Painted $1 Craft Frames (Valentine’s Day)


On Thursday I am in charge of my son’s first grade Valentine’s Day party. For me this is the super fun part of having school age kids! They get so excited, and actually so do I.

I wanted to come up with a craft each child could make for their parents. A few years ago we made these exact frames at a local Michael’s in store craft workshop and my husband still has his on his desk at work.

So last week we painted thirty of these $1 unfinished wood frames a background color so each child can embellish them during the class party.




I had my daughter make an example of how to do some cute thumbprint hearts on her frame.




My son used a heart shaped cookie cutter to stamp hearts in two different colors.







I decided to join in and paint one with chalkboard paint.

Just add a favorite photo and you’ve got a fantastic personal Valentine.

So what sort of craft s have you been doing this month? I’d love to see.
