Introduction: Decorative Arrows
This DIY is inspired by Ornamental Arrows. It’s super easy and fast (gorgeous, too), thus will be great for those who want to decorate their home but are short on time.
Things you’ll need:
- Bamboo skewers
- Coloured paper
- Glue (I used UHU)
- Embroidery strings
- Newspaper (to keep your table free from glue)
Step 1: Draw a Triangle But With a Blunt Head on the Paper
Step 2: Fold Them
Step 3: Cut the Triangle Out
Step 4: Cut Out Some Leave-shaped Paper
Remember to cut out some sort of ‘stem’ at the end of the leaves so that you can wrap and stick them onto the bamboo skewers with ease.
Step 5: Fold Them in Half
Step 6: Cut the Edge to Mimic Feathers
Step 7: You Can Also Do Something Like This...
Step 8: Cut Out Some Triangles
Remember to cut the ‘stems’ but not a sharp tip
Step 9: Cut Another Smaller Triangle at the End
Step 10: Fold Them in Half and Cut the Edges
Just like in step 5 and 6
Step 11: Glue the Triangle to the Tip of the Bamboo Skewer
Step 12: Glue the Feathers to the End of the Bamboo Skewer
Cut the skewer if it’s too long
Step 13: Use the Embroidery String to Wrap Around the Skewer and the Feathers
Step 14: Tie Several Knots and Glue It Down
Step 15: And You’re Done!
