Framed Beaded Heart


I wanted to make something easy & quick for my Valentine's Day decor.

Lately, I've been trying to use crafting supplies that i already have because, lets be honest, I have way.too.much and too many unfinished projects.  Time to save some money and start finishing stuff!

SO...I pulled out these bags of glittery and shimmery pony beads! 

I've had them since i was like 12.

Saving them for later...

I guess now is later!


Separated out lots of red, pink, & purple onesP1110094

I used an 8x10 flat canvas and traced my heart shape on it:P1110092

Then I started hot gluing on the beads starting with the outer border


and then filling it in


Popped it into an 8x10 frame without the glass that was already painted red (sweet!).  

Voila! P1110109
