In this class, Courtney focuses on one of her favorite motifs—the wooden arrow—and shows you how to make a hand-crafted version for your Valentine. This rustic arrow is made using basic materials from a hardware store and around the house, like a dowel, bits of leather and string, spray paint, paper, and glue, and can be personalized as much or as little as you like. While the arrow is a perfect gift for Valentine’s Day, its sophisticated style will look great hanging on your wall year-round.
