Valentine's Day Decor: I heart U frames

Yesterday I shared with you these amazing Valentine's Frames made by Eighteen25:

(Thank you to the fabulous ladies at Eighteen25 for this amazing idea!) 

During our considerable snow storm I decided to break out my glitter {to be honest, the kindergarten teacher in me cringed so I used glitter glue instead!}

This is what it looked like all day on Wednesday-I needed something with some sparkle!

In the original Eighteen25 post, they used chip board letters. I didn't have any on hand, and was not going to venture out into the snow, so I decided to use what I had on hand. 

I started by printing the letters I & U out and cutting them out of an old box from the recycling bin. 

I had purchased some red frames at the Dollar Tree recently, and had three leftover that I figured would be perfect for this project. 

My helper was close by as I painted the letters red with acrylic craft paint, and then covered them in a layer of Stickles (I think it's called) red glitter.

It took quite a while for the glitter to dry, so I had them sit overnight. I then hot glued them down to the frames, onto scrapbook paper {pink, of course!}

At first I tried the frames inside my china hutch. Which I thought might look nice.

But, when I closed the doors, it blocked most of the beauty. Bummer.

They found a home on top of the hutch with other cherished family photos, for now anyway.
