Holiday Themed Frame

I got a great idea for a holiday themed frame project here.

Now most of the time when I see something on a blog I think to myself "I could make that," but I rarely do.  This time I did!

I bought an open frame from Hobby Lobby.  I found the clips in the scrapbooking section of Hobby Lobby and the wire in the jewelry section.  I found the screw eyes in the frame section at Michael's.

This is the first one I made.  It is too small, I think.

The second one I made was for my friend Jenny.  Her favorite holiday is Valentine's Day and her birthday was Monday. 

Here is what the back looks like.

Mike drilled tiny holes but I also think you could start the hole with a nail and then put the screw eye in once the starter hole was made.

The wire is jewelry wire that was strung tightly across.

I made Jenny enough paper hearts to fill all 30 clips.  I also made her cardstock that says Happy Valentine's Day.

I can just see it at Christmas time filled with paper ornaments.  Or at Easter with flowers and bunnies!
Or with your Instagram photos!

I cut my paper hearts out using Amy Butler paper from Michael's and my Sizzix die cutter.
