Tin Heart Bling Ornaments

Tin tiles get a new life today!

I got a load of tin tiles from the thrift store that were too interesting to just leave there. 

I used the stainless steel tiles to tile above my stove but I wasn't sure what to do with the gold and the brass tiles that were also part of my haul, until now...

I traced a heart onto the tiles and cut them out using regular scissors.

It is important to sand the edges to smooth the sharp edges!

I made a similar tin ornament a few years ago...

This time I painted the tin with white chalk paint.

When the paint dried I sanded the heart so the gold and silver showed through.  

I waxed the hearts for protection and punched a hole in the top and the bottom to hang a little bling.

The glass bling was leftover from an old chandelier.

(everything I work with is leftover from something)

Each heart is hanging from a length of glass chain.

and a larger glass jewel hangs from the bottom.

I tied a bow on each heart. 

The result is an ornament you'll want to use for Valentine's Day and year round.

These hearts make great holiday ornaments or
 gifts for any occasion!
