Vintage Tart Tin Angels

6:19:00 AM

When I found about 100 metal
spring photo holders at a garage sale I knew
someday they'd be something great.

Today's the day... 
I had a bunch of vintage tart tins and old clock faces... 

I turned on the creative machine and got to work.

There is nothing I love more than to sit with a bunch
of parts and work them until they turn into something new.

I drilled holes in the center of the tart tins then 
attached the tins to the top of the spring.

I pounded a few of the extra tart tins flat
then cut them in half to create wings.  I attached the
wing to the back of the spring using hot glue.

On the inside of the tin I painted the inner circle with 
Old  White chalk paint. When the paint was dry
I added an old clock face. The circle 
on the face of the clock made the perfect angel mouth.
I used a Sharpie and added eyes.

I hung a length of jute at the top of the
spring to turn the angels into hanging ornaments.
