Step 1

Cut your desired length of wire with a wire cutter. (This will determine the height of your picture display.) We used 4 feet for ours.

Step 2

Before you begin, straighten the wire to make shaping easier.

Step 3

Wire heart frame full view

Mold the base of the display. Create one big circle and spiral the wire into little circles within that, as shown.

Step 4

After making 3 or 4 circles for the base, mold a straight vertical line.

Step 5

Bend the wire to form a heart and shape a tail in the back to keep pictures in place.

Step 6

Spray paint, let dry--then start enjoying your picture-perfect results!
