I wanted to decorate my mantle for Valentines Day. I started with my "LOVE" Wood Blocks and when I completed them, I had a great idea. I don't know if you have seen the awesome, funky frames from The Organic Bloom...if you haven't, you must. Jump on over to the right of this post and click on their button. I sell these cool frames through my photography business, Bliss Images. If you are interested or have questions, just let me know.
Anyway, I have a bunch of their frames, because I love them so. I happen to have a red one and had a great idea to do something really simple for the holiday. I grabbed a piece of cardboard and cut it to 8x10 inches. Then took a cotton drop cloth from my local paint store and covered the piece of cardboard using a glue gun. Next, I cut out two lovebirds and two hearts from scrapbook paper that I had and glued them to my "canvas." Last, I wrote the word "love" with a paint pen across the top.
That's it...but, when you put it in this frame, it looks brilliant!
I am almost done with my mantle. Just a few more touches and I will share the whole look with you.
