Sweet Valentines Day


A Valentine project anyone can do!


I love seasonal greenery and flowers

This galvanized bucket is very deep, too deep to let the flowers peek over the top.  I fixed that with risers of old clay pots turned upside down.  The advantage is the pots will still absorb water from the bucket and allow the plants to drink!  

I admit I am a dollar store junkie.  They have so many wonderful things that can be used to create awesome stuff!  A few tweaks and a little creativity - WOW.

I got the (balsa) wood hearts (dollar store) in different sizes and I used my paper stash along with Alene's clear glue to cover the wood.  I had a thin wooden dowel rod and bought another one, (49¢) at Michaels (or Ace Hardware, Home Depot, Lowes, etc).  Notice I used a red doily, they come in many sizes and colors at the dollar store too!  I trimmed mine to fit.

If you cannot find the wood hearts, you can cut foam core board from the dollar store.  It comes in large size sheets in the craft or school supply area.

You can paint the backside of the hearts and paint the dowel rods with acrylic paint (less than $1.00).

I started out wanting to use E6000 to glue the hearts together and the rods to the backs.  However, they are so lightweight I did not need to use that.  E6000 is great for sturdy adhesion however IT takes long to dry.  I glued the hearts together with Alene's clear glue and I actually used clear packing tape to affix the rods to the back of the hearts.  This is handy if you are going to store them and need to dismantle to lay flat.  


I have many hangers and nails in my garage walls on which I hang seasonal items and seasonal artwork. Saves space and it's cheery!  Happy creating!!

Happy Heart Day from Jean and Eddie
