Introduction: Heart of Glass Wall Art

Watching these paper hearts reflect through the glass has never been more exciting, especially with this Valentine's Day wall art!

Step 1: Materials

For this unique gift idea, you will need:

  • glass from a 5x7 inch picture frame
  • wooden frame
  • red 3D puff paint
  • flat back rhinestones
  • hot glue
  • white paint
  • Mod Podge
  • large paint brush and / or foam brush
  • paper hearts

Step 2: Lay Down Hearts

First, carefully remove the glass from the frame (if you haven't done so already). Then, lay down some paper hearts on a layer of Mod Podge. Add another coat on top to seal, and let dry.

Step 3: Decorate the Frame

Next, paint the frame white. Then, once the paint dries, you can decorate it however you want! I used red puff paint, and rhinestones to match the color scheme of the paper hearts!

Step 4: Add Glass to Frame

Finally, attach the glass to the back (not decorated front) of the wooden frame, making sure that it fits.

Step 5: Done!

Now, this wall art can be used as a gift for someone for Valentine's Day (or any other occasion) or it can be displayed anywhere that needs a little love!

Note: I added a 5th heart in the middle, because I didn't want it to look so empty!
