Valentine’s Day Craft – Ombre Tabletop Heart Art

Check out this super cute Valentine’s Day art I made for my entryway – I just love it!  It’s one of those projects that looks even better in real life than in pictures – I wish you could come on over and see how cute it is!

And then you would see that I still have all of my Christmas Cards on display….  I just love seeing them and can’t bring myself to take them down yet!

I have the tutorial for the ombre heart art on down…. but also, one of the things I want to do a little more of this year is video.  dun dun dun.

So… look – – a Valentine’s Craft, with a video! It was made via Hangout On Air – which means it was one-take, live, no editing.  Enjoy 6 minutes of me rambling to myself about crafting this cute Ombre Heart Art:

This all started with some amazing paper sent to me from American Crafts – the texture is great, and the glitter sheets were awesome – I wanted to showcase the paper, and this specimen art was a perfect project.

>

First I grabbed a plain frame and gave it a quick coat of paint…

I then cut a piece of the corrugated white glitter paper, and placed that in the frame (with the plexiglass removed).  And here’s where I stopped taking step-by-step pictures – blogger fail!

Sorry!

BUT, I can walk you through it.  I punched the hearts out of the paper using a punch, but you could hand-cut them if you want.  I used 4 different shades of pink/red, lightest ones on top and the darkest on bottom.

>

After punching them out, I folded each heart in half to give them dimension.  Then I used hot glue generously along the fold and placed it onto the white paper.  Just glue down each heart and that’s it!  See how they stick out – love that:

A fun and simple Valentine craft – just the kind I love!!
