driftwood arrows


Arrows are all the rage these days and I must say that I'm obsessed! I am also obsessed with driftwood! Since I live across the street from a beach covered in an endless supply of driftwood, I thought it would be fun to create my own whimsical arrows from driftwood.


I selected my driftwood and painted striped of color with acrylic paint.


Once the paint was dry I used a variety of different supplies to add tiny details. 


I made the arrow head from thin metal and then added paper doilies to the other end.


I created a variety of colors and sizes.


Last, I wrapped a wire around each arrow to form a hook and hung them on the wall!
