These DIY Glitter Valentine Magnets are a fun craft to do with kids. They are simple to create and only use three items to make! Plus, children can customize them with different colors, adding google eyes, etc. And once you create the glitter hearts you don’t JUST have to turn them into magnets! They have lots of uses.
Elmer’s School Glue
Fine Glitter in Valentine ColorsWax or Freezer Paper
Lay out a sheet of wax paper or freezer paper (shiny side up).
Using Elmer’s School Glue, draw an outline of a heart and then fill in completely. For younger children, draw an outline of some hearts with a pen and then have them trace it with glue and then fill in.
When they are completely dry they will pop right off the paper. I then placed some heavy objects on top of the ones that curled a bit more than I liked. I left them like that for an hour, though you can also trim them with scissors.
To create the DIY Valentine Picture Display I used a large clothespin, hot glue and one of the glitter hearts. I simply hot glued the glitter heart to the clothespin, the side that opens facing up. Add a picture and voila!
