Arrowheads

My husband used to collect arrowheads when he was a kid. I found a Native American Knife. When we moved to our house, we decided to make shadow boxes for them and label them the best that we could.

My husband cut the wood, he glued them together, I sanded, stained and varnished them, I cut all the mats and he labeled them and hung them all. Then I thought furniture tacks would look great in the frames.

I think there is 9 of them. I hope someday we find more.

I love this!! You are so artistic and this turned out perfect.

We just sold an indian rattle or they may have called it a raddle. It was very old and I was so afraid it would get damaged that I am happy we sold it.
