Here is my first Valentines Day craft of the year. The idea is from this post over at Craftaholics Anonymous.
(Annie, the binoculars were for spying on the creepy van while wrapping the twine. That's right. IT'S STILL THERE.)
I think it turned out pretty well. Especially since this was my very first time using twine (I got a few slivers. Is that normal?).
As far as the finished product goes, I definitely like Linda's more. But until I can find a chunkier frame at a decent price, my red one will have to do.
I took a $5 walmart frame, spray painted it red, and distressed the edges. I AM SO PROUD OF MYSELF. I've never distressed wood before. I've been wanting to for weeks (I'm loving all the blogs featuring shabby chic furniture makeovers), and I had so much fun with my sandpaper.
Now, which project should I do next? I think I'm craving some Mod Podge. And then maybe some Burlap...
Happy Sunday everyone!
