Spindle and Pallet Wood Heart

It’s a month until Valentine’s Day and I couldn’t resist bringing you another pallet wood heart.
Like the name suggests, this time I’m combining 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 made sure to use the portion of each spindle that had 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.


Since I had all my supplies on hand, I had no out of pocket costs.
