    I would suggest either covering with fabric (for the simpler/quicker project) or hand painting a base color then gluing pretty beads over the entire heart-or a design of beads. Similar to a Fabrege Egg.

    Cover it with fake flower heads and add some pretty broaches or pearl pins for accents.

    Staple pretty fabric to the cardboard heart, and attach ribbon for a hanger. Cute bulletin board!

    Cover with a collage of photos associated with the family (Mothers Day) or for the birthday significant events in the birthday boy/girls life. Then make it a wall feature by adding a light in the back (battery powered so all the cables are neatly hidden) or a string of lights battery powered around edge to lightup the photos. Add a hook to make a wall feature. kindly Clare

    Cover the cardboard with aluminum foil, then bake cakes, let them cool, then cut them into heart shapes almost the same size as the cardboard. Place the heart shaped cakes (which may consist of multiple pieces, depending on how you made the heart) on the aluminum-covered cardboard and Frost them. Suggestion: red velvet cake. Easy, quick, and inexpensive

    Acrylic paints don't have much odor and are not flammable, you could paint with those

    You could do quilling , I have done a similar heart. Or you could make paper roses out of old book pages.
    , Use quilling papers tiny amount of PVA Use cocktail stick to apply glue Add a small eye hook to top to hang ribbon from, Finished heart, The roses I put on a canvas but could easily be put on the heart form

    Personalizing is a way to endear your project of love to the person receiving it, they will cherish it forever. Colors, lace, a message about how they have affected your life and vice versa, what they mean to you.

    I wonder if Unicorn Spit would work on cardboard. U-Spit, acrylic craft paints, and Mod Podge seem to be the best alternatives to spray paint.
