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.
I’m loving it… it’s a great combo of too things I love arrows and burlap!
