Valentine’s Day is around the corner and this DIY multimedia card is the perfect creation for your loved ones and friends! Cotton ball heart painting is a super easy Valentine’s Day craft for kids of any age, we took it a step further and used OOLY’s gorgeous watercolors as a base for this Valentine craft. Whether you use it as a card or a decoration, it is sure to make everyone smile this February!
Time Duration: 30-60 minutes
Skill Level: Beginner
OOLY Products Needed:
- Lil’ Watercolor Paint Pad
- Lil’ Paint Brush Set
- Lil’ Poster Paint Pods
- Lil’ Watercolor Paint Pods
- Stampables Scented Double-ended Stamp Markers
Other Items Needed:
- Scissors (adult supervision required)
- Cotton Balls
Step 4: Place the heart in the center of the square paper and hold it in place while dipping your cotton ball in the Lil’ Poster Paint Pods and then dabbing it along the edge of the heart to create the heart like shape. Do this as many times as you’d like. You can fill the entire paper or dab just along the outline of the heart. Remove the paper heart so it does not stick to your square paper and let it dry.
Step 5: Use your Stampables to create fun messages in the middle of the heart. Feel free to decorate this as you please! You could even leave it blank and use as a cute heart decoration for the month of February.
If you have children, grandkids, or are a teacher, this would be a perfect easy and fun watercolor craft project to do with your littles. Enjoy!
