Valentine frame for a dollar

Easy $1 washi tape heart frameGood Valentine’s Day morning, friends! I hope you are planning on having a fun day, and that it possibly includes some sort of Valentine’s Day craft. I recently decorated a $1 heart frame using paint, paper tape (washi tape) and Mod Podge and it didn’t take long. If you need a craft to try today, this is a fun one. Here’s how I did it.

Gather These Supplies

IMG_7009Remove the back from your frame and paint the entire surface with white acrylic paint, including the back. Let dry.

IMG_7026Start in the center of your frame and place the washi tape down on the diagonal. You can do it horizontally or vertically as well – I chose to go diagonally.

IMG_7027Keep placing down washi tape and smoothing until the entire frame is full.

IMG_7028 Use a craft knife to trim the edges – it was way too difficult to cut, which is why I used the craft knife. Just place down on a craft mat.

IMG_7030Paint a layer of Mod Podge Super Gloss over the top. It acts as a varnish and gives a very shiny, smooth finish to a project. Don’t use it to glue paper down – just as a varnish. It might show brush strokes but it will self level.

Washi tape heart frameNot only was the frame made on a budget, but it was done in about 30 minutes. Easy, quick and inexpensive – now that is my kind of project!
