Hello! As you can tell since I have been back home, I have been a bit lazy! I have not had that much ambition or balance to speak of to get in the mood to craft. Today, I finally felt like I am getting back to myself again.
I ran over to Walmart for something totally unrelated to crafting, but some how or another wound up in the craft supply section. I picked up a few things to make a Valentine art. Every since Rachel was a guest here a few weeks ago and shared her Valentine button art with scrap paper I wanted to do something along the similar lines, of course with my own twist.
Supplies you will need:
One plaid wood picture frame
Waverly inspirations chalk paint in white
Pearl Mod podge
hot glue gun
scrabble tiles optional
Owl stickers optional
I have never used the new Waverly chalk paint sold at Walmart now. Thought I would give it a whirl. I liked it. It dried extremely fast.
I gave the frame two coats of paint. Then I went over it with the pearl mod podge, some shimmer in blue, and placed some owl stickers on each corner of the frame. Those are optional, but I love owls so I thought they would be cute. Plus, they have hearts on them. I will talk later on about that shimmer I used. I have an experiment I am going to try very soon.
I love the little fabric quarters that Walmart sells. They have some cute patterns. It only costs .97 cents. I still have a nice piece left over for a future project. And, yes my I, is upside down I just noticed. Oh well, an I is an I no matter how you place it LOL!
I painted the back of the inner frame with mod podge, and adhered the fabric right to it and lightly smoothed it out.
After that dried I placed it back in the frame, and that is when I added my twine heart, and the scrabble tile letters to the frame.
Now to find some cute young gal to give this to. A lot of my friends have daughters, so I am sure I won’t have a problem finding one. When I craft and share, I try to appeal to all masses. I know a lot of you have grandchildren that you like to do crafts with too. So just another idea to throw your way.
Thanks for stopping over today. If you are new here, welcome. I have lots of crafts, diy projects and more for you to browse through.
Pin it, make it:)

Aw how sweet debbie, love the scrabble tiles 🙂
I love your frame, Debbie. I never thought about using the quilting squares. While my kiddos were in college, they did homemade Christmas gifts one year. They made a name plate for my desk out of Scrabble letters and the little frame that holds them in the game. It is in my office now. I was missing your ideas. Glad you are back home.
What a cute frame! I love the Walmart craft section (well pretty much any craft section). But their prices are really reasonable and you know I love that!

Debbie, your frame is very cute! I have a question. I have looked on your site for a dollar store basket you purchased and painted part of it white. I believe you might have used some rope on it too. I was going to try that, but I can’t find it on your site. Am I crazy?
Doris, I will have to look. I do not recall doing that at all. That is not to say I have not. Let me think, I have painted some with rit dye, but they were colors, and I have bought baskets to hang as plant hangers as well. Let me poke around Doris and see.
for my tablescape I make fabric hearts from valentine print and at the thrift store I found a small wood tree mug holder, red crochet thread , red and black ladybug buttons and black and white lace. I cut out the shapes , took the red thread and blanket stitched around and left an opening to stuff then closed the end. On the top of the heart I put the lace to make a loop and put a button in the middle. It had to have stitching in the back because the fullness left a gap. Then I out 3 hearts on the tree and place in the middle of my table.
Sounds very cute Linda!
