DIY Heart Decoration
On my latest trip to the dollar store I found cute pink frames that are just perfect for Valentine’s decor, or any decor! If your dollar store doesn’t carry them don’t worry, they’re just pink shadow box frames without the glass. You can easily make your own by picking up a frame at your local craft store.
Bling on the Love Craft Hop
If you came over from another blog in the hop and clicked on the link for CraftCreateCalm, that me! I’ve just done a little redecorating around here and that included a name change for my blog. I’d love to have you follow me on Facebook too! You can head over to CraftCreateCalm where I share family friendly activities, or to my new page for the Moments at Home DIY where I share DIY crafts.
I added a little bling to the hearts in the frames because they’re part of a Bling on the Love Craft Hop. Check out the links to more blinged out crafts at the bottom of this post.
1 Pink Shadowbox frame with the glass removed
1 Wooden heart ornament
Clear beads with a sparkle (I used crystal beads from a craft store.)
If you’re using a shadowbox that doesn’t have the clothes-pin you’ll also need wire and a clothes-pin. You can skip those if you want to glue your heart directly to the inside of the frame.
- Remove the back of the frame. Cover the part of the backing that will face inside the frame with white paper and glue in place. Attach the backing to the frame. If you’re using the frame found at the dollar store you may need to remove one side of the wire to put the paper on, then reattach it when you’re done.
- Paint the wooden heart ornament blue and let it dry.
- With the beads still on the string, carefully glue them around the edges of the painted heart. You may need to cut off any extra beads with scissors. Let the glue dry.
- Use the clothes-pin to hang the heart inside the frame.
Make these hearts in different colors andn add them to a child’s bedroom decor or as a pretty addition to your Valentine’s day home decor!
