Glass Valentine Art

I was on a bit of a mission yesterday. I have a stock pile of things I want to work on and tackled a couple yesterday. One was a pillow cover made from an old sweater which I will NOT be showing on the blog. It was a bit of a craft fail. After that I had to supervise the kids while they did playdough to keep them from sticking in the vent in the refrigerator like they have done in the past. I came up with this quick project using supplies in the craft dresser.

Start with an old frame. This one is a little 4x6. Some scrapbook paper, colored glass circles, glue. I ended up using the glue gun instead of the E6000.

Remove the glass from the frame and trace it onto the scrapbook paper. Cut it out and put it in the frame.

Like so

Next glue your glass beads to the glass. We did a heart shape for Valentine's Day.

It will look something like this when you are done. I thought it was a cute little heart. Sweet Pea was not so convinced.


Pull off all those little glue strings and threads and display!


  1. I love the heart as an accent! cute! I am highlighting this at somedaycrafts.blogspot.com.
