I posted on Valentine's Day over at Brassy Apple, but in case you missed it here it is again. Make this frame for your own house or as a gift!
Paint (and sand the edges if desired) a Malma mirror from Ikea. I used a couple of coats of this pretty robin's egg blue. If you've got another frame already, you can use that.
Then make finger print hearts on the side using your kids' fingers. The easiest way is to put the paint on with a paintbrush like this. If you just try dipping a finger it can get pretty gloppy.
Repaint for each side of the heart, then I lightly filled in the bottom to make a point and make it more heart shaped.
Finally, run a strip of washi tape across the bottom of the whole square. I had this red with white polka dots that was perfect for this project.
Here it is all finished and ready to hang on the wall, or like I did, glue a block of wood to the back/bottom so it will just stand up on its own. Thanks for reading!
