Have you seen the fun arrows that The Wood Connection has?! They are so fun! I've enjoyed decorating my front porch with them. After I did my Fall arrows, I knew I wanted to do some for Christmas as well, so when The Wood Connection asked me to do some Christmas arrows, I jumped at the chance. Let me show you how to make these.
I decided I wanted to do reverse vinyl on my arrows, so that I would be able to put them outside in the weather. The vinyl isn't recommended for outdoor use.
I started by painting my arrows white, the color that I wanted my words to be. Using the transfer tape with the vinyl, I put the vinyl on. Then I painted over my vinyl, the color that I wanted my sign to be. It took two or three coats to get it as dark as I wanted. Make sure to let the paint dry well between coats. Once you have all your paint on, let it dry to the touch, and then start removing your vinyl. Mine did bleed a little bit underneath the vinyl when I painted, but I wasn't worried about that, because I distressed it with a really fine sandpaper.
That's it! You are all ready to take your cute sign outside and put it by your front door!
I was provided with the supplies from The Wood Connection for this project in exchange for the post. The Wood Connection has very reasonable prices, if you are in Utah or Las Vegas and you like what you see, head on into The Wood Connection!
