Boho Bow and Arrows

My dining room has a Farmhouse/Boho/Rustic vibe going on so I wanted my Valentine décor and mantle to go along  with that.  I knew I wanted to make a bow and after browsing Pinterest there wasn't anything that didn't require a bowed branch or pvc pipe.  If we weren't buried in snow here in Utah I would have loved to find a curved branch, but I went for the next best thing. 

You know the rack of inexpensive toys you can find at the Grocery store or gas station.  I know these toys all too well.  My 4 year old loves these toys and they are a good bribe for being good while grocery shopping.  I knew we  had a couple of  bow and arrow sets so I went digging through toys until I found one.  They are only $2.99 new.

After a few coats of gold spray paint...

Gold spray paint never disappoints! Now for the arrows.  I knew I wanted to use sticks to give the Rustic look so I cut a few from some bushes in my front yard. 

-Sticks/twigs

-Felt/ fabric

-Twine/string

-Feathers

-Glue gun

-Scissors

For the tips I cut a few triangles and hearts. 2 per arrow.  Hot glue them to the tip with the stick in the middle of felt.  On the other end glue feathers and wrap with twine.  For the felt feathers I cut 2 rectangles, glued them closed on the end of the stick then cut into feather shape and cut slits.

I am  very busy just like many of you, so I'm all about  fast and easy projects that make a big impact.   This was just that!  Now run to the nearest Dollar store or gas station and find yourself a bow!  If you make this quick DIY please share and tag us!

Were back with a new look!

Hello....It's been a while, but we are excited to be back with a new website.  Our goal is to share on our Blog some of our personal DIY projects, and home décor.  As many of you know we are always on the go and changing up our homes with new, old, thrifted,  and salvaged junk. We will have lots of fun things to share with Mandy just moving into a historic red brick home trying to make it her own, and Elkee just purchasing her first Fixer Upper. Follow along!
