Use your favorite pink and red paper to create valentine decor – I used a $1 frame and Mod Podge, and I love the finished product!
My friend gave me a sheet of beautiful Ikat themed paper and I knew I needed to use it. Have you ever come in contact with a craft supply like that?
You know, that pretty thing you must have. A lot of times those supplies go into the stash, but not with this paper. It was too pretty!
I actually loved the colors for Valentine’s Day and the interesting pattern, so I decided that my first project would be a frame (I got a huge sheet of the paper), and that is what you see above.
It’s a little bit rock n’ roll, but I love it. If you like my valentine decor too, see how I made it below.
Valentine’s Day Decor
Gather These Supplies
- Wood frame
- Martha Stewart Crafts Acrylic Paint – Camellia Pink, Habanero, Pink Dahlia
- FolkArt Acrylic Paint – Pure Gold
- Mod Podge Satin
- Mod Podge Dimensional Magic – Glitter Gold
- Wood hearts – 1 large and 3 small

I used one of those $1 frames from the craft store. Don’t you love those? Place your frame face down on the back of the paper and trace.
Carefully cut out the paper using the scissors and set aside.
Paint the edges and back of the frame with several coats of Habenero (paint the inside edges too). Let dry.
Paint the wood hearts with the remaining colors – you know, if you like wood hearts. Let dry.
Mod Podge the paper to the frame. Use a medium coat of Mod Podge and spread over the entire frame. Smooth the paper down and let dry for 15 – 20 minutes.
Add a coat of Mod Podge over the top and let dry. Add a second coat and let dry.
Glue the hearts to the frame as shown using craft glue. Let dry.
Add Dimensional Magic to the tops of the hearts and let dry overnight, keeping the frame flat.
I don’t know these lovely folks in the frame, but hey, it’s for photography purposes. I still need to pick a photo. But am I happy with the finished project? Yes! I love my new Ikat frame!
