The key to my heart~

Here’s a quick and easy craft that carries a powerful message~

It’s simply a craft store key hung on a scrap piece of wood trim~ check it out!


I set it on my kitchen counter when I made it a while back and love it so much I just left it there.

I like the way it looks, but more importantly I like what it symbolizes~


“And I will give unto thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.”  Matthew 16:19 

I decided to write this verse along the sides of the scrap wood as a reminder of the power in prayer that we have been given as followers of Christ!

1-2-3 Steps:

1. Paint or stain wood scrap.

2. Pin antique key to wood with upholstery tack.

3. Using permanent marker, write message or verse along edges of wood.

This is so cute and easy, and would make a fun gift to give~

I added the tiny red heart just for Valentine’s Day!

      As I read this, I thought about the wonderful crafts we use to do as I grew up… One of greatest memories was making the Scandinavian dough dolls, and this morning I thought of Bluebirds and the bead crafts we use to do…Always felt so special having you as my Bluebird leader! Those were great memories! 🙂
