diy: first dance lyrics frame

Today I wanted to share a quick and easy project I completed over the weekend.  My husband and I will be celebrating our wedding anniversary soon so I thought this project was fitting.

I have been wanting to frame a picture of our first dance for awhile now and just had not gotten around to it yet.  After looking around Etsy and Pinterest, I saw some great DIY projects and ideas using the lyrics from the first dance and thought I would put one together myself.

Here is the finished product...

Our first dance was to Van Morrison's "Into the Mystic."  Last summer, I framed a portion of the lyrics to hang in our guest room {see full post here}.  

This project was relatively simple.  I picked up a frame at Home Goods that had plenty of space on the mat frame around the picture.

Then I used a blue calligraphy pen that I had left over from a previous project to write the lyrics on the mat by hand.

I wanted to keep the writing small so I actually ended up having to write the song lyrics more than once.  

The frame is now hanging in our home office (which is a work in progress but will hopefully be done soon).
