How to Make Wooden Valentine Hearts
1) Paint the wood slice valentines
Paint the hearts with acrylic craft paint and a foam brush. I chose two different heart designs from Target – a plain wood heart and a layered wood heart. I chose a light pink and bright red paint for my hearts, but you use your favorite colors!
2) Paint wood letters
If you’d like to spell some messages on your hearts like “XO” or “I heart you” you can add them with wood craft letters like I did. Or you could use a stencil, vinyl, or letter stickers to add words to your hearts!
3) Glue artificial flowers to hearts
Add a couple artificial roses to the base of your heart. Position them so they look good when you stand the hearts up on their sides.
4) Glue wood letters to hearts
Use hot glue to add your painted letters to the heart. Remember to position them so they look good when the heart is standing up on its side!
I love how this Valentine’s Day art turned out. Such an easy craft for a rainy afternoon! I styled these hearts on my fireplace mantel along with these sweet little love birds from Target!
