Do you ever see things and think “that’s cute, but it would be even cuter if I did…”?That’s what I thought when I saw these Valentine blocks at the Target Dollar Spot. They were in a package of 3 for $3.00. They are cute as they are, but I thought they’d be even cuter with a little paint, hearts, and scrapbook paper.

I got out my acrylic paints (this is a great set if you need to resupply your craft room) and painted each of the blocks to cover up the lettering. It did take a few coats and I thought maybe if I had sanded the blocks a little it would have been easier. Of course, I thought of that too late. 😝
The blocks measure about 3.75-inches square and are about 3/4-inch thick. I had some 3-inch thin wood hearts that I had picked up from Hobby Lobby in the seasonal section. I traced the hearts on the back of some scrapbook paper, cut them out, and used a thin coat of Mod Podge to glue them to the hearts. I used foam brushes to apply both the paint and the Mod Podge. I attached the hearts to the wood blocks using E600 clear adhesive.
Super easy to make and I think they turned out really cute! ❤️
They are the perfect size to add to tiered trays. (You can find the info on my Vintage-Look Valentine Treat Jars here.)
I like them on my mantel, too! (Here’s the post on my Farmhouse Valentine Canvas and the info on my Valentine Garland is here.)
They are the perfect size to add a little extra love to my Valentine decor. ❤️
Keep your eyes open for things that you can add some creativity to and make them into something perfect for your home! You never know what you will find…
Happy Valentine’s Day! ❤️
