Valentine's Day Kids Craft - Conversation Heart Photo FramesI took down our Christmas decorations last week, and since it’s been so warm here lately it felt a little silly to decorate with a chilly winter mantel…so I jumped straight to my Valentine’s Day decorations!  As soon as I hung up my heart card garland, the boys wanted to make a Valentine’s craft of their own. I dug around in my supplies and came up with a super easy and cute Valentine’s Day kids craft – conversation heart photo frames!

Conversation Heart Photo Frame Supplies

What You’ll Need:

  • Unfinished wood frames (I picked up ours for $1 each at Michaels)
  • Craft paint (I love the Glamour Dust line from DecoArt! Best glitter paint EVER!)
  • Candy conversation hearts
  • Tacky glue or low temperature glue gun

Valentine's Day Kids Craft - Conversation Heart FramesStart by painting the blank frame. My boys chose to paint their frames a solid color first and then top it with a glittery layer.

Conversation Heart Kids Craft for Valentine's DayBrush a thin layer of tacky glue on to the face of the frame, and start gluing on the candy hearts. Take care that the layer of glue isn’t too thick or else the candies run the risk of melting/dissolving in the glue if it takes too long to dry. Alternately, a low temperature glue gun also works really well to adhere the conversations hearts to the frames.

  1. I want to make the tissue paper heart but I didn’t see instructions on how to make the tissue squares into flowers. If you could email me that, I would appreciate it. Thanks
