A couple of weeks ago I shared this fun and easy project you can make to use for Valentine’s Day decorations inspired by this one on Tatertots and Jello. It’s one of the easiest projects I’ve ever made, and I still love looking at it daily!
This project took me just a few minutes and was easy enough to do that I could work on one step, give my toddler a snack, do another step, give my toddler a drink, and finish it up. All in just a few minutes total! If you do this all in one sitting, it really won’t take you more than 5-10 minutes tops.
Easy Valentine’s Day Decorations
- Four picture frames (I used 4×6)
- Four different but coordinating pieces of scrapbook paper
- Valentine’s day M&Ms or other colored candies
- Hot glue gun
- Double-sided tape
- Measuring tape or ruler
Step 1 – Take the glass and placeholder paper out of the picture frame. Using a piece of double-sided tape, tape the paper to the back of one of your pieces of scrapbook paper. Cut around the placeholder paper to get a piece of scrapbook paper that is a perfect fit for your frame. Repeat for all four pieces of scrapbook paper.
Step 2 – Using your measuring tape or ruler, find the middle of the card and hot glue one M&M directly in the middle. Hot glue the other M&Ms in an X shape on two of the cards. I chose to put red M&Ms on two black scrapbook paper pieces, but you can do whatever works best with your decorations.
Step 3 – On your other two pieces of scrapbook paper, hot glue M&Ms in an O shape. Then put all four of the pages back into the frames (take the glass out first!), putting the glass behind the scrapbook paper to both give the page more support and so you can use the frame with glass later.
I’m already thinking about what versions of this craft I could make for all of the other holidays! I could see the word lucky being cute or maybe Ho Ho for Christmas. The possibilities are pretty endless!
