Va "L" entine Plaque

So I've been busy working on a bunch of projects, but none are quite at a point where I can post the finished results....in the meantime, I am getting excited about decorating for Valentine's Day. 

Here's something cheap and easy that I found over at Craftomaniac the other day...


So easy to make!  Go to your Goodwill and grab an old frame.  Spray it with Rustoleum Blossom White....antique it with glaze or stain (basically grab an old t-shirt, dip it in the stain and rub it on and then wipe it off!)......

Take the old cardboard backing of your Goodwill picture and cover it with burlap...hot glue the burlap to the cardboard.

Find a letter "L" at your craft store...it can be wooden or cardboard.  Find a-dor-able scrapbook paper and cut to trim it to your letter.  Grab your mod podge...brush a layer on your letter and then brush a layer over the top.....

Add a bow and a button....glue onto the letter and glue the letter onto your burlap frame.  So totally easy!!

Don't you love how Jen accessorized her glassware with random Valentine's stuff?  And those cool black damask balls?  Napkins mod podged onto styrofoam balls!  Her tutorial can be found HERE. 

I bet you could find really cute heart-covered ones for Valentine's day....the only problem is that the styrofoam balls are expensive.....I guess that's where you use a coupon!

.....Here's a sneak peek of what's been  consuming my time.....




...the board on the wall is a hint of what I'm doing!  It looks soooo different!
