Good Morning and Happy Martin Luther King Jr. Day! Take the time to love your community and help it blossom. I hope you all had a marvelous weekend! Well, beautiful people, we’ve reached the end of the Top 5 Valentine’s DIY Crafts. Coming in at number 5 of our Valentines DIY craft it’s better known as, The Floral Heart Wreath.

  • Metal heart
  • Paint
  • Paintbrush or sponge
  • Hot glue gun

Note: Most materials you can obtain from The Dollar Tree. The ribbon and floral came from a wedding bouquet I caught! ( Fun fact: My fiance caught the garter.)

Step 1: Remove tag from the wreath. Prepare a mixture of paint and water to give the wreath a whitewash effect. Using a paintbrush, begin to paint the wreath. 

Step 2: Wrap the ribbon around the wreath. You can do as much or as little as you like, and then secure it with hot glue.

The caught bouquet is now a beautiful wreath!

Step 3: Select and arrange your florals in a pattern you find appealing to your taste. After you found the layout that speaks to you secure with more hot glue.

My Top 5 Valentine’s DIY Crafts: Part 3

My Top 5 Valentine’s DIY Crafts: Part 3

Hello my fellow crafters! Here’s to a new day and a lovely craft to share. Today, I’m sharing my third craft. Hurray, we’re halfway there! Making each craft has been fun and frustrating at the same time, (my son barely lets me do anything, lol.) Today Valentines craft is called, “Jar of hearts,” just like the song by Christina Perri.

Jar of hearts

Materials & Tools:

  • Glass jar (I used 2 from Dollar Tree)
  • Twine (optional)
  • Glittery Vase Fillers (optional)
  • 1 construction paper or vinyl
  • Paint
  • Paint brush
  • Hot glue gun
  • Gluesticks
  • Knob(s)

Step 1: Wipe your jar clean (soap and water, or rubbing alcohol will do.)

Step 2: Fold your paper in half. Use scissors to cut-out a heart shape. If you are doing more than one jar, cutout as many hearts as you need. Also, if you need to draw your heart out, go for it!)

Note: If using paper take tape to adhere to both the heart and the jar. This will be tricky when it comes time to paint your jar. I suggest using vinyl to avoid getting paint between the heart and the glass.
I mixed my white and dark pink to get my light pink color. It took 2 coats of paint.

Step 4: Once your heart is attached. Choose your paint color and begin to paint your jar.

Step 5: After allowing the jar to dry, remove the heart. Since I use paper, paint got in between the jar and the heart. It wasn’t too bad, I just scraped the excess paint off by using a toothpick.

Step 6: This next step is optional. Fill the jar with a filler. You can use rocks, sand, lights, or even add a candle. 

Finish jars of hearts, so I thought!

Step 7: With or without the lid while using hot glue, you can choose to wrap twine or a ribbon around the top, and then tie it into a bow. 

Now pose for the camera. . .click, click! You’re Jar of hearts is complete to add to your beautiful Valentine’s day decor. Be sure to send your pictures of your crafts via social media or email. I would to see them! What would you do differently? Let’s chat in the comments below!  

If you haven’t already have a peak at craft #1 and craft # 2. Until tomorrow my loves!

My Top 5 Valentine’s Day DIY Craft: Part 2

My Top 5 Valentine’s Day DIY Craft: Part 2

Hey loves! Who’s ready for day two of the Valentine’s day decor diy? Me, me! If you’re new here, welcome! Today, I’ll be sharing my next Valentine’s day craft. I’m calling it “the heart box!” Shall we begin…

The Heart Box

Materials & Tools:

  • Art decor box (dollar tree find)
  • Metal heart (retrieved mines from a dollar tree sign)
  • Twine (dollar tree)
  • Ribbon (dollar tree)
  • Paint (your choice)
  • Paint Brush 
  • Hot Glue Gun 
  • Gluesticks
  • Sandpaper or Sanding Block
Decor box found at The Dollar Tree in the Valentine’s Day seasonal section.

To get started, take the box and scrap the flower off (your box may differ as there are different prints sold at The Dollar Tree.) I used scissors to complete this process, but I suggest using a putty knife. Grab sandpaper or a sanding block and sand the area so that it’s smooth. Be sure to wipe the area clean, free of dust. 

Sanding to smooth the area. Don’t forget to wipe the residue off.

Next, I mixed my three paints together as I did in my previous post (see here) to get my desired pink color. Use a paint brush to brush on the paint, then allow to dry.

After drying, add a dab of  hot glue to secure the tip of the twine to the back of the box. Next, wrap the twine around 4 times. Cut, and then glue the twine to secure in place. Repeat for the remaining 3 sides. 

Applying hot glue to the metal heart, place it to the center of the box. Cut your desired length of the ribbon of your choice and make it into a bow. Add a dab of hot glue and place the bow at the top of the box. There’s your beautiful Valentine’s Day diy decor piece! Another simple and easy win!

I hope you all enjoyed! If you haven’t already, be sure to check out “The Love Sign” in my previous post. Tomorrow, I will introduce my next diy Valentine’s Day decor! Until next time loves!

My Top Valentine’s DIY Crafts: Part 1

My Top Valentine’s DIY Crafts: Part 1

Roses are red. Violets are blue. Love is here and forever true. 

Aww love…love is in the air, is it not? Today, I’m going to share one of my top 5 Valentine’s diy crafts that was crafted over the weekend. The other crafts will be shared over the next few days. Each one is inexpensive, simple, and easy to do. Majority of the materials are found at Dollar Tree. So let’s get started!

The love sign

Materials & Tools:

  • Twine (if desired)
  • Paintbrush
  • 1 wood board (this board came from Home Depot …it was leftover from a previous project)
  • Paint tray
  • Paint (color of your choice)

Since I didn’t have a pink that I preferred I mixed white chalk paint with a magenta pink and added a little orange to get the lighter pink hue I applied to the sign.

While allowing the board to dry completely, I sketched out the lettering “L-O-V-E” onto 4 sheets of paper.

Sketch out the letters, and then laid the paper flat on the board to lightly trace over with a pencil.

After the board dried, I then laid each sheet onto the board and lightly traced over the letters one at a time with a pencil, so it will show the imprint on the board. 

After removing the paper, I then treced over the letters with a sharpie paint pen.

Next, remove the paper and outlined over the imprint with a sharpie oil based paint pen in gold, and then filled in the letter. Repeat for the remaining letters. 

For the finishing touch, I wrapped twine around and tie it into a bow. If you would like to be more creative add lights, ribbons, and/or floral to add more beauty. 

Sweet and simple! Until the next craft my darlings!
