Here’s a quick and easy wall décor project you can do with the kids, just in time for Valentine’s Day. It makes a unique gift for any of the special Valentines on your child’s list. Be as creative as you want, anything goes. The most important part of this project is to have fun and not to eat all the candies before getting started!
What you’ll need:
- Valentine candies of any kind
- Shadow box picture frame
- Glue gun
- White card stock or foamcore
Step 1: Take the frame apart and install the glass at the front of the frame. Add the shadowbox liner into the frame.
Step 2: Using the backing as a template, cut a piece of card stock or foamcore of the same size. Make a grid or other creative design on your card stock and glue the hearts. A simple “I love you” spelled out with candies would be quite cute too. Don’t forget to have the kids sign their masterpiece before framing, it’ll make a great keepsake. Let the glue dry before inserting into the frame.
Step 3: Carefully place the decorated card stock into the frame. Add the backing, making sure the picture wire faces up so your frame sits correctly on the wall. Press the metal tabs down to secure your artwork. And you’re done!
About the frames:
We used white frames and mats but any color would work. A red background would be a sweet variation for Valentine’s Day.
