Conversation Heart Photo Frame Ornament

It's hard to believe Valentine's Day is just around the corner. (Since we were traveling, our Christmas decorations didn't come down until two weeks ago.) Time has been flying by. And yet, some things feel like they were a lifetime ago. 

The photo I used for this project is a good example. Sometimes I feel like I blinked and my tiny baby grew up. On the other hand, it feels like a lifetime ago. Affiliate links below. 


Conversation Heart Photo Frame Ornament



Select a photo that is at least as large as the heart ornament. Trace the ornament on the photo, then cut it out. Set the photo aside. 

Lay out the conversation hearts along the edge of the ornament. I recommend using Heart 2 Heart candies instead of the much tastier traditional conversation hearts with the red printed messages. I'm concerned that the ink on those will run when you seal your project. Also, the Heart 2 Heart ones are double sided, so you get two choices of message for each candy. 

Remove the hearts, then glue the photo to the ornament.

Then glue the hearts in place. Let the glue dry completely. Apply 2-3 thin coats of sealant, allowing each to dry before adding the next. 

When your ornament is completely dry, hang it where it will brighten your day.
