MY DIY | Wire Heart Paperclips







I saw these heart paperclips from Anthropologie on pinterest the other day, and thought they were the absolute cutest, but was bummed to see they were sold out. So, I grabbed some wire I already had at the studio and whipped up a batch in no time! Wouldn’t this be the perfect gift for someone starting a new job (or anyone who geeks out about office supplies like me), just put a bunch in an empty match box. MUAH!! Follow along with the making of this project over on Snapchat (username: ispydiy)! Steps and supplies after the break…


What you need: 
Craft Wire
Jewelry Pliers 

What to do:
Use the flat pliers create the point in the middle of a piece of 4inch wire.
Create a loop on each side using the round pliers.
Trim the ends. 
Sand the ends if they are sharp

  25. LOOKS GOOD! I love all those different paint colours, hard to choose one!
    I have also painted some funiture, look

  26. Maria G. says:

    Amazing! This is something that I can relate to as I am also a sucker for painting. Just last week, I repainted my dresser and was also happy with the results. For me, don’t worry about choosing bright colors. Sometimes they amaze you in different ways than dark colors. They make an object unique and modern. Lowes is a good choice!

    I love giving old pieces of furniture a facelift–this looks great! And that has to be one of the most hilarious Friends episodes you referenced–I think of it every time I move!
