Adorable Family Valentine's Day Craft
We know that all of our Do-A-Dot Art! fans LOVE our free printables! (Are you signed up?) However, we want to showcase another amazing way to use Do-A-Dot Art! as a family to decorate your home for Valentine's Day! This is an easy family project that does require the help of a big kid or an adult. Let's make a Valentine's Day Garland!
💗 Step ONE: Gather your materials!
You will need:
- Our printable heart template, printed on heavy cardstock, for the best results
- A Pencil
- Some twine/string/ribbon
- A newspaper
- Your Favorite Do A Dot Art! Valentine's Day colors!
- Doily Hearts or another backing for some of your hearts
- Heart punch or you can create a smaller template or free-hand smaller hearts if you want varied sizing!
💚 Step TWO: Spread out your newspaper and get busy dotting! You can gently drag or swirl, overlap colors, and create adorable patterns with your Do-A-Dot Art! Markers!
💙 Step THREE: While you let your littles do the dottin', you can cut out our heart templates!
🧡 Step FOUR: After you allow your Dot Masterpieces on the newspaper to dry, use your heart templates to track and cut out your Do-A-Dot Art! newspaper hearts!
💛 Step FIVE: Cut out additional hearts in whatever sizes you prefer
💜 Step SIX: Attach any backing, in our case, we thought it would be adorable to use lacy doily hearts for our letter hearts!
❤️ Step SEVEN: Choose a phrase to write on your hearts if you like!
Some great ones:
- YOU ARE LOVED
- HAPPY HEARTS
- I LOVE YOU
- GAL PALS
🤍 Step EIGHT: Use a hole punch or tape, attach your adorable hearts to your garland string of choice, and hand or drape your adorable Valentine's Day Garland anywhere you like!
Ideas for placement:
- Kid's Bathroom Mirror
- Entry Table
- Kitchen Island
- Fireplace Mantel
- Playroom Bookshelf
- Chalkboard/Bulletin Board
