Framed Valentine Hand Embroidery

Ever since I made Halloween framed embroidery for my Pinterest party I've been obsessed with them.
I made some from Christmas and I decided I needed some for each holiday.
They are quick and easy to make and I think they are super cute.
I think embroidery hoops are adorable, but I have a strange aversion to hanging things on my walls.
It's true. Ask Kara Noel.

You'll need:
Krylon Spray Paint
White Fabric
Red and Pink Embroidery Floss
Embroidery Needle
Embroidery Hoop
Glue Gun

I followed the same steps as I did with my framed Christmas embroidery.
I grabbed some cheap frames from the local dollar store.
Then grabbed some Krylon paint and spray painted the heck out of them - Kara Noel and Julie would be so proud!

I made a 4x6 and 5x7 and this time I cut the fabric piece 7x9 to make
sure I had a little bit more to work with when I was framing them.
I printed off some cute words - love and be mine - and since I was working
with white fabric I ditched the tracing paper and slipped it behind the
fabric and traced the words onto the fabric with a pencil.
I used the back stitch again because it gives a great fine line for tracing the words.

I did two different words, because I really like having a pair.
Boo. Eek.
Ho Ho Ho. Noel.
Love. Be Mine.

They turned out so cute and I think they would make great Valentines for friends!

I was thinking I should make a third.
What do you think?
What Valentine word comes to mind?

Let me know if you make some and please upload them to Flickr Group - I'd love to see them!!
