I finally was able to finish another project for the nursery! It was a really easy project, but I just couldn’t seem to get it done all at one time. 🙂 It’s finished now and up on the wall and I LOVE it! Let me show you just how easy this Nursery Wall Arrow Decor was to put together.
I picked up all of my supplies at The Wood Connection. The arrows, paper, paint, wood glue, paint brush, and sandpaper.
I sanded all the edges of the arrows, and then placed them down on my paper. I used the straight edge of the paper to line up with the middle of the arrow. I traced the arrow half onto the paper.
I cut out the arrow halves and placed them on the arrows, making sure they fit right.
After I traced the arrows onto the paper, I painted the edges white.
Using Wood Glue, I spread it out on the top of the arrows. I used a sponge brush to spread the glue out evenly.
I placed both sides of the paper on at the same time, using a vinyl squeegee to smooth it out and get it stuck down really well.
I used the sandpaper to sand off the edges of the paper after the glue was dry, also giving it just a hint of a distressed look.
Once I had all three of them finished up, I hung them on the wall. I used command strips to place them on the wall, the velcro kind. They make it so easy to re-position things!
Don’t you think they go well with the baby mobile that I shared a couple of weeks ago?
Now that I have the nursery to this point, I’m getting really excited about finishing up the rest of it. One of these days, I might even try to fix the crib, where my older kids decided to chew on it. 🙂
Next week, with the baby themed posts, I’ll be sharing some photos of my new baby, and how I’m easily documenting his life. Be on the look out for that!
