DIY Burlap Arrow for our Gallery Wall

Sharing is caring!

Happy Easter Friends!  This week I made a fun DIY Burlap Arrow for our family room.  I’m working on creating a gallery wall and I thought I’d create a fun arrow… but to mix it up I decided to make it a burlap arrow.

This project is super easy and didn’t cost a lot either.  I decided to use foam board as the base of the arrow.  I printed out an arrow, that I created in photoshop, and traced over it with a pen.  That created an indentation on the foam board making it easy to cut with sharp blade.

I used modge podge to stick the burlap to the foam board.  I ironed a piece of burlap, a little bigger than the arrow, and placed it on top of the foam board arrow that was covered with a thin layer of modge podge.

I let it dry for about 10 minutes then flipped it over.  I cut around the arrow, leaving about 1 1/2 – 2 inches of overhang.

Then I wrapped around the overhang to the back of the arrow and used a hot glue gun to adhere the overhang burlap to the back.

I added some playful thumb tacks around the boarder.
