Filigree Heart Frame


By John A. Nelson
Cut by David Penman

With Valentine’s Day on the way, this graceful heart frame is a perfect way to show your significant other that you are thinking about them. The frame is beautiful when cut from an exotic hardwood. For youngsters, it can be cut from pine or plywood and painted for a more modern look.

The heart frame is sized perfectly for a locker or desk and is equally stunning enlarged and cut as a wall hanging. Stack cut the perimeter with a piece of colored acrylic for a romantic sun catcher. If you enlarge the pattern 135%, it is the perfect size for a 2″-diameter clock insert.
