the make list: vintage inspired arrow decor

So I have this HUGE folder of bookmarks full of things I want to make. I'm talking like 150+ projects, and I add new ones pretty much every day. Every time I look at it I feel a little lazy... These links have been accumulating for over a year, and I haven't actually completed a single project.



Thats about to change, though. I have decided to try to tackle at least one of these projects a week. I'll make them, and then leave pictures and thoughts here... along with a link to the inspiration/tutorial of course!





For my first "make list" project I decided to make arrows inspired by this tutorial by Danielle Thompson.



I had to include one of her photos. They are simply gorgeous.


I'm very satisfied with the way my arrows came out.



I only used acrylic paint, and my feathers were made out of paper.  I used some metallic gold acrylic to add some fun details (best shown by the photo at the top). It took about three hours.


If you want some arrows without all the hassle, Sweetshorn on esty sells some gorgeous vintage sets.




I hope your day is right on target!


(get it? target? arrows? I'm so punny!)
