This may have been from my Hometalk Live for Valentine's Day but this art project is good for anytime of year!
I would love to have you subscribe to my blog to see my latest posts, projects, recipes, exclusives, and more - Chas' Crazy Creations
Time: 15 Minutes Cost: $3 Difficulty: Easy
First paint your canvas - I used black acrylic paint which came from Walmart. Let it dry completely.
I purchased this mirror "Love" sticker from Dollar Tree.
Put the sticker at the bottom of your canvas.
Start putting in thumb tacks in the shape of a heart.
Leave it open in the middle or fill the whole thing in - the choice is yours. If you are worried about the back, you can hot glue the thumb tacks into place, or cut out a piece of foam board for reinforcements.
Use an ice pick to make holes where you want the lights to go.
Push the lights in through the back. These are a 10 pack of LED battery operated lights from Dollar Tree.
Add sticker embellishments if desired. I used jewel heart stickers.
Turn the lights on and you're done.
