Wire Heart Statue

1

Hi,
I wanted to make gift for my girlfriend, but not something usual, so I come up to this idea.
It is a statue of heart, but real human heart and it's made from wire.
It look like it is simple, but you'll need a lot of time to make it.
Good luck making yours!

Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.

Step 1: Materials

It doesn't require much material, just a lot of wire and patience!
So you'll need:
-Wire

You can take any dimensions, thinner will be easier to mold, but thicker will look better

-Pilers

-Something to hold it while you solder it

-Soldering Iron

-Color spray

-Some wood for stand

-Drill

-Girlfriend(optional)

Step 2: Soldering

Once you have all the parts, you can start soldering.

First solder the basic shape, then connect it with wire.

When soldering, a stand or some clips will help you to hold the wire in place.

Be patient and fill the cavities slowly to get the heart into shape

Step 3: Coloring and Making a Stand

When you are satisfied with heart shape, solder one thick wire that will serve as a holder.

After that, it's time to paint. Clean the wire so it's not greasy from your hands, and paint it with spray paint.

Let it dry, and after that, make some stand.

I made two - I didn't like the first one because it was "too ordinary" so I made the second one so it looks better.

Step 4: Give It to Someone You Love

The end result looks like this!

It's a little strange to give someone your heart, but why not?

Just make sure that the person will take care of him :)

Good luck with making your own!
