2. Sweetheart Hair Pin
Make heart shapes from felt in two sizes. Place them one over the other such that the larger heart shape serves as a backdrop for the smaller one. Get a single prong hair clip and glue it to the back of the heartfelt. Set aside to dry. Glue small bow to the front part to complete the look.
3. Pom Pom Monsters
These cute little things can be attached to chocolate boxes, cards and even put on the table. Take a bunch of pink wool and start rolling it around the palm of your hand.

To complete the monster look, affix eyes and antennas made from artificial flower stems and foam hearts. Place heart card stock at the base to complete the look.

Place this heart shape on the square and check how much of spacing you want between the sticks and glue the paper to the sticks. You would need a saw to cut out the shape on the wood pieces. Affix wood sticks to the back to give strength to the structure. You can also add a hanging wire at the back to hang the board. Now paint in shades of pink, red and white to complete the look. You can write beautiful messages on the board for your family on Valentine’s Day.
