Easy DIY Valentine’s Day Wall Art Ideas
1. With birds and hearts:
Why limit Valentine’s Day crafts to just hearts? Create a beautiful collage of birds and hearts. You will require an A4 size card stock paper in white. Cut out silhouettes of birds and hearts from scraps of printed fabric. You should choose bright and cheery colors like red, pink, yellow etc. Plan a layout on the card stock paper and use adhesive to stick the cut outs. Frame and decorate your new wall art.

Embroidery hoops are a novel way of decorating your walls this Valentine’s Day. Embroidered hoops make for cute Valentine’s Day gifts as well. You will need embroidery hoops in different sizes along with supplies like printed fabric, buttons, embroidery threads and felt to decorate your hoops. Cover your hoop in a neutral color like light pink. Cut a piece of felt in the shape of a heart. Hot glue bright another layer of a smaller heart. Adhere these layers onto the embroidery hoop. Use embroidery threads to make small stitches around the heart.

3. With floating hearts:
Upcycle an old frame with floating hearts to create an unusual wall art. Pick out an old frame and take out the backing cardboard. Repaint the frame to give it a fresh look. Cut out hearts in different shapes, sizes, colors and patterns from card stock paper or craft paper. You can also use old greeting cards with interesting designs for your hearts. Create a layout inside the frame and lay the string on top of the hearts. Glue tem together when you are happy with the layout. Finally glue the string in place at the back of your frame.
