My Lovely Valentine Wall Art

Love is in the air! So is decluttering. I decided to combine the two. I took an old frame that I found at Goodwill for $2.50. It clearly came from a nursery. This thing was just taking up space in my house and I didn't just want to throw it out.  I decided to paint the frame and create a Valentine wall decor thing out of it.  I painted the frame using oil rubbed bronze spray paint-loooovvveee iiittt!

Next, I took out the frame's backing and covered that with some white basket weaved type fabric that I also had lying around.  This gave me a nice textured surface to work upon. 

While the mat dried, I took out my handy dandy Silhouette machine and cut out my phrase and my LOVE cutouts.  I used some scrap cardstock that matched the matting and frame colors.  I glued my phrase cutout onto a scrapbook mat page and I set all of this over another piece of scrap cardstock.  This gave me a little bit of brown bordering around the whole center part.  It looked rather plain at this stage so I went back to my Silhouette and cut out some curly Qs - at least that's what I know them as.  These I stuck at the corners.  Last and finally, I glued all of these cutouts onto the fabric matting and Ta da - Valentine art!

I love this sooo much!  Such great use of would be garbage!  I'm a legend in my own mind!

  2. Cassie I can't thank you enough for saying that because I didn't see too much excitement from it. I love it though and that's all that really matters.

  3. I love repurposing old frames...I just bought one on clearance at TJ's that's HIDEOUS. Lol.

    Fun and festive Vday art!
