Despite the fact that Valentine’s Day is just around the corner, this picture frame was actually a gift for hubs’ bday. He ALWAYS buys whatever he wants, when he wants it. This little habit of his proves to be very difficult when I actually need to get him a present. I’ve resorted to making him things instead. I don’t know if he really likes my presents or not, but at least it’s something he can’t buy for himself. :)
It was actually SUPER easy to make! I went bin diving in my craft stash and only used what I had around the house!
Supplies I used:
Plain wooden frame from Michael’s, wood scraps
Mod Podge, craft paint, stamps, twine
Scrapbook paper, scrapbook embellishments, pearls
I cut the scrapbook paper to fit the frame and mod podged it in place. Then, painted the remaining exposed wood white. I took a small wood scrap, painted it white, stamped “love” on it with black paint, mod podged over it, and hot glued it on the upper right corner. Next, I stamped “forever” on a scrapbook embellishment paper I found and mod podged it at the bottom of the frame.
Glue gun time:
I hot glued letter tiles to spell “cherish” down the side of the frame and accented them with pearls. I think the little scrapbook flowers are super pretty… so I glued a couple of those on the lower right corner. In the upper left corner, I made a birds nest out of twine, hot glued it in place, and glued the bird safely in his nest. I thought he might like a rose to keep him company and slapped that bad boy up there as well.
Here is a pic of the completed frame without a picture in it. I used a pic from when we renewed our vows this summer in Jamaica. That way, when he looks at it in his office, he can remember to…
“cherish (our) love forever.”
