DIY: Hearts picture frame art and bedroom nook
Inspired by this etsy seller, we made a little picture art frame filled with fluttering hearts for our bedroom. It was simple enough to get the frame (from Ikea), choose the colors and paper, and cut out the hearts using a handy punch tool from Michaels. The difficulty with this project lay in actually arranging the hearts in even lines and gluing them in. So, as we've come to find out, I am the visionary when it comes to these projects, and B is actually the person that does the work and gets it done. What can I say, he just has more follow through than I do! (or is just tired of my half forgotten craft projects lying around the house)
Here is the completed work of art (I did krylon the frame with a nice glossy gray paint)
And up on our bedroom wall with one of my favorite prints from EnormousChampion (one of my favorite Sinatra songs!), a picture of us at a wedding last year, and this great decal from Shana Murray purchased through Enid at the Dallas Flea. It's super simple to put on (uh thanks to B again) and I love how it looks--I can't wait to get more!
