Follow your arrow wherever it points. There is quite a bit of meaning packed into that sentence.
For me, when the straight and narrow gets a little too straight, I like to put on my creative hat and get lost in what I love! So, most of the time, my arrow points to my work space…and to the beach!
I am sharing 8 fabulous DIY arrow projects with you today. And you have got to see how I styled my summer mantel.
My friend Ashley created these simple rustic wall arrows. They look great in the nursery don’t they? My youngest sister is expecting her first little munchkin and she is always looking for simple & easy ways to make an impact on her walls. Because ain’t nobody got time for complicated projects especially with a new baby in the house. Right?
If you’ve already started your family and are looking for some super cute arrows, these will record growth spurts and milestones. The kiddos will have such fun looking back at how they have grown. You have got to create one of these for your home. They grow so fast!
Another place my arrow has been pointing me towards lately is pallets. Although, my husband rolls his eyes at me when he is attempting to pull apart the pieces with a crowbar in one hand and hammer in the other. I bet he is thinking he would like to take a crowbar to my head for coming up with such a crazy idea! Do you know how many nails are in these things? A crazy amount. But, the wood looks so fabulous in projects like this DIY wood pallet arrow. And how about that gallery wall, huh?
If pulling apart pallet wood is just not your thing, I love this rustic word art. The easiest way to create an instant gallery wall! Just print and hang. And if you are a bit crafty, well…. give these old sign stencils a try. I am loving them so much. Shhh…I ordered every single one!!
Now, I gotta tell ya…I truly feel that everyone has a crafty side to them. Sometimes I hear ‘oh, I am just not the crafty type’. So, then I take the opportunity to share a fun little business that I love. One such business is the Rustic Nest who specializes in making things… like arrows! Oh, and if you need that little bit of inspiration to help you click that purchase button-check out this kitchen! The arrow looks so good there doesn’t it?
I feel I have to share one more place my arrow points me daily! It is a cherished place I go when I want inspiration, laughs, and cries. The posts that remind me that I can follow my arrow wherever it points…whether it be chalkboard walls, chevron chairs or white arrows!
