Happy Valentine’s day, everyone! Kath and I don’t have a huge art project planned, we just want to share with you a quick way to paint hearts.
Things you’ll need:
- Toilet paper roll (empty please!)
- Acrylic Paint (any color is fine, but for Valentine’s day, pinks, reds, and purples are nice)
- Paper (or a card. Anything you plan on putting hearts on)
Step 1: Push the top of the empty paper towel tube down into a heart shape.
Step 2: Use the brush to apply the paint around the rim of the tube (in our example, we use silver)
Step 3: Push the painted tube onto the paper. (not hard, just firmly.)
Step 5: Lift the tube gently. If the heart is unfinished in some places, use the brush to fill it in.
Step 6: Repeat if desired. Feel free to fill in the heart with paint.
That’s it! Now you have a fun way to add hearts to anything! If you want to learn about how Valentine’s day came to be, and how much people spend on it, here’s a link:
