The kiss is a symbol that’s as playful as it is romantic. We see its presence everywhere. From Dan Colen’s artwork to Erin Fetherston’s current collection, a kiss will never go out of style. Now it’s your turn to touch someone’s heart with DIY art.
If you’re like us, you’ve got oodles of lipsticks lying around in a variety of fun shades. So why not use them to make a Valentine for someone you adore? They say love is in the air…so hang it on the wall for all to see!
To create: Apply lipstick to your lips. We used an assortment from our favorite brands: Chanel, Dior, Estée Lauder and Maybelline. Kiss a piece of paper over and over until the color fades. Reapply if necessary or use a different shade and create layers of multi-colored smooches for your loved one. Finish off by placing your personalized artwork in a frame. P.S.- get creative with a cluster of frames in varying sizes.
If you love, love… then you will fall for our newest jams!
Love LOve LOVe LOVE!!!! This tutorial uses paper hole punches to create the butterflies, so you would be able to create any shape you’d like using hole punches. Maybe a bear shape for a nursery or bird shape would also be neat! Thanks Lolly Chops <3
So, I’m sure you guys remember that I had bought a ratty victorian style frame and that I had a project for it, well I’m happy to say that project is finally done. Granted, it’s nothing major, but for me- completing a task like this always makes me feel super accomplished since I’m not very artsy.
I took the original frame and spray painted two coats of white primer paint on it and then spray painted it with a turquoise. As for the purple velvet insert, I tossed that out because it had a really awkward smell and it was pretty tacky. I replaced the insert with plexiglas. (Which by the way is a real pain to work with when you have no tools. Also, don’t even listen to the people at Lowes when they tell you those little glass cutter hand tools will do the job- they won’t.) Justin cut out the glass for me at school, and I then painted it with a coat of primer, and then a few coats of the chalk board paint.
Overall, I’m really happy with the result. I don’t think it could have turned out better. I’m excited for some more fun projects like this. AND I cooked tonight.
Can you believe it? Home made chicken gnocchi soup from this Olive Garden recipe, and a home made apple pie! I’m pretty proud if I do say so myself. The soup was delicious, and the pie…well…I haven’t tried it yet, but the topping looks wonky because I’m incapable of making a perfect pie top.
