Good Morning!  Do you decorate for Valentine's Day?  I don't go too crazy with decor, but I like to have a little bit up to celebrate the holiday.

When I looked back over my last two years of blogging, I noticed that around Valentine's Day and Easter I seem to get in the mood to be crafty.  Not sure what it is about these holidays, but I'm back at it this year for Valentine's Day with a super easy diy canvas art piece.

This is a really easy diy that will add a little Valentine cheer to your home.  I had all the supplies on hand for this one, which is why it came to be.

Here's a little mini tutorial in case you would like to make one for yourself.
  1. Supplies:  a canvas size of your choice, light gray paint, foam brush, painters tap, cardboard heart cut-out, light pink paint, pink glitter and glue.
  2. Measure and tape off stripes on the canvas.  I spaced these 1 1/2 inches apart.  Then paint canvas with gray paint and remove tape.
  3. Paint heart cut-out with light pink paint.
  4. Immediately sprinkle heart with pink glitter while paint is still wet.  Then set aside to dry.
  5. When paint and glitter is dry on heart cut-out, attach it to the canvas with glue.
Easy, right?

My daughter has already claimed this canvas art piece for her room after Valentine's Day, which I think will be a perfect addition!

Have a beautiful day!
