After making resin hearts in several colors, I found a way to include them in a super easy Valentine’s Day resin crafts project. All you have to do is include them in wall art!
- – cured and ready to use resin hearts
- – wooden canvases
- – acrylic paint
- – metallic paint or metallic wax
- – Mod Podge glue
- – foam brush
- – E-6000 glue
- – art paper (and scissors or paper trimmer)
- – twine
- – Dremel drill and eye hooks (any size, as long as they are compatible, I used a drill bit of 1/16)
What makes this easy Valentine’s Day resin crafts so simple to create is by using premade art boards. I had these wooden canvases on hand for resin painting, but since it’s such nice wood I thought it might be neat to create a plaque using my resin heart.
As an added twist and to mimic a bit of a shallow shadow box I turned it around and used the back! I used acrylic paint to coat the wood – a pearlescent white and a satin black.
For the middle of the wooden/sunken part of the wooden canvas, I will be gluing down some art paper. For this part, measure, measure, measure! I use a paper trimmer because otherwise my cuts are notoriously crooked. Make sure you work out any air bubbles in the paper by pressing down firmly.
Time to make some holes so I can add eye-hooks to be able to put my plaque on the wall. Since these have a rustic look, I will use twine. For the holes I used an 1/16 drill bit and eye-hooks that fit.
It’s time for the last step in your easy Valentine’s Day resin crafts wall art project! Time to add the resin hearts. I used E6000 Jewelry Glue because it’s super strong and reliable.
Here they are! Ready for Valentine’s Day and I’ll probably leave them on the wall year-round!
