DIY Heart Shaped WOOD Padlock with Fake Rust

 
Hi Friends!
 
This  Heart Padlock is made of wood and painted to look like a rusty antique!
 
 
 
 
The heart was cut from a scrap of wood.
 
Pine is great for making detailed shapes, because it is a softer wood.
 
My heart is 1 3/4'' wide by 2 1/2'' long, 1'' thick
 
 
 
I had a broken lock and I used the top piece, but you can use any
 
 
small U- bolt or C- shaped scrap of  hardware.
 
 
 
I used a drill press to make holes for the lock. 
 
 
Held in place with a vise. 
 
 
 
 
I used my mini E6000, and a small hammer to tap the piece into the heart.

 
I found these picture hangers on the back of an old
 
picture frame. I thought they would work fine for my locks' keyhole.


I marked where it would be attached and then drilled a shallow hole

to give the illusion of a skeleton keyhole.
 


 
 
I used Black Acrylic paint inside the keyhole.


 
The paint that I used was left over from a past project.
 



This Cobblestone Grey is a close match.

After the grey was dry, I dry brushed a little Black and some touches of

Pure Gold.
 
 
Here it is after it was painted. 
 


Below was my inspiration lock next to my wood lock.




Now we are going to add some Rust-

 
 
 
How To Make Fake Rust


 
 
You will need about 1/2 teaspoon Ground Cinnamon
 
and some white glue and a paint brush 



 
With the paint brush, put a small amount of glue on your lock
 
and add a tiny bit of Cinnamon.
 







Looks Dirty and Rusty !   PERFECT
 

I added a piece of antique lace for hanging.

  6. HI Lisa,
    What a great job you did on this! Thank you SO MUCH for sharing how you got the look of rust on wood. I've often wondered how to do this ad will save your post for future projects. It looks so very realistic. I never would have guessed that the "secret ingredient" is cinnamon! Happy Valentine's Day! Cheryl
