LOVE Mantel

For this easy project, I bought some unfinished wood letters at Michael's.

I gave them a coat of Americana Cherry Red paint then added some white polka dots with white paint and a tooth pick.

While I was shopping at Target the other day, I saw a pack of six 5x7 frames for $9.99 and immediately put those in my cart - can't beat $1.67 a frame.

I added some scrapbook paper I had on hand to each of my frames (I put the glass behind the paper to save for another day).

Then I attached my letters with some double-sided foam tape to the paper.

What doesn't say Valentine's more than LOVE!! Now my mantel is complete.

  5. Love is all you need! I saw these frames at Target but passed them by because they were plastic. Am I correct? How did you find the quality?
