How to decorate mini chalkboards – Be Mine DIY. I love finding easy ways to make DIY home decor for Valentine’s Day and crafts for Valentine’s Day. I picked up a few crafting supplies for my Valentine’s Day Crafts project. We started with cute chalkboard frames, pretty red glitter and a be mine stamp in a banner style. Then I added a few items I had on hand to make it perfect for use on Valentine’s Day!

Let me show you how easy this Crafts Valentine Day project is to do. This craft project will include a tutorial, supply list, and resources to enable you to create the same project or something similar.

This craft DIY can also be done a Valentine’s Day project to do with the kids, used as a teen craft or an adult Valentine’s Day craft. You can put quite a few spins on the ideas making each one unique. I hand Stamped the chalkboard with the be mine after adding a bit of Valentine’s glitter to the outside frames!  But, you could use a chalk pen to handwrite a little message too. You cand also use this project for a DIY wedding.

Crafts Valentines Day-Steps for Glittering Frames and hearts_Crafting_ 2014

 The steps are easy. Tip if glittering do a bunch at once following these directions –

  1. Cover work area with wax paper (to pick up excess glitter and save it)
  2. Spread glue onto the frame but, make sure not too thick and try not to drip onto the chalkboard. Tip: have handy a damp rag ready to wipe off drips.
  3. Glitter frame and let dry! (ya, you might not want to glitter it as much as in the photo, just enough to fully cover glue area)
  4. Again, let completely dry! This is where you go up in the laundry or read a book to the kids.
  5. Shake off excess glitter onto your wax paper and pour back into the jar. Tip: if using different color glitters use a different piece of wax paper for each color.

Chalk Pen on a stamp_ Theresa Huse 2014

Shake your chalk pen with the lid on up and down to distribute the ink inside of the pen tip. Test on paper that nib has ink flowing to tip. Color stamp with the desired color and quickly place stamp where you want it inked applying pressure. (don’t lift up and down) Then lift off. If not enough ink or too much and blurs wipe off and try again.\

Vary your designs tie together two wood glittered hearts and hot glue to corner of the chalkboard. Of course, I needed to make some gold ones! I would have used my white chalk pen but, it ran out of ink. Note to self get a new one! lol

Try making your own designs in chalk pens and if you don’t like it just erase with a damp cloth and redo them. If you want to make them permanent there are products on the market you can spray on top to seal it.

Crafts Valentines DayBe Mine Chalkboard Craft on vintage hanger

Next just find some cool vintage hanger to re-purpose. This was a tarnished piece I found and spray painted gold. Then set your pretty board on it for display and make some more to give away! On a sunny day or in the garage spray your glitter with Krylon 6-Ounce Crystal Clear Acrylic Coating Aerosol Spray this will seal your glitter. (make sure to cover chalkboard with paper when doing this!) I hope you enjoyed this easy Valentine’s Day project!
