I've been playing with some textured scrap metal from an unexpected source. I love these "hinged" hearts and I no doubt got my inspiration from various pinterest images over the last few years.
Two hooks for keys!
The metal I used came from cheap metal planter boxes like the one below! This one has fake tulips wrongfully arranged in it. Its pretty easy to cut with good tin snips and sands wonderfully. I did not paint these, I just sanded paint off and I used a hammer to flatten out the design some.
So add that to your list of things to scour the thrift stores and yard sales for.
