Put a Little Love in a Frame

Just a little project.
Here's sneak peak before we begin.



Print the word "love" using letters from here.


Get a frame, or even just a piece of thick cardboard the size you want.
My frame(12X21)came from the thrift store more than a year ago. When I bought it it was stained with a redish stain and had a bird picture in it. Soon after it came home with me, I sprayed it with white primer while doing another project. It has since languished in storage (another word for leaning against the wall in a corner).



I cut out my letters and used some adhesive to affix to some of the same canvas fabric that I used for my bench project.





Place in frame and enjoy.





Some of my inspiration for this was pure accident and some came from these pillow cases. I can't stomach paying $56.00 or so for these, so this framed picture will have to do.

P.S. I have started working on my lamp. I have two conflicting ideas and can't decide which way to go. Have to decide!!!

Hi and thanks for stopping by my blog! Love your sign, what a great idea. Valentines is coming and my mother would love the sign. I need to get crackin' and make up something cute for her soon. Your bench looks great, good tip telling everyone about the canvas at hardware stores! Sometimes we have to think out of the box, right... Keep up the great inspiration! And, come back and visit me soon...

This is such a fun cute idea! I love how you just printed out the letters. It turned out great!

That's so creative. It looks so good too! How did you get it to hang on that fabric? I would have never thought of that, but it looks so good.

I need to create so bad it is killing me. It doesn't help when I come on over here and look at all the fabulous things that you have done. I love the frame and I love the bench and I love the 7 random things about you. Thanks for the concern. My husband is always impressed that I have friends all over the country. Thanks for the concern, and the inspiration! I must go and create my own stuff!
Have a fantastic weekend!
PS-I updated!
