I decided to change my Christmas tree to match my current decor style. I wanted my tree to have a black white and pink bohemian vibe! Looking around for ornaments to use I found that the possibilities of buying what I wanted for my tree were very slim. There just isn’t much out there to create a bohemian theme. In order to do this kind of theme, I would just have to make the ornaments myself to get what I want.

This year I made dozens of five different boho ornaments. The first ones I made are these super easy glittered wood stick arrows with real feathers and suede leather hangers. I also made some out of some with chevron ribbon cut down as the tail of the arrow.

The trick to making these simple as possible is to use adhesive-backed felt to make the triangle for the tip. The sticky backing was so much easier than waiting for the glue to dry on two pieces of felt. One could grow old waiting on the felt to dry! I also wanted them to have some bling. So I added some glue to the felt and dipped them in glitter. Here’s how I put them together.

Cut the felt into a 1.5 x 1.25 inch triangles. Place the end of the wood stick on the sticky side of one of the triangles and press another triangle on the other side to make the tip.

Hot glue 2-3 feathers to the other end of the stick. Cut a piece of suede lace to 7-8 inches. Hot glue one end of the lace to the back of the stick on the feather end.

Another way to make these arrow ornaments is by using ribbon for the tail of the arrow.

I an thrilled with how these ornaments came out. My colors on my tree are black, white, brown, hot pink, silver, gold, and copper. I think the suede makes the white of my flocked tree pop! Stay tuned for more of my boho ornaments! Next up are some fun bullseye’s to go with these arrows!

    So cute. I give my children a new ornament each year. They are all very into archery so I am making the arrows for them this year.
