DIY PAINTED WOODEN HEART MAGNETS


hellooooo!

i know i know. it's been way too long since the last time i posted on here but this whole "new year, new you" thing has motivated me to come back. plus i just did a super cute valentine's day craft that i want to share with you!

i actually put together this project for a "sisters craft day" with my local sisters-in-law. i knew i wanted to do something valentine's themed for the upcoming holiday but was having a hard time finding anything on pinterest that wasn't too kid-ish. then i remembered a diy i saw on the almost makes perfect blog and thought i could spice it up real nice for v-day.

not to brag or anything, but i love how it turned out!

now without further ado... the tutorial.



supplies





directions


01. set out your paints, brushes, and hearts and paint those bad boys to your heart's content! you may want to lay an old newspaper down to protect the surface you're painting on from spills. 

02. once the paint is dry (the Ceramcoat paints i used dried quick!) you may choose to glue a few of the hearts together to create a look with more dimension. my sisters-in-law did that and they turned out super cute! i chose not to stack mine because i prefer a more minimal look.

03. now is the time to apply the magnets! i purchased two different types of magnets (i linked my fave) and ended up preferring the peel and stick method over needing to use superglue. you may notice in my pictures that the glue bled through one of my smallest hearts, totally wrecking its cuteness! lol
      if you do decide to go the glue-on route, you'll need to let your magnets dry for a few hours before sticking them to anything.



and there you go! i love the way this simple look feels so festive on my refrigerator without overwhelming my home with pink and hearts and glitter hahaha

with a sweet note, and maybe a bit of chocolate, these hearts would be the cutest little valentine's gift for any of your friends.

i hope you enjoy this diy! feel free to share it with your friends and family -- if you do, be sure to share a picture on instagram and tag me! it would make me so happy to see what you create :) 

what do you have planned for valentine's day? i hope you have a happy and love-filled day!




p.s. another simple valentine's day craft and don't forget that st patricks day is coming up!

  1. something i forgot to mention! i made the polka dots by dipping the tip of the handle of my paintbrush in the paint and gently dabbing it onto the wood. works like a charm!
