Today, the beautiful women over at Kindred Grace invited me in to pull up a chair and put down my pen at their place. You can read my guest post, Love is Like That, here. It’s all about the tough words of 1 Corinthians 13. If you’ve ever grappled with the definition of true love–and found yourself lacking–you’ll want to join me there.
Part of the requirements of this post was providing a graphic to go with it. So I stole some of the kids’ puffy heart stickers and quickly made a little Heart Art to use as the background of the graphic above.
I don’t have a lot of Valentine’s Day decorations, so this was a nice addition to our sparse red-and-white themed mantle. And, it was super quick and easy (read: cheap).
Here’s what you need to make one of your own:
Foam heart stickers (I got a tub of these at the craft store)
1 5×7 canvas
Spray paint (I used white, but I’m kind of itching to do one in pink or turquoise)
1) Simply arrange the puffy heart stickers however you like. I could fit two rows of three hearts on my canvas. I doubled up some heart stickers because I wanted a nice shadow effect on the canvas.
2) Once you’re satisfied with your arrangement, peel off the backs of the stickers and affix them to the canvas.
3) Spray paint! You may need several coats. Try not to breathe.
4) Once the paint is dry, you can finish the canvas by framing it out with ribbon. A little dot of glue on the corners is all you need. I added a little button on top because I got a little sloppy with the glue. Some people should not be allowed to handle molten glue.
That’s it! Happy Valentine’s Day to me!
