Welcome to Party Junk 265 – DIY arrows for home decor

Every Friday, 7 PM through Sunday 11 PM Pacific

Greetings and a happy weekend to you! 

Arrows felt like a cool topic right before Valentine’s Day. They are so big in home decor right now, so here’s a little collection of salvaged junk arrows that any junker would love to have.

But first… here’s one I made that I haven’t even published yet! It was meant for Christmas but I never did find a useful way to utilize it quite yet… so here’s how far I got…

How to make a reclaimed wood arrow / with just scraps of wood and glue! So easy.

Dig through your wood scraps. Then chop off the tip of a plank, picket style. 

Cut down chunks of random wood.

Dry fit on the arrow.

… and you are done!

Add some wall hooks, and you have a towel hanger, a place for keys, anything really. 

What would you use it for? Maybe I’ll do that… 🙂

Here are a few others around blog town…

  1. I’m still working on my Heap of Change Challenge. My workshop has made an amazing transformation thanks to you and I still have a couple of projects to go. Love seeing my OPEN sign make an appearance today, that was a surprise. Have a great weekend.

  2. Love arrows! I have a lighted (lit ?) one poiinting toward my front door. My question is what kind of glue is in your hot glue gun and what type of gun? It looks more heavy duty than a regular crafting glue gun. Keep the great ideas coming girl. We are kindred spirits! There should be a convention or something for playing with junk!

  3. Arrows are all the rage now, too, aren’t they? I see them everywhere…and it’s no wonder because they are pretty darned cool! I’m going to have to try making one to put in my little front porch…it could use some dressing up after Xmas. Happily, there is lots of scrap wood out in the shed! 🙂
