6 DIY paint chip Valentine Day crafts

6 Valentine Day Paint Chip Crafts

Hi there! It’s Deanna, from Mirabelle Creations, and I’m excited to share six easy and inexpensive (my favorite combination!) Valentine’s Day crafts. With just a heart shaped punch and a few paint chips from your local home improvement shop, you can recreate these sweet looks.

Valentine’s Day is one of my favorite holidays. By the middle of February, Christmas decorations have been put away for some time and all those toys from Christmas don’t seem so shiny and new. Valentine’s Day is a perfect way to add just a little sparkle to the long stretch between Christmas and Easter. Our family Valentine’s Day usually consists of a few simple decorations, little trinkets to show how much we appreciate one another, and a Valentine’s Day themed dinner. Make sure you hop over to my blog and download my FREE Owl Always Love You Valentine Party Printables!

I have six heart shaped crafts for your Valentine’s Day:

  1. Heart Garland,
  2. Heart Cupcake Toppers,
  3. Beverage / Bottle Pendant,
  4. Heart Hair Ribbon,
  5. Heart Canvas Art, and
  6. Heart Favor Bags.

Heart Craft Punch

To start you need a heart shaped punch. I picked mine up at a local crafts store. With a 40% coupon, it only cost about $6. Then, you’ll want to stop by your favorite paint shop or home improvement store to pick up paint chips. (Tip: If you’re wondering where to get paint chips. Ask the paint desk, they’re glad to give you any old paint chips that they plan to throw away. And if they don’t have your color, most craft stores offer cardstock shades, and each sheet is between .16 and .25 each.) With those items and a few other craft supplies, you’ll be ready to get started.

Paint Chip Heart Banner Craft

DIY Heart Garland

For this garland, you’ll also need a hot glue gun and bakers twine (or other string). To make the garland, simply hot glue two hearts of the same color on either side of the twine. Gluing together two hearts of the same color will assure that when you hang the garland, the backside of the paint chip will not show.

Paint Chip Heart Cupcake Picks

Easy Heart Cupcake Toppers

These paint chip party supplies couldn’t be simpler! After punching out your paint chip heart, use a glue dot to attach the heart to a small lollipop stick. If you don’t have lollipop sticks on hand, you could also use a toothpick. And if no glue dots, a spot of hot glue works every time!

Quick Beverage / Bottle Pendants

To decorate a plain glass bottle, simply wrap baker’s twine around the bottle and secure with a glue dot. Use a glue dot to also adhere the paint chip heart to the glass bottle. The heart shape bottle pendant is a great way to turn an ordinary after school snack into a extraordinary Valentine’s Day treat.

Paint Chip Hair Bow

Simple Heart Hair Ribbon

My little girl has decided she has gotten a little too big for a Valentine’s Day t-shirt or outfit. But, she is definitely not too big to go to school on Valentine’s Day with a heart inspired hairdo! By simply hot gluing paint chip hearts onto the end of a ribbon, a French braid becomes a subtle holiday hairdo.

Paint Chip Heart Canvas

Lovely Heart Canvas Art

I wanted to add just a little bit of Valentine’s Day décor to my mantle, without going overboard. I saw a rainbow heart shaped canvas project on Pinterest and knew it would be a clean, unassuming addition to the mantle. To make this project, choose paint chips that create a ombre effect and hot glue them onto an 8×10 canvas.

Paint Chip crafts

Sweet Valentine Heart Favor Bags

For the heart favor bags, you’ll also need favor bags, twine, and glitter glue. Trace the outline of your paint chip heart with glitter glue. Wrap baker’s twine around a small favor bag and attach the twine to the back of the bag with tape. After the glitter glue dries, glue the heart to the bag and fill with candy or a small treat.

chocolate dipped Valentine spoons

These chocolate dipped Valentine spoons took only a few minutes to make and will be perfect for stirring a bit of sweet into your sweet’s hot chocolate or coffee on Valentine’s day! {grin}

Here’s what you’ll need to make chocolate dipped Valentine spoons:

  • Wilton pink chocolate (available at your local craft store)
  • Wilton candy hearts
  • Spoons (I picked these up at Target)

And here are the super easy steps to making chocolate dipped Valentine spoons and stir sticks:

  1. Melt 7-8 chocolate wafers in a glass bowl on 8 second intervals in the microwave, stirring with a toothpick.
  2. Dip your spoon and level off chocolate with your toothpick.
  3. Add candy heart embellishments.
  4. Let dry on wax paper until set.

Tip: Don’t overheat or continue to reheat your chocolate. Heat just enough to melt and dip one spoon and set aside to set. If you overheat you’ll get a white film on your chocolate.

As always, I hope you’re inspired to craft, bake, create and celebrate!

love you to the moon cake

Today is my 16th wedding anniversary. I know! 16 years! Eeeekkk! Let’s just pretend I got married at age 10 so I can be 26… {smirk}

So for the occasion, and in the spirit of all my super easy DIY cakes lately (nautical baby shower cake, robot birthday cake, Easter bunny cake, patriotic red, white and blue cake), I made a “love you to the moon” cake. I meant for there to be a moon… but I ran out of time. You moms know the drill! {grin}

So here’s what you’ll need:

  • Flat iced two layer cake (preferably from your favorite bakery so you don’t have to bake)
  • Pink heart marshmallows
  • Needle
  • Cross-stitch thread
  • Pink sixlets (to hide your cake edges); I picked mine up at Party City

Just thread your needle, lightly dampen the sting, and thread the marshmallows. Be gentle or they’ll break/split. Once threaded, just place small dots of icing on the cake sides, make sure your marshmallow string is evenly spaced apart, and attach. It’s that easy!

As always, I hope you’re inspired to craft, bake and create! Happy Friday and Hoppy Easter!

DIY teacher Valentines

My little ones are taking these fun DIY Valentine pencils to school today as teacher gifts! I saw this clever idea on Simply J Studio and couldn’t resist wrapping them up.

You’ll need Rolos, a Hershey’s Kiss, scrapbook paper and a bit of hot glue!

Cut your scrapbook paper 3.5”x4.5” (I made my horizontal stripe eraser a bit shorter than my yellow pencil paper)  and begin by wrapping your eraser paper around the Rolos first.

Next, wrap the yellow paper, attach with a few dots of glue, and attach the kiss for the pencil tip! I also added a little note that says “You’re The Write Teacher For Me!”

Simple J Studio added a few more touches that I wish I had had time for, but alas I was running a bit behind. Hop over to her blog for more details!
