I don’t know about you but when it comes to giving a gift, I’m always looking for something unique, special and intrinsically me! This year, make a DIY project with room for creativity! Looking for inspiration? Try making a Valentine’s Day Photo Frame for your special someone!
This craft is easy to create!
-A wooden photo frame (new or one you have around this house- edges should be smooth)
- Red Hemp Thread
- Natural Cross Stitch Fabric Linen
To make this craft, simply trace the out line of the photo frame onto the fabric.
Cut the fabric about a 1/2″ from the lines of your tracing. In the center area, cut a snip into the angle of the frame so that this part of the fabic will easily fold around the edges.
Spread a thin layer of glue on your photo frame.
Glue flat against the frame to hold in place and be sure to smooth out the surface with your fingers. Fold the fabric around the edges of the frame for a finished look.
Next, using the red hemp thread, create twisty/fun designs around the frame, gluing the thread down as you move along. Add embellishments to the frame by gluing them to the thread. Lay frame flat and let dry.
Insert a picture of your loved one and present your hand crafted frame as a gift!
