Any wood frame will do – I love the ones that you can get from the craft store for $1!

Painting a wood frame with white acrylic paint

Paint the frame with Wicker White. You’ll need to give it several coats on both sides. Let it dry.

Run your heart Duck Tape down one side, and then run the red Duck Tape across the front. Cut with scissors.

Trimming Duck Tape with a craft knife

I had a little bit hanging over, so I trimmed the edge with a craft knife.
