Are you tired of hearing about Valentine’s Day yet? Well, I hope not, because I have 3 super easy, quick crafts for you today. As I may have previously mentioned, I don’t do a ton of Valentine’s Day decorating, but as one of my fellow “boy-mom” friends pointed out, it’s the only time we get to decorate with pink and purple and hearts everywhere!
*For this heart wreath/door hanger, cut out 2 layers of burlap in whatever size/shape you desire.
*Using acrylic paint, paint your design on one of the burlap pieces. Be sure to put something underneath because the paint will soak through.
*Sew about 1.5-2″ in from the edge all the way around the heart, leaving about a 3″ gap that is not sewn.
*Stuff plastic bags (the ones you get from Target or the grocery story) inside until it reaches the desired puffiness.
*Sew up the hole.
Here you can see where I sewed, then frayed the edges slightly.
What do you do with all of those leftover conversation hearts? Make a picture frame of course! I actually made this several years ago, and it’s held up great. It’s missing 1 little heart in the upper right corner, but I can easily replace it.
*I purchased the pink frame on sale after Valentine’s Day. You could always paint a plain frame if you can’t find a red or pink one.
*Use hot glue to secure the hearts to the frame. Remove the glass and spray the entire frame with a clear matte spray paint to help preserve them. The flash on my camera faded some of the letters, but they are actually in pretty good shape!
I didn’t make these towels, but I thought they were cute, so I wanted to share them with you because that’s what I do. I share things I love with people I love! I picked up these cuties at Target this year, so hop on down to your local Tar-jay and check out their selection!
I hope this inspired your inner Valentine’s Day craft spirit!
