Little Valentine's House Display

 Hi everyone! I hope you are doing well. I've been creating a few crafts for Valentine's. Today we are creating a quick and simple Valentine's house display. I love working with scrap wood pieces that I find around our home. I found the little house during my Christmas shopping. I found it at my local Target store. It comes in a pack of two and it was for $1.00. It included the houses, along with paint. I decided to ditch the paint included in the pack since the colors were Christmas colors. If you're ready let's turn this little wood house into a sweet Valentine's house display.






Materials needed

One scrap square wood piece

One wood house

Mod podge

Acrylic paint

Paintbrush

Scissors

Floral cutters

Faux floral

Hot glue or any adhesive

One fabric heart decoration

Decorative craft paper

One pencil for tracing


Start by taking your wood square section and using your pencil, begin to trace it out onto your decorative craft paper. Once you have traced it out, use your scissors to cut out the traced shape.

Next, take your mod podge and apply a thin coat to your wood section. Place your paper on top of your mod podge. I always use my blow dryer when I work with applying mod podge. Remove any creases or visible lines. Once you have done so, take your paintbrush and apply a thin layer on top of your decorative paper. Repeat the steps, and use your blow dryer over the top surface of your mod podge.

Take your acrylic paint and apply it around the four sections of your wood piece.


You are now ready to apply your paint to your wooden house. I ended up combing my white and pink acrylic paints together. I did this when applying paint to the roof of my wooden house. I painted the rest of the house using my white paint.




After, take your fabric heart and using hot glue add it to the front of your wooden house.



Next, using either hot glue or another adhesive, add your wooden house to your wood square. I found that using an adhesive like E6000 worked much better. The hot glue left my wooden house with a larger gap between the house and the wood square. Definitely see what works better for you.


Lastly, take your floral cutters and begin to cut your floral. I wanted to add three of my flowers to the wood section. I used a little hot glue when attaching my flowers to my wood square. I went with larger flowers, but feel free and go with any size floral that you choose.



Your wooden Valentine's house display is complete. This lovely little house makes a great addition to a tiered tray near a heart garland, or near other Valentine-themed decorations. You can also display it on a fireplace mantel. I hope that you have enjoyed this simple craft creation. Be sure to let me know if you decide to create your very own. Thank you so much for stopping by. I'll see you soon.

  2. This is so sweet. I love the idea you can take craft supplies originally designed for Christmas and switch them up for a different season.
