This weekend we headed over to Michael’s for their free weekend craft event. We were definitely excited about picking up some new craft supplies as well as making what we hoped would turn into several Valentine’s Day gifts. It wasn’t what I expected- it was actually a whole lot better! This weekend we created picture perfect gifts for the grandparents for Valentine’s Day.
Supplies needed for Picture Perfect Valentine’s Gifts
Wooden picture frames (these have hangers on the back as well as table stands).
Embellishments (we hit up the $1.00 aisle and picked up some beautiful owls, birds and hearts)
To make your picture frame gifts
Pour some glue onto a paper or styrofoam plate.
Leave the store insert in the frame to that glue doesn’t get down in there.
Spread a thin layer of glue in a specific section of your frame using sponge brushes. Do not cover the entire frame at once or the glue will dry too fast.
Decorate with pieces of tissue paper. These were in red, pink, peach, cream, white and a light brown-almost euchre color. As you can see in the top of the image above you can twist the papers to make them “bunch” up for a more floral or three dimensional look. I was in a mosaic mood so that’s mine in the center.
Work your way around the entire frame. You can alternate or form designs. Whatever looks good to you. We then took an wooden owl and placed it in the corner. The girls used the hearts.
