I am really excited for Valentines Day! My daughter and I recently made a handprint heart plate. It is super easy, cheap, and I think it looks pretty darn cute!
- red paint
- white paper
- pink tissue paper squares
- glass plate from the dollar store
- modpodge/ foam brush
Using red paint, have your child stamp their handprints in a heart shape. Then cut out the paper in the shape of a heart.
Turn the plate over (so the back is facing you). Put the heart facedown on the back of the plate. Then modpodge it on until the heart sticks to the plate.
Modpodge the tissue paper squares on to the back of the plate to fill in the gaps. Be careful not to rip or tear the tissue paper during this process.
After the plate was covered in tissue paper squares, I modpodged a paper on the back of the heart that has my daughter’s name and age.
Love the way the light shines through. I love the dollar store, too! Never thought of getting plates there though.
This is such a cute idea. Great way to jazz up a cheap, simple plate. 🙂
