Valentine’s Day is next week. Are you ready for this day of love? If you have yet to begin planning or crafting no worries you still have time. 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)
