Arrows aren’t just for traffic signage and pointing people in the right direction to wherever they want to go. While they’re not typically seen in home décor, there’s a bit of a known trend in using arrows as wall art and to draw attention to smaller details.
If you’ve been thinking about adding arrows to your home style, but haven’t narrowed down which idea you love most, then this list might give you the inspiration you’ve been looking for.
Arrow Jewelry Hanger
Make your own arrow jewelry hanger using dowels and gold hardware. To give the wood dowel a little glow, cover your arrow with gold paint. Get the tutorial at Lemonade Makin’ Mama.
Eye-Catching Wall Art
Whether you have a small vertical space beside a piece of furniture or a large blank wall to work with, you can certainly find the right sized piece of arrow art (or collection of arrows) to fill that space perfectly. Get the tutorial Little Brick House.
Wooden Wall Arrows
For a teenager’s bedroom, it shows a different style of arrow that creates a unique focal point on the wall beside the bed. Get the tutorial at Two-thirty-Five Designs.
This decorative DIY is so clever: Just use a pencil sharpener to turn a simple wooden dowel into an arrow. To spruce up your spring and summer décor, embellish your arrow with colorful feathers and bright neon paint.
For fall place settings, use wood stain, gold foil, and a dark colored feather to give your arrow a rustic look. Get the tutorial at Rustic Wedding Chic.
Simpler Wall Art
If huge arrows that stretch straight across a wall are too intense for your liking, smaller wall art pieces might be a good option. Simply hang them or lean them up against the wall on a piece of furniture. Get the tutorial at Dandelion Patina.
Wooden arrow art pieces make for a great rustic look, but if you’re looking for something a little less woody, then you might consider using wall decals instead. Get the tutorial at The Lillypad Cottage.
Arrow Dish Towel
Arrows looks great in any room in your home, even the kitchen. To get this cute tea towel set, all you need are blank towels and a sharpie. Get the tutorial at Cherished Bliss.
