It seems like yesterday when the Christmas decorations were put away & the radio stopped playing Christmas tunes 24/7. Can you believe that Valentines Day is right around the corner? I already see store displays full of heart-shaped boxes and cinnamon hearts!
well, luckily this craft isn’t seasonal. In fact, it won’t be coming down after Valentines Day!
I guess it wasn’t really made for any occasion, but to serve as a little, lovely reminder (we can always use some of those…) :)
Especially with my husband being a person who thrives on verbal affirmation, this is a great way to brighten up his day (and it’s always fun to write on glass!)
So here’s what I needed (I made a lot of changes along the way until I found colours that felt right in our kitchen). I guess my mom was right when she said I can’t make up my mind! :)
I punched out a heart (I originally wanted to use the turquoise paper, but opted for a lighter green… this didn’t last long either). Here I used the scrap paper as a (ghetto) straight edge for my letters (I made sure it measured 6 cm across at every point), then taped them in place.
I then spray painted the plastic frame with a dark smoky grey (Rustoleum’s Glossy Dark Grey) & ended up with the love frame (where it sits comfortably on the empty wall above our garbage can).
