My sister & her hubby just bought a new home in 2016 and do you know what they’re lacking in? Decor! Especially holiday decor. They had a great apartment before they bought the house, but now that they have a whole house to fill – I wanted to help them fill it. Cue this easy DIY Conversation Heart Frame for Valentine’s Day. Not only is it super easy to make, it’s adorable!
I actually ended up making them two frames so that they could have a matching set & you can, too! This DIY Conversation Heart Frame is an awesome way to decorate your home or workspace for Valentine’s Day!
Here’s what you need:
- Hot glue/hot glue gun
- Conversation hearts
- Craft sticks
- White craft paint
- Paint brush
Here’s what you do:
1. Using hot glue, glue together your craft sticks into a square shape with the craft sticks being doubled on each side to make a frame.
2. Paint your frame white with your white craft paint and let dry (or use a hair dryer for a quicker dry).
3. Once your frame is dry, you can start carefully gluing your conversation hearts all over the front of the frame and even layering the hearts to create dimension.
4. If you don’t want to use yours for a photo, a fun idea would be to cut a piece of pastel paper a 1/4″ bigger than the opening of your frame And carefully hot glue it to the back of your frame and write your own message or glue a photo to the back.
So what do you think of my DIY Conversation Heart Frame? For me when it comes to DIY/craft projects, the easier the better & this one definitely qualifies as easy. There is still plenty of time before the 14th rolls around, so why not make one for yourself? If you do, I would love for you to send me a photo of how yours came out.
