Happy Valentine’s Day! I thought I’d bring back a tutorial from last year to honor this little day of LOVE. It’s something simple you can use that says Happy Valentine’s Day in a subdue but festive way AND you can even use it year round! Here is a DIY Arrow Art tutorial that you can make today, or any day.
DIY Arrow Art
I decided to mount my arrows on a piece of pallet boards that I painted white. It gave them a good background and made them pop!
This Valentine’s Day display in my home is all about my love for my family. I included our last initial along with a cute printable on the definitely of family (download it here for free)
You can be so creative with these arrows, you can completely customize them to be your own. Use tons of color, keep them neutral like me or make them in red and white for Valentine’s Day!
The other thing I love about this sign is that it could also work year round!
Here are a few tips on how I made my arrows.
Leather Scraps (You can buy a whole bag of scraps for way cheaper than buying a large piece at a fabric store)
How To Make Rustic Arrows
Whenever I’m getting ready to start a new project, I head to my craft are and bring out everything I think I MIGHT want to use. I’m such a ‘go with the flow’ type of creative. I never really know what I what to do until my hands start working.
I love love this paper from the Jen Hadfield line! All of the paper patterns are perfect for this project. And they are double sided too!
I gave the dowels a really rustic finish with gray acrylic paint. I used a dry brush technique so they looked worn. To finish off the piece, I attached them to a pre-made pallet I picked up at Michaels and painted white
I also added “Love you More” to the bottom using a stencil and paint.
I love how this turned out and I think it might be staying up for a while!
