A couple of years ago YC and I did some lovely scrape art, which I eventually turned into placemats.  I thought it would be a nice idea to do some scrape art hearts for Valentine’s Day.  They would also make a nice homemade card to send to friends while we are stuck in lockdown.

Make sure you follow my Valentine’s Craft board on Pinterest for more ideas.  Don’t forget to save the pin for later.

To make your own scrape art hearts you will need:

  • Paper
  • Scissors
  • Paint
  • Tape

On a piece of paper cut out a heart shape.  Stick this template over another plain piece of paper.

At the top of the heart add some dots of paint.  Then using an old plastic card like a gift card, scrape it down over the paint.

BB really enjoyed doing this and made quite a few different hearts.  He was very particular about which colours he wanted.  For the last piece we did it on a canvas and sprinkled glitter across it as a Valentine’s Day present for his parents.
