Paint the frame with watered down white paint and let dry. Sand and give an antique look to painted frame with a dark brown inkpad and set aside.
Paint the top and sides of the heart with cardinal red; add lipstick red to center area of the heart. While still wet, scrunch up a paper towel and dab all over the heart; allow paint to dry.
Position your stencil onto the heart and use a sponge dabber to apply small amounts of white paint over the stencil. Lift stencil up and allow paint to dry.
Ink edges of heart
Wipe your dark brown ink pad over the edges of the heart; smudge with paper towel.
Insert heart into frame
Lay the heart inside the frame and wrap jute around the heart and through the chicken wire 3 times. Knot the jute and trim off excess.
Add moss and mini hearts
Using your hot glue gun, glue moss along the bottom of the frame. Glue a mini heart to each corner of the frame.
