Corrugated Heart

I am really excited about this post, because I haven't seen any projects involving corrugated roofing. So I hope you like it...

Supply List:
Tin Snips.............. $15.97
Gloves................. $4.46
Corrugated roofing..... $11.80- 2x8 sheet
spray paint
wire

OK, here we go...
First things first, get your supplies ready. You will also need a pattern. I used newspaper/ads. I decided to make a heart, so I cut out a heart.
You really need gloves to cut the metal, you will get cut if you don't. Tape your pattern onto the metal, and cut the heart out. It helps if you cut around the heart, then once the basic shape of it is cut out, go back and cut it exactly to the pattern.
Drill two holes in the heart so you can hang it up.
Spray paint and let dry...
I really like poka-dots, so I cut some circles using my Cricut and randomly stuck them to the heart.
String the wire through the holes. I did some curlys at the end.

Display- SO CUTE!!!!



I also cut out a shamrock. I'll post it once it gets closer to March.

Came over from the Tip Junkie linky.

I have seen these around, and wanted one so badly, but they are expensive, so I have never bought one.

I'm going to bookmark this post, and make one for myself, and maybe even a few as gifts!

Does it take forever (and is it really hard) to cut the metal? Also, what kind of wire did you buy, and how did you do the curlies on it?

Sorry for the questions, but I seriously intend to make this! :)

haven't seen anything like this - very creative! Looks so adorable on your front door and the polka dots are fresh and fun. The shamrock is certain to be equally as sweet. Thanks for sharing this brilliant idea!

I absolutely love this! The possibilities are endless! You are a pretty awesome snipper - I know mine would never come out that cute! I saw some huge fleur de lis cut out of roofing tin in a diner one time.
