Step 1. Cut a medium-sized heart on a piece of cereal box. This would depend on how big you want your frame would be.

Step 2. Using a lead pencil, trace the heart board on a piece of brown construction paper. Trace another one on the side of the first one and provide some space in between the two. The space in between would serve as the bridge of the eye frame.

Step 3. Draw a smaller version of the heart in the middle of each one. This should be identical to the bigger heart. The small heart hole will pave a way to the frame’s eye opening

Step 4. Cut the brown frame from the paper and make sure to have a bridge in between the two hearts.

Step 5. Cut the small hearts in the middle using small pointed scissors. This will create a hole in the frame now.

Step 6. Apply considerable amounts of white glue on the hearts and spread the glue evenly using the paint brush. The bridge of the heart frame should NOT be included in this process.

Step 7. Generously sprinkle red glitter on the hearts while the glue is still wet. Let the glue dry so that the glitter would firmly adhere to the body of the frame.

Step 8. Hot glue the red pipe cleaners on each end of the heart frame. This is the temple of the frame.

Step 9. Fold the temples of the frame into 90 degrees angle. Curve the free ends of the temple downwards to accommodate the shape of the ears.

The finished heart eye frame is a cute and fun way to celebrate the holiday. Have fun and Happy Valentine’s Day!
