Hello SNAP Friends! Ariean again from OneKriegerChick. Have you been bitten by the Valentine’s Love Bug? I sure have, but living in a house of boys…It’s more like being shot with one of Cupid’s arrows!
- 3 long paint stir sticks used for 5 gallon pails of paint. They are longer, thicker and sturdier than the small paint stir sticks.
- wood glue or other preferred adhesive
- Saw for cutting
I decided one was not enough, so I made three. Set aside three paint sticks to serve as the base.
To create the points of the arrows and the fletching (wings at the back), measure and mark 3 sets of 6 parallelograms (slanted rectangles). I numbered mine too, but you don’t have to. It just helped me remember which pieces matched up.
Now for painting…I chose to paint mine a chalky antique white so I can use them all year in my decorating, but they would be fun in any color with any distressing technique.
They should dry pretty quickly. Once they are dry, it’s time to glue the pieces together. Starting with either end, apply a small amount of wood glue to the base and press 2 small pieces together. Continue with each piece. Once the glue dries, they are ready for display… I paired one with my Pottery Barn Inspired Yarn Heart…
And really loved how they looked in my bathroom…This may be where they end up as a constant reminder to Always Look Up…
