How to make a wedding horseshoe

There are many traditions for weddings coming from old beliefs or superstitions that centre on bringing luck to the bride and groom. Some of these traditions include the timeless "something old, something new, something borrowed and something blue." One symbol that brings good luck and charm is the horseshoe. Bring luck to the newlyweds, and make a wedding horseshoe for the couple's home out of an authentic iron horseshoe and a few craft supplies.

Skill level:Moderately Easy

Things you need

Iron horseshoeWire brushTowelLiquid dish soapCan spray rust inhibitorLatex corrosive-inhibitor primerPaintbrushesAcrylic latex silver paintHot glueWhite satin ribbon, 36-by-2-in.Craft crystals

Instructions

1 Remove any dirt or rust from the horseshoe with an iron brush. Wipe away any dust because of the removal with a clean towel.

2 Wash the iron horseshoe with warm water and liquid dish soap. Dry completely.

3 Spray the clean horseshoe with a rust inhibitor. Apply a coat of primer to the horseshoe, letting the primer dry for one to two hours.

4 Paint one side of the horseshoe with the acrylic latex silver paint. Let the side dry for two hours before painting the other side.

5 Tie the white satin ribbon in a bow. Place a small dot of hot glue on one side of the end of the horseshoe, and attach the one end of the ribbon. Press the ribbon to the hot glue to secure in place; use the end of a solid object to hold the glue in place so you don't burn your fingers. Do the same with the other side of ribbon.

6 Wrap the ribbon around the end of the horseshoe two times. Place another dot of hot glue on the ribbon that you wrapped around the horseshoe, and secure the lose ribbon to the glue. Make sure you wrap the ribbon so it ends on the backside of the horseshoe. Do the same thing on the other end of the horseshoe.

7 Glue craft crystals to the centre point of the horseshoe. Space them an equal distance apart. Use three to five crystals, depending on the size and your preference.

Tips and warnings

You can glue tiny artificial flowers or tiny artificial doves to the horseshoe if desired. Have a note with the wedding horseshoe describing the reason behind the gift, which is to hang in their new home to bring good luck and fortune.
