Last week I found a bunch of heart shaped little tin molds at the thrift store. 14 to be exact.
How perfect is that? Finding 14 hearts for Valentine's Day!
Wreaths, wind chimes, using them as molds for chocolate, candles, plaster. Just a plethora of great ideas.
In the end, I decided to make a wall hanging for my front door.
I used upholstery webbing, because a) I already had it sitting here and b) it has red in it. But mainly because of a. Free is a good thing.
The tins are just hot glued there with three little spots of glue per mold. When I want to remove them, I can just peel them off and scrape off the glue.
I hung the whole shebang from an old wooden hanger I had bought at a thrift store last year.
The bow was added at the last minute because it was just looking a bit too plain without it.
Just a little glimpse into my crafting mind - my bow is mainly put together with staples. Why twist and tie when you can fold and staple?
Voila, my Tin Heart, Chair Webbing, Thrift Store Wooden Hanger, Stapled Bow, Valentine's Day Wall Hanging That's Actually Made For Your Door.
I may need to think of a shorter name for it.
Oh, and now I have 9 heart molds left with no idea in the world what to do with them 🙂 Sort of have the same problem I started with, now don't I!
I'm off to shovel some more %[email protected]# snow. It. Just. Keeps. Falling.
