button heart frame

When I packed away all my Christmas decorations, my home seemed so bare!

So I started putting up some of my Valentine's Day stuff!!


I was inspired by this on Pinterest & wanted to make my own version. Here's what I did......




I wanted to fill this white frame that was now empty after the holidays...




I grabbed a piece of grey linen & then made a heart with some pink buttons.

I just set the buttons on & moved them around until it looked like a heart. Then I glued them in place with my trusty glue gun!




Instead of somehow making this permanent in the frame, I just wrapped the linen around the glass, then stuck it all back inside the frame.

After Valentine's Day, I can just store the piece of fabric with my decorations, then my frame will be ready to fill for Easter!




This literally took 5 minutes to make & I love the result!




The subway art was a printable that I framed last year from eighteen25.

The little rosette ball was made by gluing rosettes I made using crepe paper streamers onto a foam ball, then I stuck it on a candle holder.




And because yesterday was kinda gloomy out, it was hard taking decent photos. So my frame even made a trip outside for a quick photo....




I love having some pink stuff up in my home!!!!


Has anyone else brought out their Valentine's decorations yet??

  8. The buttons are so cute! I heard it was hard to make pictures from buttons because you have to get them just the right shape and then not move them! ack! Yours is SO so nice!!
