The unique Home Sweet Home Frame Kit includes wooden pieces and coordinating papers and die-cuts that come together to create a delightful year-round d├ęcor piece. Use the die-cut shapes to decorate the 14 wood circle pieces in a variety of ways. Your decorated circles can then be swapped out throughout the year to mark special occasions and changes in season!

You save 20% when you purchase the Home Sweet Home Frame Kit, but you can also order the individual components separately in case you want additional circles, die-cuts, frames, or just the wood HOME sentiment!
