PJ 317 – Salvaged Junk Hearts

We’re celebrating LOVE this weekend, along with your other fabulous junk, so here’s a few of my favs…
Rustic Heart Features
DIY driftwood heart, by My Creative Days
You can just about hear the waves crashing along the shore with this sweet driftwood heart. This year around heart, beach style, is absolutely gorgeous!

Pauline’s long been the master of making art with wood scraps, and her junk hearts are no exception. This post showcases a few of her designs. Get ready to drool…

I don’t think I’ve ever wanted to go gather branches moreso than I do right now! Isn’t this one stunning valentine?

Donna thanks for the feature and for hosting this great eclectic party! Now I’m off to hoard some more Paper rolls! Have a great weekend!
Thanks for the inspiration, Donna. I know when I click on your email that it’s going to bring a smile to my heart. I’m in the hospital with Esther for her 4day weekend Chemo treatment and it’s got her knocked out. Thanks for the smile – I really needed it this morning.
Love the love in all the Valentines.
I saw the title and thought “My Valentine’s Day project would fit in on this post!” LOL
You would be proud of me….I made a heart clock for my husband…for the master bath, so he can know what time it is in the morning while getting ready for work.
The clock part itself was a whopping $2.49 at CVS Pharmacy on clearance after Christmas. (was $10)I took a piece of old plywood and cut it to 18×18, then cut corners off to make it a hexagon shape…just to be interesting. Then I took a piece of wood that was leftover from making my kitchen island (the kind of wood you use for the side of a cabinet…real thin) and cut a heart shape with my jig saw.
I “stained” the wood using acrylic paint mixed with a little water. The hexagon is a light tanish brown, and the heart is red. I attached the raised heart onto the hexagon with a few scrap pieces of wood and some wood glue. The clock face has a sticky back, so that was easy to attach to the heart. The numbers were also sticky backed (and look like silver metal).
The plywood has some interesting natural features…and a stamp on it…so I thought it would look cool. I know it does cuz my 21 year old said so! haha
It didn’t take long at all to make. Waiting for the “stain” and glue to dry is what took the longest. But I had it done in a day.
Now my hubby has no excuse to run late in the morning….LOL
love all the creative hearts and of course always your blog!
Wishing Tons of Love for Valentines Day!
