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!
