DIY Valentines Day Conversation Hearts

This is the perfect Valentines Day craft: it's super cheap, easy to do, and turns out adorable! 

I love the little conversation hearts that come out around Valentines Day. They are so cute! I found a way to make my own fake hearts to display for the holiday (and I won't have to worry about anyone eating them!!!)

I found these plain wooden hearts at AC Moore for only 79 cents each. Score! I bought three.

The rest of the supplies I had at home: paint, paint brush, and a stencil. I used Martha Stewart high gloss craft paint in three Valentines Day colors.

First thing I did was paint the hearts a base color 
Note: This is NOT a good craft to do with three year olds! I did this while baby-sitting my neice and after leaving her unattended for literally 5 minutes there was red paint EVERYWHERE. That's why my purple heart is a little wonky, she clumped on tons of paint and it dried before I noticed!!

After the paint is dry I laid out my letter stencils.  I used these awesome Martha Stewart stencils that are sticky on the back but you can reuse them over and over again!

I dabbed on my paint and pulled off the stencil while the paint was still wet. Here's my finished result!

Adorable! So I made another...

And another!

These little hearts will add a ton of color to my Valentines decor this year

 You can see how my purple one got a little wonky here..oh well. Lesson learned: don't leave three year olds and paint alone!!!
