Valentines Yarn Art Frames

This is not only my first Valentine's Day project of 2011, but it is my first one ever (elementary school excluded). I've never really been big on V-Day, not anti either. It is just a day where we have an extra nice dinner and enjoy the fact we are in love. That being said, I want to decorate for EVERYTHING now that I have kiddos. I think it is important to cultivate a celebratory environment. LOVE is such a great thing to celebrate. Enough rambling . . . on to the reveal!


YARN ART frames



Cute, right? Super simple too. Here's what I did:

  1. Spray painted the frames white. They already were, but they needed to be a cleaner white. I used the crappy 95cent stuff from Home Depot. No one will be touching these.
  2. Cut Scrapbook paper down to size.
  3. Printed out the letters that I wanted and I heart shape. The fonts for each are from a disc I bought several years back.  
  4. Cut through the letters with an exacto knife, and then I traced them backward onto the back of the paper. This gave me a pattern to follow. 
  5. Next, I chose my yarns and sewed the letters onto the paper.
  6. Place in frame. Voila! Enjoy!
Now, wasn't that painless? That martini glass needs something in it though. I think that I am going to have to throw together a few small versions of these from TatertotsandJello
