There’s just something about little hands and feet that make me go all melty inside. To that end, I wanted to take the handprint heart valentines that seem to be popular every year and put my own spin on them.

Materials:
8×10 canvas
craft paints
stamps and ink pad
washi tape (not shown)

Step 1: Carefully take your children’s hands, paint with the craft paint, and overlap them to create a heart shape on your canvas. You’ll get some “fun mom” points if you let your eldest paint his own hand 🙂

Step 2: Once you have your “heart,” outline it with a pencil so you’ll have a guide for your “xo” stamps.

Step 3: Carefully stamp around your outline. Once dry, you can go back and erase your pencil marks. Add in the date, and, lastly, cover the sides of your canvas with washi tape.

So funny that I stumbled upon your post today. I am doing a similar craft but with footprints. I LOVE how you used the stamps to create a heart. Very clever and beautiful! Happy early Valentine's Day! Xo

Tgis is such an adorable idea and something to cherish through out the years. I've been wanting to do door decorations for each holiday for my boys. I just have yet to do so, maybe now would be a great time to start and give this one a try.

YES! This is amazing, this would be such a great home decor to do with the kids. I may just have to do this, I have tons of paint. We have done crafts like this for Thanksgiving & Christmas, never thought of doing it for Valentines Day. Pinning!!
