I’ve been envying people throughout Pinterest with their amazing and adorable wooden arrows that hang so proudly on their walls! Why do they get wooden arrows and I don’t? I saw one at Target and my husband put his foot down. “Why do we need that?” He asked. Needless to say that we didn’t get the arrow. And I am so happy that my stingy husband put his foot down…who are we kidding…he can’t put his foot down to me. I’m too cute 😉 But he did strongly discourage it and I am glad he did! I love mine WAY more than the one I found at Target. That’s not bashing Target in any way. I LOVE Target. If my family didn’t need to eat I would spend all of my money there, but I like the size of my arrow, the uniqueness and the fact that I built it with my two hands!
When we came home from Target I immediately drew up some plans as to how I would get my wooden arrow!
I had three extra plywood in my backyard that I was able to use as my arrow.
I used a compound miter saw to cut my pieces.
Here are the dimensions that I chose, but of course you may choose different sizes depending on how big you would like to make your arrrow.
I then the longest board against the wall and leveled it to make sure that my arrow wouldn’t be all crooked and such.
I then drilled a hole through on of the “wings” through the long board and into the wall. I did this with both wings and then the point of the arrow.
This is what it looks like on my wall! I used a big picture so you could see exactly where I placed the screws 🙂
I really hope that this inspired you to make a wood arrow for your wall (if that’s what you want of course). If you have a cute wood arrow example I would LOVE to see it!
If I couldn’t figure out how to make one I would have bought this one! I sure do love the color of the one I found on Amazon!
