Valentine Burlap and Button Art

We finally got our Christmas tree down and the rest of the Christmas decorations put away.  I'm usually disappointed that it's all over, but it is nice to have the house back to normal.  And now that we're married, we have something fun to look forward to...

Valentine's Day!

After all of my single years of dreading February 14th, you bet I'm doing V-day big this year (we did it big last year, too, but we didn't have the blog).

I have several projects to share, and the first is by far the easiest and quickest.  Do you remember my burlap and button art from a few months back?  It was a big hit!  I loved it so much I thought I'd do one for Valentine's Day.

All you need is a frame, burlap, an assortment of red and pink buttons, and a hot glue gun.

Step 1: Remove the glass from your frame.
Step 2: Cut the burlap down so it is about an inch wider all the way around the backing of the frame.
Step 3: Tape or glue the burlap around the edges of the backing.
Step 4: Arrange the buttons in the shape of a heart and hot glue in place.

We have a lot more projects to share!  Will you be our subscriber?
