Conversation heart picture frame tutorial

I wiped up this fun creation today while I should have been cleaning for my in-laws.
How could I resist once the idea was in my head I couldn't rest until I made it.

So Here is what you need

a wooden picture frame
something to paint with
paint
white school glue
a clear glaze to seal and preserve the hearts
and conversation hearts

First

Lightly paint the frame
it should dry super quick.

Apply glue to the frame and spread it around.

Now for me this was the hard part.
decide how you want the hearts to look and glue them on.

Once you are done gluing the hearts let the glue dry for about an hour
Then take the frame out side and spray the clear coat on the frame.

Next add trim you might like if you want or leave it plain.
Now just find the perfect pic or quote and give it to your favorite Valentine.
Hope you like it and if you make one let me know I would love to see it.
