Love Metal Membership Club Challenge May 2020: Use only metal offcuts from previous projects to create a new piece of art
We’ve been having a lot of fun in the Love Metal Membership Club this month.
Our challenge for the month of May 2020 is to only use scrap metal pieces from previous projects to create a brand new piece of art.
Ideas on how to use metal off-cuts in creating new pieces of art
I will definitely advise you to never ever throw away pewter and metal off-cuts. I have found that you can even use tiniest corners to gift a wooden box a facelift or make an pair of earrings.
Some of the ways in which you can use little metal pieces, include:
- Embellishment for candles, tins or glass jars
- Rock art
- Gift tags
- Embellishments on greeting cards, and more!

This heart is where it all started… In April, during the Covid-19 lockdown, I signed myself up for Matt Tommey’s Quarantined Creatives art challenge.
The first challenge was to create a piece of art entirelt out of something you would have thrown away…
I have been saving metal-off-cuts from other projects for over 15 years, so I had lots of interesting pieces to play around with. These included pewter, aluminium, copper-coated aluminium and coloured metal off-cuts.
In this video, I share the entire process of creating this heart, as I went along
