Drab to Shab..Valentine's Decor Frame

I can't believe that we are less than a month away from Valentine's!! I used to hate this holiday when I was younger and single, but now that I am married and have kids I absolutely love it! I like to do a bunch of little things to show my family how much I love them!! I can't wait!

Since we are getting closer to it I thought it would be good start getting Valentine crafts done. Today I have a cute Valentine's frame to show you.

A few months ago I was at Michael's and they had a bunch of frames on clearance! I just had to get a few. I have had this frame sitting in my craft room since then just waiting for the perfect project to come along. It finally did!! Here is the frame before....


It is all scratched up...definitely clearance material!

To start out, I spray painted it red. Of course it had to be a Valentine's color!

I used the Rust-Oleum Safety Red. I did 4 coats of paint on it. 

Next, I sprayed laquer on it. I wanted it to have a pretty shine finish. 

Then came the fun part...getting to decorate it!!! I started by putting a cream colored glittery piece of paper in the frame. Then I made a banner for it. I cut out triangles on my cricut using scrapbook paper and cut a piece of ribbon to glue them to.

I used the hot glue gun to glue them on. 

Next, I took some decorative wavy red ribbon and glued it to the top of the paper and white ribbon. (I know there is a name for it, but I can't remember. I bought this forever ago and had this left over from another project.)

Then I cut out the word LOVE in black vinyl using the font Oh {Photo} Shoot! found HERE and put each letter on a different triangle.
I then cut the ribbon the length that I wanted it for the frame. I burned the edges so it wouldn't fray. Then I hot glued it to the frame. 

Next, I cut out a heart in red vinyl. I also cut out the words "Is All You Need" in black vinyl in the font Pea Sarah found HERE. Then I stuck both of those to the glass. 

Lastly, I made 5 Super cute paper flowers to put on it. The tutorial for how to make them can be found HERE. I did not put the paper circle in the middle on these ones. I hot glued buttons on them instead!!


And Now....Here is the full complete picture of it!!!


I am so excited to put this up for Valentine's! I just love how it turned out!!!

***Just another reminder that I will be starting my very first Link Party THIS Thursday!!! Please come back and Link Up! I would love you have you!!
