  • Step 1

    This is a very simple project to add some rustic charm to your home.

  • Step 2

    Using your turquoise acrylic paint, apply the paint using the dry brush method.

  • Step 3

    Don't apply heavily, you want some of the wood showing through.

  • Step 4

    Draw or trace a heart onto your wood.

  • Step 5

    Using white acrylic paint, start dry brushing the heart.

  • Step 6

    Make it a little darker, but still let some of the wood show through.

  • Step 7

    Take your wire and metal key.

  • Step 8

    Place the key over the heart, and hold it in place and start wrapping the wire around the wood.

  • Step 9

    Continue wrapping the wire haphazardly.

  • Step 10

    Flip over, and using your pliers twist the wire together to tighten just enough to hold the key in place. Trim excess wire ends and tuck under.

  • Step 11

    No need to add a hook for hanging, just hang by the wire on the back.
