Framed Button Hearts: A Valentine’s craft for kids!
We made a cute little craft today. Ours aren’t quite as gorgeous as the ones that were the inspiration behind them. Check out THESE pretty little numbers ! Did you heart skip a beat like mine did? Aren’t they over-the-top adorable? As soon as I saw them, I started thinking about how we were going to make them with materials that I had on hand (read: I was not about to go out and buy wooden frames, and as much as I LOVE the look of the fabric background, I thought it might be easier if we stuck with paper).
and this is what we used to make ‘em.
I’d originally planned to paint popsicle sticks for the frame, but the weather was gorgeous, and we have all this new, fluffy snow, and we just wanted to get outside, and enjoy the morning, so at the last minute, to save time, I decided we’d use these skinny coloured sticks. Not sure what they’re technically called, but I have a ton of them, and they’re already coloured, and they’re vibrantly coloured. They didn’t exactly give us the framed effect I was shooting for, but what the heck…
What are you crafting for Valentine’s Day?
