Arrows are a hot decorating trend right now, so I decided to do like the rest and make a few repurposed pallet wood arrows to sell in my shop. I had left over pallet wood from making the repurposed snow flakes in the winter, so this is the wood that I used for the arrows.
I made a few differnet sizes, stained them and dry brushed a few too.
I thought it would be easier if I just posted the cut sizes on my photo instead of trying to explain each cut. This is the larger size arrow that I made and for a smaller one I just decreased the sizes on each cut. I guess you can say I “eye-balled it”
The chevron style arows I cut 2 pallet boards with 45 degree angles and used different directions on my cuts, this way the same faded color tone would be on the same side up. You don’t have to do this, except you would need to flip the board over when assemblying if you cut all in the same direction.
Here are a few shots of the arrows on display at the store.
They sold quickly, so now I need to make a few more. This is a simple DIY project that you can do with any wood scraps laying around in your garage. If you missed my post a few weeks back, you can read about how I repurposed the old paint ladder into a decorative shelf.
