January 28, 2014
Go big or go home, right? This is a valentine DIY idea you can actually create year round. Whether you hang em' up on your wall or give them out with a sweet treat, I can assure you these will be a big hit. And for just a little over $1 an arrow, you can give your friend or lover a full quiver of copper beauties! For more DIY ideas, head over to my blog, In Honor of Design.
Wooden Rods
Hand Saw
Copper Finish Spray paint (I used Krylon)
Paper hearts (Found mine at Hobby Lobby) OR cut your own out of shiny poster board.
Plexi glass sheet (Craft store)
Exacto Knife and scissors


step-1Using a hand saw, cut down your rods to approx. 26 -28 in.

step-2Using a scissors, cut the end of the arrow shapes out of the plexi glass.
step-3Using an exacto knife, cut a slit in the center where the rod will slip through. Slash in the same spot on both sides. (Use with caution or the plexiglass will snap easily)
step-4Spray paint your hearts, ends, and rods with copper finish spray paint. Let Dry.
step-5Assemble and gift or hang! (You can use temporary hooks to hang them on a wall.)

Note: If you have any trouble with the plexi-glass, you can always use thick posterboard. As an added twist, write messages on your arrows or just leave them blank! As always, we would love to see your DIY's! Show us what you've whipped up!
