Here's a project that's a conversation
heart in its own special way. It has been painted with chalkboard paints
so that you can write and doodle your own sentiments.
You will need two wood hearts-1 sold
and 1 filigree. Paint each of the hearts with Plaid's chalkboard paint.
I chose old school green and black, but Plaids chalkboard paint comes in
many colors. Pick your two favs! The solid heart will need the back
painted as well.
Adhere the filigree heart to the solid
heart with thick craft glue. It helps to set a book on top of the layers
to keep the pieces flat while the glue sets up.
Doodle on the heart with colored
chalks. Add small hearts, polka dots, scallops, stripes and more.
Painting the back of the heart makes
the chalkboard reversible! How about cutting a heart from a small sponge
to act as an eraser?
Now it's time to erase and repeat.
This would make a fun teacher valentine for sure!
