Valentine's Q-tip Painting

Today I am sharing with you my daughters wood heart that she painted for her Daddy using Q-tips.

I had this wood heart sitting around that we had purchased from Michael's a while back. 
I painted it a solid teal then let her have at it once it was dry.

I gave her some Q-tips to decorate with and she loved it. 
She didn't really do so much of the dotting with them the entire time, she is a toddler with her own imagination so she just went crazy but in the end I love it because it shows her true self in the project. 

She had to decorate the paper too she said :)

She was so happy once it was all done and said she was so happy to give it to her Daddy.

Once it was try I also gave it a spray of a satin clear finish to seal it and give it some shine. 

Need some fun art for kids for this Valentine's Day? Check out my daughters fun projects here.

Thanks for visiting,


  1. For a toddler she did a darned good job of painting. Love the color scheme with the aqua. You'll be keeping things like that to show your kids when they grow up. I still have a few things even after many years and many moves. There are some things just meant to be kept. Her little hands are so sweet.

    1. Thank you :) She is getting really good at and loving to do arts and crafts. Its fun to see what she can do now days. I love all these projects that can be kept forever :)
