Whether you have a special partner or not, February is a great month to make a classy craft for your wall that brings some joy and fun! This frame of hearts is easy to make and looks beautiful. You’ll need a frame, some magazines to cut up, and a little bit of time to veg, maybe watching your favorite TV show or listening to quality tunes.
DIY 3D Hearts Frame Craft
- White shadowbox frame, or white frame with some cardboard added between the mat and the backing to add some depth.
- Magazines to cut up
- Glue (stick or Elmer’s)
Cut out sections of red from your magazines, and glue to another sheet of paper for added sturdiness. Then, cut out small red hearts, about the size of your thumbnail. Fold them down the middle to give them some dimension. Next, take the white backing for your frame, and use a pencil to lightly add a square grid to it – planning on putting one heart in each box. For added fun, plan to leave one box empty for a little phrase written in, such as “always” or “i love you,” etc. Now, using a dot of Elmer’s glue, glue all of your hearts to the backing, one in the center of each box. A vertical row at a time will help you make sure they’re aligned well. You want the middle, or the line of the fold, to be stuck to the back, and both sides of the heart to come off the paper.
Once the hearts are dried, erase the grid lines you penciled in. Write in the phrase you chose in the empty box. Then put the heart-studded backing together in the frame and you’re done! What a cozy, whimsical addition to any home.
A heart craft is a great way to celebrate in February, and you can also make sure to focus on keeping your real heart healthy. If you’d like to speak to a doctor about making sure your life is lived strong and well, schedule a visit today by clicking below. We look forward to hearing from you!
