DIY Arrows + The Hunger Games

I’ve wanted arrows since I met Katniss Everdeen on the pages of the addictive Hunger Games series (yep, addictive: as in, read it in a weekend, barely came up for air though did make time for gummy bears; ask me about it – I’ll convince you to read them all, twice.)

So now I want to fling arrows.  But between my inability to throw in a straight line (that is, if the object takes flight in the first place) and the clear danger (nerdy personal injury lawyer in me is shivering in my patent heels), I’m thinking this is not one of my better ideas.  Lucky for me, it’s pretty sweet to decorate with arrows instead.

And when it comes to weddings, there are already some amazing Hunger Games styled shoots out there: loving both this shoot, featuring hard core bride, by Green Wedding Shoes and this more romantic take on the film/series by the Wedding Chicks.

There are a few gorgeous arrow options on Etsy. Check out sweetshorn and NativeShop for beautiful, handmade and colorful arrows.

But if you’ve got that can’t-shake-the-DIY-mindset (I feel your over-achieveing pain), a few oh-so-helpful step-by-step plans to a perfect arrow …

Design*Sponge offers up a gorgeous Valentine’s Day arrow DIY using paint, feathers, and hearts.
