Copycat Valentine's

I saw this Valentine's heart frame by Blooming Homestead and my heart stopped. True love.  Modern, yet not, totally me.  I was determined to replicate this, with my own interpretation (or based on what materials I could find).  I'm telling you, if my area had a Hobby Lobby and my TJMaxx had that same frame, we might have some copyright/stealing/cheating issues between us...I loved it that much.
So I did my rounds of Marshalls and TJMaxx's and found this lovely grey similar frame for $7.99 and some glitter hearts at Michael's for $2.99 for the pack.

I took off the string and using a card stock cut to the size of the frame, I measured out how many hearts would actually fit in the frame and ended up with this. I then hot glued them to the card stock making sure to keep them as straight as possible.

 Is this crazy, I found little glitter Easter eggs...Oh Blooming Homestead what you've done to me.

What cute Valentine's ideas have you 'borrowed'?  Any plans for the weekend? I'm trying to convince my husband to help me make a bench for the foot of my bed. I'm not sure if my convincing is working.

Join  us Saturdays at tatertotsandjello.com for the weekend wrap 
 up           party!

Very fun- I took a spin on the "book page wreaths" that we were seeing all around the holidays, and gave it a look that can be personalized to all seasons- I just posted it today, actually:

Really cute, makes me wish that I'd gotten "into" VDay this year! But I did do some Mardi Gras decor, so maybe that redeems me!
