Hi guys! I hope you are all having a fabulous week! We are getting hit pretty hard with a winter storm here. So we are hunkering down and praying the power doesn’t go out. I thought I would share a last minute valentine with you all today. I picked up these little wooden hearts at JoAnns a few weeks ago to make Valentine pins with for my family. I loved the valentines I had in my round up last week with the mason jars and thought I would draw one for my little pins to fasten to. I think it turned out pretty cute…
Here’s What You Need:
*Small Wooden Hearts
*Martha Stewart Adhesive Stencils
*Paint Brush or Foam Pouncer
*Micron Pen (optional)
The first thing you need to do is paint the base layer of your hearts. Paint a few layers on the front and sides. Let dry completely.
Peel the stencil off of the backing and lay it on the heart where you like it. Smooth it down so it’s nice and stuck to the heart and paint can’t seep in.
Now grab a little paint on your paint brush and dab it all over the stencil area. Peel off the stencil and let the stenciled heart dry. Repeat with your other hearts.
Once your hearts are dry, lay them face down and glue the pin backs to the backside of your hearts. Let the glue dry completely.
Print out the printable and cut out the jars. Push the pin into the paper and back through. Close up the pin and you are ready to gift your valentines.
Aren’t they fun! I love any excuse to use my Martha Stewart stencils. I just adore them! These little pins are fun to make and really easy. You can totally customize them too with your colors and stencils that you use. If you are looking for even more design options, I saw these little heart pins at See Kate Sew this week. She leaves some of the wood exposed which is a really cool look too. I hope you guys enjoy the free printable! Have fun making your valentines! I’ll be back again next week with more fun DIY’s. Until then…
