I have a special spot in my heart for arrows right now. I don’t know what happened, they just “shot” right into my heart. Ok, ok, I will cut it with the cheesy jokes. But seriously, I love arrows. That is why I was more than just a little excited when I saw the crazy cute arrow stencils in the new Handmade Charlotte stencil pack from Plaid. It was SO very easy to make too! To make one of your own you need…
*Handmade Charlotte Stencils
*Picture frame (mine is from Poppyseed Projects)
*Acrylic paint (mine is FolkArt)
Paint your picture frame the base color that you want it to be. Then put the stencil where you want your arrow to be on your picture frame.
Dip your stencil brush in the other color of paint and tap it off a little so that it is covered in paint, but not saturated in paint. Lightly tap the paint on the stencil.
Let the stencil dry a little bit and randomly stencil more arrows onto the picture frame. I like switching up the direction that the arrow is facing too.
Continue stenciling arrows until you feel like you have enough arrows for the look that you are going for.
Let the paint dry. Put your favorite photo or printable in the picture frame and enjoy! I couldn’t be happier with how it all turned out! Any guesses where this baby (literally, that is my baby) is going up? Let me give you a hint. I am switching around some decor and making something that rhymes with mallory call! Yep, you guessed it! I am making a gallery wall you had better be excited about!
