Hello friends, Can you even believe that the holidays have come and gone so quickly? I can’t! It’s been a crazy busy holiday season this year! But today I’m slowing down to show you how to make this super fun Valentine’s Day DIY I’ve been working on.
Here is the before! I found this empty frame a few months ago at our local Habitat For Humanity Store. It was pretty dirty and needed a good painting but I knew it had potential. The best part? It was only $1.50! What-what?
I just had to have it. Now it’s a beautiful statement piece for my mantle for Valentine’s Day. It’s not just a Valentine’s Day DIY though. I think after the holidays I will replace the heart with a boxwood wreath. It has so many versatile uses. But for now Valentine’s Day DIY decor.
Valentine’s Day DIY
what you will need
A large empty frame of your choice
Paint your frame the color of your choice. I used Waverly chalk paint in white for my frame. I didn’t use any primer and only needed 1 coat. See why I love Waverly chalk paint? Just make sure if you’re using an old frame like I did you clean it well before painting.
Cut your chicken wire to length with wire cutters and use a staple gun to secure to the frame. You can see here I cut my wire a little long so I just trimmed it down once I had it secured to the frame.
Now you’re just going to bunch up your tissue paper like your going to put into a gift bag. I hope that makes sense. Start by making your outline of your heart. Then fill in the center fo your heart. Fluffing and crunching where needed.
And that is it. So simple and a beautiful DIY statement piece for your mantle or entryway table for Valentine’s Day.
Now don’t think you have to do it exactly like mine. Use your imagination and get creative. I think it would also look awesome with polka dot tissue paper or even a gold or brown. And I’d bet you have some old wood or frame around your house you could use instead of purchasing something new. When DIYing and decorating on a budget you have to get creative as to what you can use in different ways. I can up with this project by searching my craft closet and looking at things I already had and could use.
I hope you have pulled some inspiration from this post and I’m wishing you the happiest of new years.
