Take some simple 2″ wood hearts and paint them with red, pink gold acrylic paint. I choose red. Cut out your Valentine’s Day ephemera images. Pick vintage images, modern images…Glue them onto the dried painted wood hearts. Spread glue around the area you want to have your glitter. When completely dry you can dust off extra by using a dry paintbrush. Cut ribbon to the length you wish and attach with the hot glue gun. Add a button to embellish.
Simple as that you have a pretty little Valentine Heart to hang or give a loved one.
