$2 Homemade Valentines picture frame


My hubby found this $1 unfinished wooden frame at Michaels a few weeks ago...he tossed it in our cart, saying "you could probably do something cool with this for your blog". Challenge accepted :)

What you need:
  • cheap wooden frame ($1 from Michaels)
  • chalkboard paint (bought at Lowes...already had on hand, so $0 for me)
  • colorful ribbon ($1 ribbon - it was technically Xmas ribbon, so was 80% off)
  • Tacky glue
  • optional: various colored chalk
Step #1: paint 2 coats of chalkboard paint over entire picture frame. Wait about 10-20 minutes between coats

Step #2: Once paint is completely dry, lay ribbon across frame in desired pattern and cut accordingly. Draw a light line of tacky glue along the back of the ribbon and press onto frame in desired pattern. Wrap ribbon around the back of the frame and make sure it's glued well. Let dry.

Step #3: Insert a romantic picture of you and your significant other :)

Step #4: (optional!) With the chalk, write a love note to your Valentine and leave the new frame on their bedside table on February 14th!

Happy Valentine's Day everyone!
