So i've decided to start posting DIY projects to share with whoever reads this based on the craft projects I complete. Here's the first, just in time for Valentine's Day!!!
If you're anything like me, you collect frames, but it takes you some time to figure out what you want to do with them. You can purchase basic frames pretty cheap from craft stores, Target, even Goodwill and Dollar stores. Well, some friends of mine happened to be giving away stuff they didn't sell in their garage sales after purchasing their new home, and I got this great frame. So this weekend I decided to finally do something with it!
From Blah to Beautiful DIY Frame Makeover
i started out with this frame, though it is lovely, it is pretty blah. so instead of just putting a couple pictures in their, i wanted to personalize it, make it mine.
first, i chose the pictures i wanted to use in the frame
next, i used some pretty pink, red, white and brown scrapbook papers and made a border out of a stripey paper
then, i cut out heart shapes and used letter stickers to write out captions
next, to give it a little pizzaz, i used my glue stick and glitter to decorate a few of the hearts
finally, i added all of the embellishments onto the mat
and here is the final product, back in the frame!!
