  5. Stamp the letters onto the arrow to spell a word or words.

  6. Wash the stamps immediately, before the paint dries.

  7. Lightly brush the excessive paint from the foam brush all over the arrow to distress it.

  11. Flip the arrow over and use a staple gun to staple a strip of heavy jute twine to the back of the arrow. This will serve as a hanger.

  12. Add a nail or screw to the wall and hang the arrow.
