Spindle and Pallet Wood Heart



DIY Spindle and Pallet Wood Valentine Heart

It’s a month until Valentine’s Day and I couldn’t resist bringing you another pallet wood heart.  This time I’m combining the pallet wood with a few wood spindles.

I used a table top Scroll Saw to slice down the middle of each spindle. You could leave the spindles intact, but I think they are easier to work with this way and you can use half the amount.

Cut out a heart pattern from a large sheet of paper or newspaper.

Transfer your pattern to the spindles.  I tried to use the portion of each spindle with the most carving.

I used the same scroll saw that I used to cut the spindles in half to make the heart cuts.

Because there were some bold colors on the spindles,  I gave each of the spindles a coat of chalk paint.

I cut the pallet wood to fit the heart, sanded the pallets and gave them a coat of white wax.  Watered down white paint, a white wash, would give the same effect.

Paint as desired.  I used 2 shades of pink, 1 red and a white, blended to give different shades of pink.

Nail/glue, scrap wood  cross braces on the back of the pallet wood to secure.

Do the same with the spindles.  I used wood glue then secured with finish nails.

I dirtied my spindles up a little with vintage wax in the spindle grooves. Use more or less depending on your shabby chic desires.
