Thanks to some Pinterest-inspiration my lovely little ladies and I decided to get crafty to decorate the house for Valentine’s Day.

Materials used:

  • 11×14 canvas
  • sponge paintbrushes
  • acrylic paints {red, dark pink, light pink, cream, and white}
  • sharpie marker
  • ribbon
  • staple gun or glue gun

paintWe painted the canvas in an ombre style beginning with cream and finishing with red; we let that dry for about an hour before starting the next step. To make our hearts, we used white and a contrasting color for each upside down hand-print.  (My littlest insisted her baby doll should practice her hand-prints too.) With a Sharpie I wrote the girls’ names & ages.  After the canvas completely dried, I used a staple gun to attach ribbon to the back, a glue gun would work too.

Our goal is to make more of these keepsakes to change out for each holiday.  Stay tuned as we get crafty for Saint Patrick’s Day.
