They are very easy and fun to make, plus they also look adorable. All thanks to Hot Humble Pie via YouTube for making this compilation.
Paint the wood with white using a brush, then print out 4 hearts from the internet and cut them out. Place 2 hearts each on the wood and attach using a glue stick. Use a sponge to carefully add some brown border/shadow to the hearts, brush the border of the wood as well with black and brown for a rustic and antique wood look.
Trace and mark the shape of the truck onto the cardboard and paint it white. Use parchment paper to trace the details of the image, then carbon paper to transfer it onto the cardboard. Combine the white and brown paint, then use the mixture to outline the image. Draw the other details with a marker, then paint the surface with acrylic. Get the heart foam stickers and sponge paint them with white to make them cloudy and light, accent with antique wax. Remove the sticker at the back and stick it on the truck, super glue the valentine’s sign.
Spray jars with white primer and let dry. Make pink stripes with a sponge and pink paint, attach a ribbon around the top of the jar with hot glue, stick foam hearts in the middle, and place flowers inside the jar.
Place 3 large craft sticks beside each other, then place a small stick on top diagonally, and trace a line, do this to the other side as well. Cut the stick and follow the marked line, place them back together, then apply hot glue at each gap, and place two smaller pieces of craft stick on them. Cut a small craft stick shorter then attach it at the bottom. Dry brush with white paint, then print out a text/sentence and cut it out. Stick it onto the wood, then drill 2 holes on each top corner of the wood. Dry brush with brown lightly to create streaks, add a bit of black on the edges. Roll wire on a pencil and turn it into a curly spring then insert the ends to both holes, and hang.
Trace the heart-shaped box onto the paper, cut out, then set aside. Paint the box with white and let dry. Spread glue stick inside the box then stick the paper properly. Burn off the fray edges of the rope, then attach with hot glue inside the edges of the heart, apply antique wax outside the box. Measure the width inside the box and cut the ribbon with its size, hot glue the ribbon in the middle, then add a bow at the center. Cut a large wooden stick into a small tag, then drill and end, get a foam heart and drill a hole on the top as well. Poke a hole thru the top of the heart-shaped box and insert a curly wire. Make a smaller curly wire for the foam heart, then hang it inside the box, and add a little flower at the top.
