It was love at first sight when these handcrafted arrows came across our desk. Each arrow is lovingly hand-notched, painted, metal-tipped, and detailed with feathers, carrying with it a decidedly unique character. We immediately knew we not only had to sell them but also had to share a few tips on how to decorate with them!
As a Centerpiece
While we are always a fan of fresh flowers on the table, for a fresh take on the classic centerpiece, gather a group of tall arrows and place them in a vase, jar, or other vessel. (We like using glass, as it shows off the arrows’ sculptural nature and colors.) To keep the arrows in place, secure the grouping near the base using a faux-suede string, which you can easily find at a fabric store.
As a Jewelry Holder
We love the idea of using a mini set of arrows to display your well-loved baubles. To achieve this look, lean three arrows in a teepee position, and secure in the middle with double-sided tape. To finish, cover the tape with a beautiful ribbon in a complementary color. Then hang your favorite rings and bracelets!
A Few More Ideas
- Attach a set of arrows in varying colors to the wall to create a piece of abstract art.
- Use them as objects lying on a bookcase, a coffee table, or a nightstand.
- Give them as a gift at your next party by placing one on each place setting on your dining table.
