Valentine Window (Bow & Arrow How To)


February Brings Romance..
Time for New Front Window Valentine's Day Display
{Vintage-Romantic-Simple}
Bought 1 1/2 inch Plastic Molding trim,
Cut it to the size I wanted,
Drilled holes on either side, and used twine to pull together.

I added some tissue paper on it, trying to give it some substance

Bought a wooden dowel & painted black, so I can use as the arrow.

I then painted the Bow in a (Rustoleum "New" Metallic Gold) then used my Cricut for perfect hearts and painted red and added some Martha Stewart Red Fine Glitter.

Once my wooden stick was black I used flower tape and taped the feather sticks to it, taping it on, and repainting stick black.

And this is how it turned out.

And Wa la-Our front Valentine Window.. 

Going for a Simple Window
Using a Vintage Wolf Dress Form,
adding some Beautiful Feathered Wings,
The Bow & Arrow I made and adding a sweet Gold Chandelier to highlight the scene & lastly a large
 Gold Vintage Framed Chalkboard sharing our wishes of a
Happy Valentine's Day!!
