One of my favorite bloggers, fellow Minnesotan Laurel Putnam, of "Chipping with Charm" created crosses from layering two door strike plates. Laurel's post is here. Laurel made her strike plates crosses into Christmas tree ornaments for friends.
I found four strikes plates today for $4. This is what I did with my strike plates.
I'm not exactly sure but I think Laurel tied her strike plates together with jute and added a button, tag and a key. I added an Easter verse from Luke printed on my inkjet printer on manila colored card stock, and antiqued a bit with Old English furniture polish. I then glued the verse to the back of the "layered" strike plates. I used E-6000 to glue the two strike plates together and to adhere the verse and magnet.
Salvaged Easter "refrigerator magnets".
Thanks Laurel for the great idea!
