Instructions

Take ready made wooden hearts. Paint several of them in different colors (red/white/pink).

Then pick out a photograph (using a copy of one would be best).

Start with the larger hearts that you have painted and glue them directly onto the front of the picture making a frame.

It is best to use a photo that has a focal point but also some background that you can cover up with the wooden hearts.

Then continue to glue other hearts (smaller ones) on top of the larger ones until the entire picture is covered and basically “framed”.

Once the glue totally dries turn it over and glue magnets to the back of the photo. After that dries mount the picture/frame onto your fridge.

A visual image would be best to explain this technique but it is quite cute and would also make a good gift.
