Create the look of leaded glass for your favorite Valentine with these shimmery sweet projects. We recently have noticed several comments on our Facebook page inquiring if Galley Glass is still around? Well today we wanted to shout it from the rooftops, YES! Gallery Glass is still around and not going anywhere. It is such an amazing product that allows you to create beautiful stained glass looks easily. These shimmer Valentine glass art projects are a perfect way to spread the love this holiday. Julie Lewis created these projects. Below are all the materials you will need to make this project, and to see the instructions click here.
The possibilities are truly endless when it comes to what you can create with Mod Podge. One trend we have recently seen an upswing in is jewelry crafting with Mod Podge. Mel from MamamBuzz created some fabulous DIY jewelry using several items from Plaid’s Mod Podge line. Mel made some necklaces and rings using the podgeable shapes, and they look great. This is a perfect project to make over the weekend, and then use as gifts to give on Valentine’s Day. To learn step by step how to make this project click here.

Lucky for you there are several quick and easy crafts you can make in time for this holiday. Check out this Mod Podge Recipe Valentine Tray, we discovered on Debbiedoo’s.

I went a little crazy buying wooden hearts for painting and decorating. I love hearts. This one ended up with a glittery heartbeat that keeps time. Here’s how to make your own:
Gather one large wooden heart, paint brushes and your favorite Folk Art acrylic paints and glitter paints. You’ll also need a drill, clock kit and specific drill bit size (see clock kit package for size)
