DIY Glitter Heart Canvas~ Easy Valentine’s Day Craft
I never used to decorate for any holiday except for Christmas. I have found myself wanting more and more to decorate for each season and/or holiday. As much as I want to make my house look cute for each holiday, I am not willing to pay a lot for decorations! Here is a cute, easy and thrifty craft that adds a little bit of seasonal charm without going over board.
You will need:
A canvas (mine is 8×10)
piece of paper
glue or mod podge
brush to apply mod podge
scissors to cut stencil
*Side note, canvases can be spendy. I found a pack of 6 at Ross for less then $8 for the pack.
Begin by cutting a heart out of your plain paper to make a stencil. I used regular printer paper and my canvas was 8×10 so I had to trim a little off of my paper to make it the same size as my canvas. I then folded it in half, and cut a heart out of the middle. Lay it down on your canvas and brush glue or mod podge in the open area. You will have to hold your stencil down a little bit, I used tape to help hold it, but it doesn’t hold very well. Once your heart is covered in glue or mod podge, sprinkle with glitter. I used a fine gold glitter like this one.
Remove your stencil and let it dry a little before displaying. Before you go to pick it up, be sure to tap off the extra glitter. If you can, tap it onto a piece of paper and pour it back into your glitter bottle for next time. That is it! Super simple and very pretty. Would look lovely on a plate stand for the season.
