{Craft} Valentine Ombre Heart Decor

I haven't really ever had Valentine's decorations.
I never really liked the holiday until I had kids.
Now it is a lot more fun...
So I wanted decor to make the holiday more exciting for the kids.
The color palette I am going for is Faded Brown/Tan, various shades of Pink, and White.
My first decoration can be seen HERE...
Below is the second...

 The Valentine Ombre Heart Frame

I have seen these ornate picture frames all over the blogosphere. 
I wanted one to add to my own collection...
So when Hobby Lobby had them on sale for 50%, I got one.

This project only cost me the price of the frame.
The paint chips I used for the hearts were free, 
I borrowed my Mom's off-set heart punch,
And used chipboard I already had on hand.

The greatest thing about this project is...
I can use this frame for multiple holidays/decor.
Autumn Leaves, 
Easter Eggs,
Baby Showers...
A very versatile project.

The Ombre Hearts are easy to put together.
Use the paper punch and paint chip strips...
Tape them to the chipboard using glue dots...
Slip the chipboard into the frame...
And you are ready to go with your custom decor.
