Recycled Hardware Metal Heart

Good morning! It’s Valentine week! Do you have your Valentine’s ready to pass out to friends? Enough candy to last a lifetime? Well, this project today won’t add calories, but it might lighten up your junk pile a bit!

I saw some other projects on Pinterest where crafters used different pieces of hardware to create signs. It reminded me of these scroll pieces I had that I never quite knew what to do with. When I pulled them out, I realized they made a heart. Perfect! I started with a board that had previously been painted grey, my two scroll pieces, a hook and chalk paint.

I added a sawtooth hanger on the back of the board before I started with everything else on the front.

I lightly painted over the board with the turquoise chalk paint. Once it was dry, I sanded the whole board again, so that some turquoise and some grey both showed.

I just glued my pieces on the board with Gorilla Glue. No tools required!

Once my pieces were glued, I let it dry overnight.

I hung it on my dining room wall and added a little pink heart to from the hook.

Such a simple little project! I’m glad I finally found a use for those pretty little scroll pieces! Have a Happy Valentine’s Day!!

    This is so cute and creative! I love how simple it is to make. My husband has a ton of scrap wood so I think I’m going to dig through it and try to make something similar. I would love to have it in the bathroom for hanging towels on. Thank you for the inspiration!
