DIY HEART STAMP
For those brave enough to let their kids use paint, this is a fun little art project for Valentine’s Day. Even better is you probably already have everything you need to do this.
What You’ll Need:
- 1 cardboard paper towel tube, cut in half or 2 cardboard TP tubes
- Acrylic paint in various colors
- Something to put pain on, I used a plastic plate
- Paper to stamp on. I used a brown paper gift bag.
I don’t have a particular brand of paint I like best. I usually go by the color I am looking for or what is on sale. Acrylic paint is not very expensive to begin with but a sale never hurt anyone. I already had the colors I used at home but specifically they were Craft Smart in Fuchsia, Martha Stewart Crafts in Poodle Skirt, Craft Smart in white, and FolkArt Metallic in Gold.
Using your hands, mold the tubes into a shape of a heart. It does not have to be perfect, just the general shape.
On a plastic plate or whatever surface you plan to put your paint, squeeze out enough to fit the tube/stamp.
Gently dip one side of each tube into the paint.
Stamp the paint onto your desired surface. Be patient and let it dry fully before displaying.
