Happy Monday Everybody!
I am having this love affair with arrows lately and I finally talked my hubby into helping me make some for us.
This is what we came up with!
These are definitely not going to be the only ones in our home.
I am thinking some for our little boys room, maybe one painted a yellow and the other left the natural distressed wood. I don’t know we will see.
First we dismantled a pallet. (Which is super hard unless you have a sawzall! Its possible without one, but it takes some muscle)
Then we cut 2 boards 24 inches long.
Now the pink arrows point is 9 inches wide cut at a 45 degree angle and 7 inched long the first tip is 4 inches long, just to give you an idea.
Each tail on the pink arrow is 6 inches long cut at a 45 degree angle.
Each of the white arrows tail pieces are 2 and 1/4 inches wide cut at 45 degree angle.
And I sketched the tip of the arrow to what I thought looked good and cut it out with a jig saw.
The rest of the wood was cut with a chop saw.
I then glued all the pallet pieces together with some gorilla glue and let it sit for 4 hours. ( I hate waiting!)
I painted the pink one with some pink craft paint I had on hand and the white one I used some Modge Podge and glued some vintage wallpaper on to it. (Here is some I found that would be so cute!) I really loved the way the natural wood looked too, but I had this idea in my mind and I went with that first. The next one I do I will just leave alone.
Then I attached some sawtooth brackets on the back to hang them on the wall.
My hubby was skeptical at first but I think he likes the way they turned out, too. He even likes the pink! 🙂
