and this is what I ended up with.
Yes, an old fence post we had lying around and some paint stir sticks. (why do they give you so many??)
I cut the post to the length that I wanted and then I gave it a white-wash effect by going over the piece with an almost dry paint brush.
Then I determined the sizes I needed for the tip and the back of the arrow, and cut those from the stir sticks using my miter box.
(I used three sizes to create the look that I made – mine were 5″, 4″, and 3″).
These pieces got a solid coat of the same white paint I used on the base.
Next I found the center of the base piece.
Then I assembled the tip and the back of the arrow.
I loved how it looked, but I really wanted to add a little something to it so….
I reached for my beloved Rub’NBuff to accent the edges of the tip and back of the arrow.
Just the right detail that it needed!!
Free people – decor for free is the best way to go in my book :).
I have special plans for this little guy that I will share with you soon. For now I’m off to do some summer!!
