DIY easy arrow art

I’m so happy to show you my DIY easy arrow art ! 

DIY easy arrow art.jpg featureFor those of you following along, you know that I have many addictions loves. Coffee…Metallic Markers….Stencils…..and I fall in love so easily, it’s scary! My latest are arrows! Yes. Arrows! How great are arrows!? Don’t get me started, but I love all this tribal~style decor lately or for a while now, and it’s so easy to make as well!

So the other day I was so in the mood for making some arrows and  the best part about that is,  that I used what I had at home! Believe me when I say that this is the easiest and cutest arrow art you can make…just sayin’. 

I started and couldn’t stop. Like that hasn’t happened before…but really, these were made in an afternoon, they were that easy. 

Ok so here we go:

I used:

~ canvases ( I re~used old canvases, painted them over with white paint, you can see a little bit of the old background shining through, but I like that! )

~ scrap booking cardstock and different kinds of paper ( I used pinkish tones and patterns and golden metallic ones)

~ washi tape

~ kebab sticks

~ thin golden wire 

~ glue & scissors

First thing I did, was cut out lots of little triangles in different, but similar looking card stock. I arranged them on the top and bottom of the canvas in arrow style, then glued them on. I then cut out leaf shapes and the end part of the arrow for the tale. I cut the leafs just a little bit on both sides, so they’d look like feathers. I grabbed a kebab stick and twisted golden wire around it. This would be for the big arrow in the middle of the canvas. I arranged it on the canvas with a big triangle for the front,  the previously cut out “feathers” and “tale” of the arrow and then glued everything on. 

On the picture below, you can see the tale of another arrow. This one is made with washi tape and another “feather” ,like the ones I described above. I also used a kebab stick with golden wire and a triangle for the front part of the arrow.

I made three different canvases, but using the same material, just mixing up the style a bit.

    I love that! It is so you, I really love the textures and patterns used in this artwork. It will look great in your home all year round. And many of us could add this into our interior design. I really like the kabob sticks wrapped in wire it gives so much depth and interest do the artwork! It’s not only pretty it’s lots of fun and I’m sure the girls absolutely love it.

    It’s so great to see a sideways approach to a valentines craft. Cupid’s arrows aren’t exactly a new idea but the way you’ve approached it most certainly is! Love it.
