Wood Valentine Craft with Frame

Sharing is caring!

Easy Wood Valentine Craft

This DIY wood valentine craft is super easy to make, and because its wood, you can use it for several Valentine days.  and even more so if you already have a white frame.  The wood heart only takes about ten minutes to put together.   The Valentine wood heart is designed to be pretty and valentine themed but by avoiding red you can use it for Spring decor, or in a little one’s bedroom.

You will need a pre-cut heart that are available from Michaels or a dollar store.  This one is from Michael’s  and I using a coupon it was $4.50 in Canada.  I did see something similar at the dollar store, but for the two dollars difference I wanted the added texture in the wood.

I recently found a large frame at an auction for $10.  Wearing gloves I started by removing the icky smoke coated canvas.  The next step is washing the frame and hanging hardware.  Let it dry very well and then apply three coats of white chalk paint.  Its not an exciting project, but sometimes you just need to create some good back drops for other decor elements.

How to make an easy Wooden Heart Valentines Day Craft idea for your home

Painting the DIY Valentine Heart

The wood grain of this wood heart had almost panel like sections making it very easy to paint.  Instead of taping off the stripes I was able to cut the edges with a small paint brush.  I applied two coats of paint allowing it to dry between coats.  The plain sections were left as is.

Once the paint is dry, apply two coats of wax to all the surfaces of the Valentine heart.

Lay the painted frame onto a flat surface.  My heart had a metal hanger on the top.  If your doesn’t use a staple instead.  Leave a one foot tail, wrap the ribbon around the burlap on the heart and around the frame.  Then using the one foot tail and the second part of the ribbon, tie into a pretty bow.

I do really love the tradition pink blush colours  of Valentines, if given my choice I would have pinks and plum decor year around, Hubs is not a fan.  Its really fun to have an excuse to create all thing pretty and feminine for Valentines day, I hope you are able to find some time to enjoy it as well.

 

An easy to make Valentines craft for adult, a perfect backdrop for Valentine decoration.

I would love to hear what your Valentine celebrations consist of.   Do you do anything really special?

    1. Thank you Marie. That soft blue was a change from my typical pink lol

      Thank you, Colleen. It’s so easy especially if you already have a frame.

  1. I love the simplistic beauty of this! Pinned! #MM

    1. LeannaForsythe says:

      Thank you for pinning. Glad you like it, I tried to keep it simple so it can be used after Valentines.

    1. LeannaForsythe says:

      Thank you, Michelle, I bought it at either Hobby Lobby on holidays or Michaels. I love that soft blue colour on it.

  2. This is so cute Leanna, I love that the heart is two-tone hanging in the freshly painted frame. You scored on that frame too, I bet you’ll use that for more than just Valentines Day.

      Hi Toni. The thrift stores here are charging more than I will pay for large frames, especially the ornate ones. I was quite excited to find and fix this one up.

    1. LeannaForsythe says:

      Your right it would be very easy to make out of scrap wood. You could make a couple in various sizes and hang more than one in the frame.

  3. Really pretty idea, Leanna! I could see the ribbon changed out with tulle and used for a wedding too. Pinned ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. LeannaForsythe says:

      Thank you Marie. I hadn’t thought of it for a wedding but it would look pretty with the tulle. Great idea my friend.

  4. Love your wooden heart it looks very sweet in the frame.

    1. LeannaForsythe says:

      Thanks, Claire. It is so easy to make, I was happy to find a cut out the right size and skip working in the horribly cold garage. (-32 C outside) bleck lol

  5. My daughter would love this in her room! And it’s something even non-crafty folks like me can make ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. LeannaForsythe says:

      I purposely chose not to put pink on the heart so that it looked a little less like only Valentines. I think this would be really sweet in a girls bedroom. If she is school age you could place strings along the back for her to clip her valentine cards to.

  6. This is so cute. I like these fun little crafts for Valentine’s Day. It is lower key than Christmas.

    1. LeannaForsythe says:

      I totally agree. Valentines is very low key here, but I really enjoy the little crafts for the season.
