Instructions
1. Paint the front of the wood heart with pink chalk paint. Allow the paint to dry.
2. Place the block of wood onto the edge of a workbench. Place one of the forks on top of the block of wood, then clamp both the wood and the fork to the workbench.
3. Put gloves on for protection, then drill a hole into the fork just below the tines.
4. Place the fork on top of the block of wood, this time so that it is hanging over the edge of the workbench. Clamp both the wood and the fork to the workbench.
5. Hammer the fork using the rubber mallet until the fork becomes curved. Use your hands to help mold it into place if needed.
6. Repeat steps 2-5 on the remaining fork as well as the spoon.
7. Place screws throughout the holes in the silverware, then screw them into the middle of the wood heart using the drill.
