Easy Light Up Love Art

5 Materials
15 Minutes
This may have been from my Hometalk Live for Valentine's Day but this art project is good for anytime of year!

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.
