Framed Heart Decor

One nice thing about Valentine’s Day is that it really can be celebrated for weeks. Growing up, my mom always called February the love month and we celebrated all month long.

So, keeping the tradition alive, I thought it would be fun to decorate with love.

This project is really easy and I love the way it turned out.

All you need is a frame, pretty paper (I used a silver sparkly piece), Eucalyptus and hot glue. You can buy a bouquet of Eucalyptus at any craft or floral store.

If you’ve ever twisted a petal off of Eucalyptus, you’ll find it looks just like a heart, making it a great Valentine’s craft material. Plus, it smells wonderful!

First, twist a bunch of the petals off of your Eucalyptus branch.

Then line a piece of cardboard with pretty paper and put it into a frame. Leave the glass out.

You can trace a heart onto your paper and then cover the outline by glueing petals over it.

Then just layer petals around and on top of each other until your heart is filled in. I purposely only used a tiny bit of glue so the ends would curl up. It makes it 3-dimensional that way.

Then prop or hang in your home where you can enjoy it all month (or year) long!
