I'm sharing these scrap wood hearts I made. I made a small one for an Eco Art Fest. It needed to be made from recycled, up-cycled, objects.
My daughter Rachel wanted me to make her a large one for her birthday. Here is the one I made for her.
This one is made out of scrap wood lath, an old wood curtain rod with grooves in it, a piece of wainscoting cap, some chippy white crown molding, delicate gold trim, two old rulers, a chair rung, and then I added a crusty cupboard lock, an old key and a small piece of ruler. You can tell how large this one is compared to the glass and paper plate. I really enjoyed making these, but it took me several hours to find the right pieces to give me the look and pattern I wanted.
Another scrap project is this dragonfly I made out of an old wooden rocker arm, some scrap wood trim pieces, and some found object eyes. I think it turned out cute.
If these inspire you to try something new please comment and let me know.
