As you know by now, I’m a crafty mom. I love getting ideas from Pinterest and other blogs for craft time with the kids. I’m so thankful I had the opportunity to share easy DIY Valentine’s Day cards on my local news. I enjoy sharing craft ideas with the viewers of GOOD DAY TAMPA BAY on Fox 13 News. My first time appearing on the network was last year for Valentine’s Day. I truly enjoy visiting the station for my segments. It’s always a pleasure working with Laura Moody. She makes me feel comfortable in front of the camera.
I demonstrated how to create three easy DIY Valentine’s Day cards using items that many of you already have in your home. They can also be purchased at your local craft store. Don’t forget to check online for coupons. Many of the craft stores offer coupons for a single item that is not on sale. You can view the segment on Fox 13 News website.
If you are still looking for adorable DIY Valentine’s Day cards that are easy to make, here’s tutorials for the crafts seen in the segment:
On a piece of white cardstock, allow your child to cover it with paint using fingers or brush. If you want to keep things mess-free, place the paper inside of a resealable bag then tape it to the ground. Have the child move the paint around inside of the resealable bag. Allow it to dry.
Trace letters (LOVE) on the dry painted paper then cut. I used letters I purchased from Target but you can also find templates online.
Finally, glue the letters on a piece of folded pink or purple cardstock to finish your card. Have your child draw pictures inside of the card or write a nice message to their friends or a family member.
