Valentine’s Day is now less than a month away. I don’t normally decorate all the much for it but with the girls getting a little older, and now realizing and understanding things more, it is more fun to be able to enjoy it more seeing it through their eyes.
I have a craft for you today for Valentine’s Day and I decided to not make the traditional red, pink, purple and went with the trend of white, black and gold.
I love how it came out and it is so super easy!
This is how you can make your own.
-Wooden Heart (I bough this last year at Target in the dollar section but I’m sure you can find something similar at a craft store)
-Acrylic Paint in the colors of your choosing
-Round Pounce Brushes
Paint the heart the base color of your choosing. This came plain and I forgot to take a picture of it before I painted it. I was just a little too ready to craft! lol
Using gold metallic paint and round pounce brushes, make polka dots on the heart.
You don’t have to make dots, you can leave it plain or add stripes- whatever!
I then used the back end of a regular paint brush and added really small dots to the heart.
Let dry completely.
Using a pencil, lightly draw the word or phrase you want to add to your heart.
I decided to use “XO” on my heart.
When I had my pencil lines how I wanted them, I used a black Sharpie paint pen to write the letters.
Once the paint is dry, erase any pencil lines you may still see.
If you don’t feel confident in your ability to draw the letters yourself you could always use a stencil OR cut out the letters in vinyl and apply them.
And that’s it!!
My heart already came with a twine string to hang it by but if the one you buy doesn’t you can always add some ribbon or twine to the back of it to hang it.
I love that I went the non traditional route.
Now to decide where to hang it and if I am going to make more black and gold Valentine’s Day items! 🙂
